A gift from Paul...

For getting my Nights away permit (see previous post ) Paul surprised me with a little gift.
Sorry for the poor photo !! This little silver troll bead is 2 cute mice on a piece of cheese.
Odd choice you may think but Paul always tells a story about when we first moved to this house and in the evenings I would see a mouse in our kitchen !! At this point I would point out we live opposite a farm !! Anyway to start with I was mad enough to think we only had ONE mouse,how wrong could i be !!We ended up getting proffessional help to sort out the problem.
So this is why he chose this bead.

Beaver Sleepover

As you probably already know I am a Beaver Scout leader.Eventhough my own children have moved on to other sections of the Movement ,I have stayed with the Beavers.This age group (6-8 yrs) are so much fun and so eager to learn that it makes our meetings really enjoyable.

Well last weekend I organised a Sleepover for the Beavers at our local Scout campsite, which was held in a beautiful centrally heated log cabin ajoining a small field and surrounded by woodland.For some this was their first expirence of being away from home overnight.I great team of Leaders and friends assissted me to make this very special for all taking part.
We had a packed programme including tracking by day and by night ,rocket launching ,archery ,firework iced biscuits ,campfire....

We all had an amazing weekend and i was totally thrilled when my assessor visited us and granted me my indoor permit ,to enable me to take Beavers on sleepovers in the future as the Permit Holder.

what a weekend...

Well I'm just about getting over the tiredness after the most fantastic weekend away at Scrapagogo's Gogo getaway, based at the Theobalds Park Hotel in Cheshunt.

I was there in a dual role and had an absolute blast.

It was great to catch up with the rest of the DT and I took some inspirational classes.
I will blog them over the coming week or so.

I had great crop table mates and laughed so much my sides hurt so thanx guys for your great company, there's nothing better than like minded people.

Jackie, my weekend would not have been complete without you to share it all with , x.

One issue on the way home was a flat tire on the M1,with a long wait on the hard shoulder for an AA man which added 2 hours to our journey but Jackie & I coped and eventually warmed back up !!

Ribbon Mad

I was very honoured to be Ribbon Mad's guest designer for their november kit.

The ribbons in Novembers kit are all different shades of blue which were so easy to use and my favourite colour too.
