#mootieuk12 – Some post-Moot thoughts

Phew, home at last… …four days after the end of the Moot!

This post is a way of processing some of the highlights of the first joint UK and Irish Moodlemoot (and an attempt to gain some more points for The Game) as well as my first trip to Ireland (although I’ll keep the tourism bits light).
