So I haven't done much in the way of scrappy things of late. I don't know where the time goes! Or, more accurately, I know exactly where it goes, but there isn't enough of it. But I have made this page which will also be joining the ranks of the Guiding pages. It tells of my first camp as a leader.
I was so excited to go on my first camp as a Guider. Actually, I got lost on the way, but otherwise, it was perfect. The sun was out, we had the whole of Cherry's camping site to ourselves, the girls were constantly laughing....
Except in the middle of the night when they complained about the Australian red ants in their tents. This being obvs not true. It was moths outside their tents that were attracted to the light their torches made. We had these massive tents that were too heavy for the Guides to put up so we "helped". ie. did it for them. Each tent had a central area big enough to stand up in and a little pod each side that would sleep four girls. Although on the Saturday morning, we found all 8 girls from one tent curled up together in one pod. They said they were cold, which they might have been, but the masses of sweets surrounding them told a different story. But as we all know, Guiding, and especially camp, is about having as much food as you possibly can and then making sure any activities in between food involve eating in some way, or use up enough energy to facilitate more eating. It's basically the rules.
P.S. Speaking of really hard work, had a lovely exciting big promotion at work! But that means lots more to do. However, I get my own office to do it in. Thinking of turning it into a craft room as technically, no one has forbidden me to do this. I think they're just assuming I won't.
P.P.S. I'll show them!
