Getting the train down from Kirkcaldy to Haymarket, walking the Murrayfield mile from bar to bar mixing with Irish fans along the way - it was just a great day out.
And that for me is what I love about now working as Senior Events Manager for Scottish Rugby - of course the match is what everyone has come to see - but there is so much more that goes on around it to make it a full day of entertainment.
When I was at university I started doing some work at the stadium, mostly in the media and marketing team but also on matchdays I was in charge of the Pipers band, cueing them onto the pitch and looking after them for the duration.
After that the opportunity came up to work in their events team and now I am Senior Events Manager - all told I have been working here for about ten years.
Matchday when I first started was very different to what it is now.
It is a huge operation to get a matchday working smoothly and I have a lot of different plates to keep spinning at any one time.
Preparing for a match starts months out, there is not a lot of glamour in working in events - there are a lot of late nights.
Then on matchday I have to be in near constant contact with every member of my team.
From liaising with commercial, working with health and safety, touching base with the broadcast crews and looking after VIPs like HRH the Princess Royal - it is always busy.
But matchday is the best part of it, it is about so much more than the 80 minutes out on the pitch. I don't think people realise quite how much goes into it but all the hard work is worth it - especially when Scotland win.
SCOTLAND ON THE RISE
It's been great to have two home wins against two really great teams in this year's Championship and we have the chance of a third this weekend.
Ireland was so nerve-wracking whereas against Wales we had it in the bag and the buzz afterwards was just fantastic. Everyone stuck around to soak it in.
We had not beaten Wales in a long time so seeing that performance was great - it was probably my favourite day since I started in the job.
To see the crowd singing Flower of Scotland at the end, all off their own back, I have never heard the crowd so vocal and you could just sit back and listen and enjoy a game that we had won.
It's been amazing to be part of this team, it makes everybody so much happier to be in contention at the top end of the table.
Not many can say they work for the national team, I get to see great things and I feel very privileged, very few people in the world have a job like this.
And I don't just focus on the big picture stuff, we want to hear feedback of every kind from every fan and spectator, so we can have a world-class sporting event as well as a world-class team.
