It was blue as far as the eye could see in Bournemouth during the Conservative Party conference.
Strolling along the scenic Bournemouth seafront I met my local MP, Peter Ainsworth.
Oliver Letwin was extremely upbeat and said the conference had shown a united party that was preparing for government.
I attended a fringe meeting where Dr Liam Fox outlined the Conservative plans for defence.
On his blog Guido Fawkes branded Iain Dale and I "Tory Totty". I tried to find Guido to point out that, unlike Iain Dale, I was not a Tory.
While I don't agree with much of what's written in The Sun newspaper I thought it was really great to chat to Trevor Kavanagh.
I tried to get my photo taken with William Hague but he wasn't interested. So I followed him into a reception with David Cameron and took his photo anyway.
"Alan Duncan is far too nice to be a member of the 'nasty party', surely?"
I attended a meeting with the shadow immigration minister and the Refugee Council. It was nice to see people who genuinely care about the most vulnerable in society.
Attending the conference on behalf of the BBC meant there was one event that I, and other licence fee payers, were very definitely not welcome at.
