My Scout troop ...

... have been brilliant.  Our meetings are held on a Friday night and last Friday was Children in Need night.  We try to do something to support this fantastic night each year.  This year the Troop did a sponsored skip.   They were timed for 1 minute and the number of skips recorded.   I think they all thought that 1 minute was far too short a time and would be dead easy.  I wish I'd had my camera handy to take photos of the faces at the end of a minute!!!  I think I must be evil :)) 

They all took part with great enthusiasm, cheering each other on - I'm so proud of them all.  Some of my Troop have never skipped before and found it a real challenge and learnt a new skill.  I think there are others in the Troop who are secret skipping champions!!  It was a great evening.

And I've been busy with other Scouting stuff this weekend - hence no cards on here!! ;(

I am attending a two day First Aid course (I was always the office First Aider).  It's a super course and I'm finding that you don't really forget this stuff, but it's good to practise.  Today is the second day and I should have my certificate this afternoon, so if anyone does have an accident I'm officially able to sort it out. 

Anyway, I'll be back to making some cards tomorrow.  I still have lots to make for my Christmas collection, and I also want to make a few small CAS cards for the school fair on Thursday - fund raising for Scouts!!

I hope everyone has a good day.  I'll be back tomorrow.

Glad it went well. The work that is done with Scouts is invaluable & you cannot even begin to fathom the impact/influence on those young lives.

1 minute sounds interminable to me nowadays! Well done Scouts.
Hopefully you have your certificate by now :o)
