Another couple of memories-on-a-postcard in my collection of Postcards from Guide Camp. The top one describes how we made s'mores...
"For Guides: 2 digestive biscuits, 3 marshmallows, 5 chocolate buttons. Leader special: 3 digestive biscuits, marshmallows and chocolate: unlimited. Leave in campfire embers wrapped in foil until gooey".
The second is about my favourite time at camp...in the dark. For Guides, that means running around in the woods with torches, shrieking as people jump out at you and looking for the reflective silver stars we hid earlier. It means huddling around a campfire in camp blankets, singing silly songs, toasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate. Perfect.
(It also means explaining that there really aren't any flying red ants and that the reason the moths are fluttering against the tent is because they won't turn off their torches...but that's another story for another postcard.)
I stuck more to the traditional postcard form here, highlighting key works in mini alphas. That October Afternoon Rocket Age paper was perfect! And it was a fun picture to take, using the bulb setting on my camera while the Guides waved their torches. When I projected this photo on a screen at Guides last week, it was quite surreal to hear the girls squeal, "Oooh, that's me!". Some of the other girls were a bit non-plussed...
P.S. Off to see Harry Potter tonight. Fabcakes! Have stocked up on Lime Flavour Dorritos especially.
