Promise Renewal

Well, yesterday was the last day of school and also the last Brownie meeting before the summer holidays, last night I renewed the promise I made as a Brownie 32 years ago, as at long last I became a fully qualified Assistant Guider. On the last meeting of the summer term we go to a farm for our 'Sausage Sizzle', the farm is owned by a lovely lady who used to be Brown Owl at our Brownies and it was her that presented me with my certificate and who I renewed my Promise to. It was a fab evening and Martin and the kids came along to watch me. After they were gone though, we got down to the very important business of cooking sausages on open fires, its my favourite meeting of the year, anyway, due to not having permission from parents to show pics of the girls, there is only a pic of me making my promise.

Hahaha, I do that too. I used a lovely pink strawberry sample as the middle of a table cloth, I put binding round the outside. I reckon you could probably make cushions like that and sell them on ebay! hehe. In Laura Ashley stores they give out loads of samples, I also get wallpaper samples and use them for my crafts. I thouhgt I was the only one who did that! :-)

Well done you!!! I was a Brownie, Guide and Ranger and loved it. Jamie is in the Cubs now but Matthew refused to go to Beavers cos he'd be meeting new people - something he just doesn't do very well!
Maybe one day Jess will be a Brownie?!
