Time flies when you are having fun!

Goodness where has the time gone! Easter was yesterday.... wasn't it? I have been busy cross stitching for a swap with a fellow guider, it is to commemorate the centenary/100 years of Girlguiding and she is making a quilt of squares which 100 of us have decorated. Em has been busy in food tech creating salads this one was made using cheezley, continental lettuce, yellow pepper, cherry tomatoes, apricots and cashew nuts dressed with a mix of Balsamic vinegar and olive oil. It was delicious and disappeared very quickly.
Last weekend - 1st May was a holiday on the Monday, so the Guides, Rangers, Scouts and Explorers were taking part in a joint camp at the local National Trust House - Petworth Park.
The Saturday was lovely bright, dry and occasionally sunny with lots of activities to do. Zorbing, Kayaking, rafting, zipwire and craft activities. on the Sunday it poured with rain but there was stillplenty to do; rock climbing, abseiling, zip wire, rafting, Kayaking, drumming, glass engraving, sweet making, candle making, decorating pencil cases with fabric pens, pyrography and Radio shack. The girls had a wonderful time and went home tired and happy on the Monday.
At the moment I am recovering from a nasty throat infection which left me without a voice yesterday. :-)
Hope you have a good week Jane x

Hi Caroline--Yes, I can see that your mind and thoughts have been elsewhere, mostly in girlguiding. Love that shot of Em climbing the rock wall!

What fun! Girl Scouting (in the US) has always been a large part of my life, and of The Daughter's.

Our weekend was wonderful. The Son graduated, my Dad was in town, The Daughter joined us, and it was an all-around lovely time. It was chilly and VERY windy-- but sunny and bright.

The salad looks delicious, even if I don't know what 'cheezley' is.
hope you are feeling better soon.

Hi love the x-stitch design- did you design it? can anyone use it?
might try and get some of the Guides to try parts of it if ok. Dove
