Be Prepared !

Daniel and his Explorer Scout Unit aka The Rhinos have been at a national event this weekend called WINTER CAMP held at scouting HQ ,Gilwell Park near Chingford Essex.
This weekend involves sports , challenges , generally having a good time and making new friends.
What I haven't mentioned is that they were CAMPING , yes camping ,with temperatures reaching -6 saturday night !
In scouting we believe there is no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing !
Well Dan went well prepared and from his texts is having a great time.
They even made the national news
Looking forward to having him home and hearing all about it .

Word for the year

I know i'm a little late and this year is already underway but choosing a word for this year has taken me a little while.
I can hear you thinking WHAT !!
It does make some sense, honest.
This year I want to mentally take a step back and enjoy my life
and really appreciate what I have got
in terms of family, friends, health ,my home ,
my scrapbooking , my scouting ,
I want to embrace all the new challenges that come my way
and most of all
I want to hear myself laugh more often.

Blog :: ScrapaGoGo : Perfect Pair!

Blog :: ScrapaGoGo: "Our girls have really pushed the boat out with January Designs, we love the way Sheena has been getting stuck in with the Hybrid elements and changing the size of them to her requirements. Check out the heart Sheena has enlarged and used entwinned with her photo - Sheena and GoGo January Kit are definately the 'perfect pair' too:)

'When I saw the Riff Raff Pear I just new I wanted to use a photo of my parents, they have been a pair for nearly 45 yrs! I've used 3 of the GoGo Hybrids to help convey their relationship.'"
