I've been prepping for the new term in January, there's a lot happening here from the end of the first week of January so I am taking advantage of some downtime now.

So far:
*28 term diaries printed - we consulted the girls and will be doing the Big Brownie Birthday Challenge using their ideas, and we like to let parents know roughly what we will be doing each evening.
*43 permission forms - for our district Big Brownie Birthday event and for our county Thinking Day event, we already know who's going just need to get those forms.
*lots of bits and pieces - an attendance sheet, etc

Still to print: 400 sheets to go through local doors about a special project we want to involve former Brownies in! I think I can reduce the text down so I only need to print 134 but still need to work out the best way to do that without using all my printer ink! More info to follow, as ever, after we've done it, in order to protect my girls.

Christmas cards

I have not succeeded in writing Christmas cards this year. Not for my family, my friends, my Guiding friends my neighbours, or my colleagues. 

With a wide variety of non-standard things happening in November and December (that can't be mentioned publically, nothing awful but involving people who don't like to be mentioned online), writing cards never made it to the top of the list.

And now, on December 20th, I'm giving myself permission to say that ship has sailed and those that I love know I love them already.

Try it, it's liberating!

Party planning, planning, party and pause...

Our Christmas party went very well, the Rainbows, Brownies and Guides all partied together and seemed to have a great time.

The party was organised by our Brownie Helper, a Guide from our sister unit and she did a fantastic job.

We're planning next term in a couple of days time, using the suggestions from the Brownies that we gathered a fortnight ago. Then all that's left is a party for the Guiders and we're all done till January!

Have a great Christmas!
