Easter Holidays and Happy Easter wishes

Hoorah! the holidays have begun, so we are busy with the family but looking forward to the lazy mornings. I have been busy with Guides/Rangers and working towards a camp holiday in May. Em has been busy trying out recipes and made a Thai Curry rice with tofu. Without the tofu it was a lovely tasty dish :-) As we will be busy for the next few days I'll wish you Happy Easter and hopefully get back to blogging during the holidays. Jane

Last Wednesday Em did her star turn at Guides in the talent show, and performed her own composition "Rocking the Souls" on her electric Guitar. It sounded great, the other girls also took their star turn and performed skipping rhythms, Dance, Poetry reading, Singing, Jokes and finally the senior guides sang "on top of Spaghetti" to the Tune of "On Top of Old Smokey" It was a brilliant evening which we all enjoyed.
On Monday this week the English department went to see the Poetry Show which was a performance for GCSE students travelling around the local theatres. It was a presentation of the poems from the AQA Anthology and Heaney & Clarke or Duffy & Armitage. The show appealed to the students and had quite a bit of humour in it, certainly it was worth every penny of the ticket price.
My present knitting project is a Ranger Doll for Em as we are hoping to start the new Unit after Easter. The pattern is Jean Greenhowe's Mascot Doll booklet - Guide which I adapt with colours to fit the doll I'm making. Jane x
