It’s taken me a while to get around to writing this, purely because it’s taken me a while to recover from the weekend.
The theme was based around the world centres and the world guiding badge, we visited Switzerland and grass sledged, painted elephants from India and made masks and had a Mexican piñata.
It was a fantastic weekend, I got my 10 nights away at Maer badge (the place that the cottage is), and the weather was beautiful, however they were awful at sleeping. Awful.
11pm Friday night was lights out and we stop sitting in there. 1am, we went to bed and could hear vague mutterings. 2am, a very angry dusky owl shouted at them for the first time in her life as they were out of the beds screaming with the lights on. 4am, they ran out of loo roll, 5am they wanted to know what the time was, and 6am they wanted to know if they could get dressed. Because these are clearly emergencies worthy of waking us up.
Needless to say the next day we needed coffee and the girls were too tired to stay awake, but there was something satisfying about telling them to play on the playground when all they wanted to do was rest!
Nevertheless, it was a brilliant holiday, and I cannot wait to start planning mine for my holiday licence. We brainstormed some themes on the weekend, but I’m also going to ask the girls. At the moment, I’m in favour of Cinderella theme- where they have to be in bed for midnight or they all turn into pumpkins! What a shame that would be!
So basically the weekend was amazing as usual but I am so tired and I can’t wait for my test holiday!!
