Really? It's been a month?

I kept meaning to blog, and then I would not get round to it...and here we are. So, a quick recap of the last month:
  • The girls made a beautiful quilt, each designed a square and we tied them together, it's around the theme of Olympics, and 2012, and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, and whatever else the girls wanted to put on, including a lot of horses!
  • My daughter, her friend who is a big sister of a current Brownie, a former Brownie and the big brother of that former Brownie, all age 13 and 12, led the Brownies in a taekwondo session. They did a brilliant job, very patient, and I was proud of all four of them.
  • We made promise torches - Olympic torches with the Brownie promise added as flames, they look fab.
  • And we just had a Diamond Jubilee party, jointly with our Guide unit. Lots of fun and facepainting!
Been a busy month at Brownies as you can see, and also at home - I got a new job at the beginning of the month and have been working my notice at my current job. I finished today *sniffle* and will start the new job after the half term week. My niece was also born, so all in all, can you see why I haven't been here? :-)

Now bring on the half term week and the bank holidays!

Today I will mostly be...voting

If you are in the UK, most councils are up for election today. My son's school is closed as it is used as a polling station. That means no Brownies either. So, if you have one, use your vote - those Suffragettes who fought hard to ensure women would get the vote deserve to have their legacy supported and remembered. Even their win was partial - women had to be over 30, married and have a husband who had the right to vote. It wasn't till 1928 that women got the vote on the same terms as men - ie over 21. Now we can all vote from 18 - so use it!
