It was a busy Saturday morning getting college stationery and packing rucksacks ready for Alex and I as we headed off for a Girlguiding Camping Trip.
It was a hectic kind of Ssturday evening putting up tents for 77 Brownies, Guides, Seniors and Leaders from our village at Warwick Castle before the deadline for dinner closed! We made it - just! This was followed by bowmen displays, a jester and a knight and dragon story before a big knights battle finale. Then back to camp for hot chocolate and teeth brushing.
It was a very uncomfortable kind of night on a sleeping mat that wouldn't inflate and stuck in a cold tent but I suffered for my girls!
It was a get up (at 6am) and count heads (I've been counting to 15 all weekend!) to make sure none had escaped from their tent in the night and head off to breakfast kind of morning.
Then it was head to the field for a beautiful bird of prey display (the bald eagle was incredible!) and into the castle for fun in the Princess Tower, a walk round the walls and some well deserved cups of tea for the leaders.
Alex was a star all weekend. Although their as a senior section member and not her young leader voluntary role she got stuck in pitching tents and looking after the girls.
It was a smooth journey home kind of Sunday afternoon with girls returned to their families, not too much lost property and home to a lovely cooked meal. After a bit of catching up with the boys I headed to the sofa and collapsed!
I'm joking in Sian's meme to share my weekend. You could head over and do the same if you like - we'd love to see you!
