Rafting and Promise Renewal

These photos, once more from the box of old snaps, show my brother and I standing on a raft out to sea off the cost of France. We went to this beach several times and when the tide was down, this raft was chained to the floor with the most enormous grime encrusted chain, but when the tide came in, we could swim out to it and spend a huge amount of time attempting to scramble on top. Brilliant! Rafting like it's 1997.

This week has been busy. I baked brownies for a couple of meetings I've had at school, we had Chinese take away in one of the maths rooms as we had to stay late for Year 11 Transition evening, and last night I took a load of Brownies and Guides to Trafalgar Square to celebrate the end of the Centenary year of Guiding. The event was packed and there was lots of music and dancing (of necessity as temperatures dropped!). Then at 20:10 pm on 20/10/2010 we all renewed our promise together and received a special commemorative promise badge to wear. It was lovely to be a part of it!

Oh, and in a week, I will FINALLY be able to take delivery of my bed.

Bring on half term! I'm kicking off tomorrow night with mac and cheese and film and friends night in. Perfect.

P.S. Apparently two large packages are waiting to be picked up at the Post Office. I smell scrapping supplies!

  4. I was a Queens Guide many years ago (tho maybe you never stop being one!) so I was thinking about the celebrations and about how much I enjoyed being part of it all. A wonderful thing to participate in.
