Scouts St.George's Day Parade

Our Scout group isn't linked to a church, so we don't get to do the various parades that I remember doing years and years ago as a Brownie, and I admit I am a bit sad about that. I remember feeling pride in being part of a parade, wearing full uniform and carrying our group's flag (although I never got to carry it myself).

So when we got a letter on Monday about the St. George's Day Parade today I was thrilled! Obviously St. George's Day itself has been and gone on Thursday but this is the nearest Sunday so it was all done for today.

The whole of the Lonsdale District met up by the Town Hall in Morecambe and then marched to The Winter Gardens, where some of the older Scouts / Leaders had organised a show explaining the story of St. George (with volunteers from the audience and much pantomime style fun) and why St. George is so important to the Scouting movement... He is the Patron Saint of Scouting! News to me! It was loads of fun, it was just a shame there seemed to be a problem with the sound system because there were chunks of it which those of us stood at the back (parents etc) miss completely.

After the show we trooped down the prom a little way to the area by the Midland Hotel where there where loads of activities laid on for the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers, and the general public! Everything from sitting in canoes and trying rowing machines, to crawling to fake caves and potholes, to wresting in padded suits. It was fab! Jack and his buddy Luke loved the caves and wrestling best!

Miles better than my church parades with the Brownies!

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 one of thos…

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. We got 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
