Beavers - Hobby Badge

Beaver Scouts - Hobby Badge

Last week the Beavers started up again after the Summer Break and Jack couldn't wait to get back. That Scout Hut is the craziest and loudest place on Earth on the first day back! I swear my ears were ringing for about an hour after I dropped him off! But it was a lot calmer at the end of the meet when I went to collect him again.

There are some big things coming soon with Beavers, the most exciting being the Camp this weekend. His friend Rory is going too this time and he simply cannot wait. It has become THE most important and talked about thing all week.

They were also asked to bring something to the meeting this week. They could try to get their Hobby Badge by bringing in an example of a hobby which they could talk about and demonstrate. Well, Jack has a lot of things he likes like his Jujitsu, cooking, DS and Wii U games and so on. He chose to take in his Lego Minifigures collection. He took his Simpsons Lego Minifigures, and a selection of his own custom Minifigures and talked about how he liked to collect special Minifigures and create his own people which he then used to play games. I leant him my display case to take his chosen figures in.

He has achieved the badge, but they didn't have enough, or had misplaced them hee hee, so he will get it another week, but he was very pleased to have been able to take part especially since he hasn't been Invested yet. That's happening in a couple of weeks or so.

But first... it's Camp this weekend, and the swimming gala next Monday. Exciting times for boys (and their mums)!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club. Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue. As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too. When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum.
