Who doesn’t love camping.

When I was a child we would go camping all the time. It was a cheap and cheerful holiday and although we all had a good time, part of me was glad when Matilda arrived and camping became impractical.

Baking time.

I love to bake. I love baking goodies such as cakes and biscuits. I am not very good at it, my bakes are normally simpler recipes and don’t always look as pretty as I hoped but they are always edible and normally taste good. 

This week I decided to make some cupcakes. I liked the idea of attempting a like with layers of different colours. Matilda was excited about helping me and I thought why not?

What a View

During my trip to London last week, me and my mum visited the viewing platform of the Shard. This was not my first time up the Shard but this time the weather was so much better then my last visit.

My Birthday Meal at Gordon Ramsay’s cafe

This week I celebrated my birthday. It wasn’t a significant one so I didn’t have any big plans until mum reminded me that for Christmas she had brought me a Red Letter Day Voucher for day out in London and my birthday was the perfect opportunity to use it.

I have had my cut!

For the last few years I have been growing out my hair. I loved having long hair and was reluctant to cut it however this week it has all come off.

Thank you ASDA

My Brownie group is not run for profit. We set the cost of subs based on our outgoings such as hire of the hall, cost of badges and cost of supplies. We try to go for cheaper versions of crafts using Poundland goods or buying bits when we see them on offer. In the 15 years since I was a Brownie the weekly cost has gone up by only 50p (although we may need to increase the subs in September).
