A few years ago and in another life my ex wife, Dawn, and her mate, Bridget, loved Eurovision and one boozy saturday night, after a crate of beer, me and Bridgets husband agreed to go to the next Eurovision which was being held in Estonia.
Much against my better judgement we went and in all fairness had a great time. The music aside, the whole thing is just a huge European party, with a largely gay and cross dresser following, which, although I'm neither just added to the laughs. When we arrived in Tallinn, HMS Chatham was in port showing the flag and we ended on the lash with some of the boys from the ship. The following day we got a private tour of the ship which was pretty cool.
Can't remember how the UK got on but we did end up having a pre show beer with the legend that is Terry Wogan and finished up at the Irish after show party, (something not to be missed!)
Overall for the music it's a complete waste of time but as a party it's a corker!!
Live the life you love, love the life you live
