Why am I a Guider?

>>  Saturday, February 22, 2020

I'm not a Guider for the easy hours, the power, the prestige.

I am a Guider because I want the world for our girls, a world they can share and help to shape, a world of love and laughter.

I want them to feel the beauty of that world.

I want them to finish everything they start and to do it well.

I want to give opportunities for them to become women who will have strength of character and compassion for others.

I want them to be the best they can be and to achieve their goals in life.

In giving myself and my time I hope for a better world, through them.


Mud and Money

>>  Friday, February 14, 2020

 I mentioned in my last post about the orange leggings on the King's Road.  In the shop I'd said to HWMBO that I couldn't understand how people did full length trousers because of how dirty and spoilt they'd get.

At least capris mean my lower legs (which have washed well for as many years as I can remember) take a large part of the dirt strain.
 And the next day I set out (although not purposely) and proved the point.
 The fields were devoid of any mud free path.
 My shoes (which I do spend a lot of money on because their quality really matters) disappeared into the ground colour.
 But it was worth it.  Not a soul around but me, a heron and a few surprised sheep.
 There were ice water occasions to wash some mud off.
  Unavoidable paddles.
 Splashes through puddles.
 The final result.

And that is why I can't have nice things!!!
But the winter tan is going great,  thanks for asking.
