I need to:

Complete a couple of job applications for Friday.

Complete an application for laptops for Brownies.

Sort out picnic lunches for 10. Stupid - should have just said bring a packed lunch. It's coz I don't have kids that I didn't realise how normal that would be for parents.



do a gig

I felt like there was more than this - but now I write it down it seems very manageable. Time to get cracking.

OK - health. I STILL have a cold and at the moment it's affecting my trumpet playing - note production particularly. My range is fine but quiet scary entries are a no go. Would be ok except it's exactly what I have to do at the moment.

Brownies - they had loads of fun. That's it now til September except for a trip a week on Sat.

Fun - avoiding it actually to try to shift this bloody cold.

Summer Olympics

Tomorrow night we're having a Summer Olympics at Brownies. I actually think this would be something fun to do with other units, but we're going solo. It's our last night for Summer.

The plan:

After they all arrive & pay subs we will hold an opening ceremony - all the sixes (teams) will march around the hall and out to the grass with a flag bearer for each six. We will light the ceremonial torch (tea-light in glass) and then the Olympics can begin.

We have 5 events.
Discus (frisbee)
Shotput (beanbags)
Shooting (water pistols into plastic hoops held by leaders... they're gonna love that one)

We will allocate points throughout with winners for each event as well. We will then hold our medal-giving and closing ceremony with juice and biscuits before home time with end of term letters.

This is probably the most organised I've been all year. Hopefully I'll remember how nice it feels to know exactly what's meant to be going on and we'll stick to the routine next year!
