Tit-less

I thought that you might want to know that my wee brother has let me down.

He did not make any boobs today as he was on a field trip and had forgotten..... He did try to make the cake at the weekend but was sidetracked by an episode of Magnum PI which meant that it burnt to a crisp.

Men.

Otherwise: That's the first two days of teaching over. Woo hoo!

At Brownies tonight we made cardboard pancakes which we planned to play games with, only they ended up far too beautiful and creative (wish I'd taken pictures) so they just took them home. By the time we could start games the Guides had brought some spare pancakes for our kids so they had pancakes with white choc spread and bananas to eat instead of pancake games to play.

We did still play ('fishes' but with pancake toppings instead of fish names and Tag) but I have one older Brownie who is getting bored. It's probably time that she went to Guides but she's not keen.... I'll have to try to persuade her I think as the commissioner (boss brownie) has told me we have 6 girls waiting to come up to Brownies from Rainbows and I'm already oversubscribed in our pack. There's only so much 'help the other girls' that this Brownie can do I imagine, before she quits the organisation!

So if anyone has any ideas for fun activities to suit 7 year olds that you can extend to challenge 9 year olds too - please let me know!

Do you work through the badge book, TC? My daughter (10) is always coming home, having done bits towards a new badge, and it certainly keep her occupied...

Hello...

Bond & Trav - Surprised that you two came back to see the ladylumps.... I'll work on the boy and see if I can persuade him to make them anyway. It was originally for a mock launch of a lads mag (see what you get to do if you study professional writing at Falmouth uni...).

Annelisa - aye we're doing badges. Does your daughter do stuff at home for them? I only have 2 brownies who will do anything at home, which limits the things we can do. Too much to say... post to come!
