Such a good day

I know I'm supposed to say how, as a working parent, I was incredibly inconvenienced by the teachers strike yesterday. Indeed, if there are more strikes in the autumn, it will be a real hassle to juggle work and kid/s off school. But this one time?

I had brunch out with a group of lovely ladies including a friend from Germany who was here for just a few days.

I went shopping with daughter to sort out little things we hadn't had time for like changing her pin number to one she can remember and ordering her school uniform for September - because there's a whole new uniform for next school year. Watched The Apprentice with her on iplayer.

And in the evening, our Brownies, Guides and Senior Section went to the local Scout campsite and foraged for firewood, sang songs, played games, cooked sausages, toasted marshmallows and made smores (well, the UK version using chocolate digestives) and jelly smores.

It was quite simply, a lovely, lovely day.

I'm glad it was a nice day.

I LOVE s'mores!!! And so glad that you were able to enjoy the day! Returning the love from The Peanuts Gang (and from Jenna's Journey!) :)

Teacher strike? WOW, we aren't allowed to strike. Glad you got to enjoy your day anyway.
