Thought I would announce some exciting news. After taken little over a year off. I’ve decided to go back into Guiding. After making a joint decision to close the unit in Guisborough with my mum and another leader. I took the time off away from running a brownie pack. If your a fellow guider you will know that it’s not just 90mins. You have to plan meetings week in advance, source out material, come up with new ideas (best bit!) and then actually run the meeting. This means keeping 20+ girls entertained for 90mins. Dealing with parents both angry and happy. Writing letters, keeping budgets and committing to other events and meetings.
I’ve written an email, contacted a lady (thanks to Sarah!) and said I was available to come help. I’ve had a response and agreed to meet them. I’m honestly excited about the prospect of doing it and getting back into it. Although running a brownie meeting is like a full time job. The benefits of seeing the girls develop through the years. Getting to know them. Having a laugh and experiences you can have with them. Makes me realise how much I’ve missed it. So there’s my new exciting news……Now where’s my uniform?!?!
