40 of 365



On Tuesday nights The Girl goes to Brownies. In my day we wore little brown dresses with yellow neckties (*nostalgic sigh!*); now they wear t-shirts, leggings and hooded tops. Which is possibly just as well, as there is no way I would get The Girl into a dress!

For lunch I had a quick bowl of Grape Nuts - which are neither grape-y or nutty! After all, I have a nut allergy.... If you haven't heard of them before, they're just a kind of cereal consisting of tiny crunchy clusters made from wheat and barley. They stay crunchy in milk and they taste rather good :-)

And are we going to get chest photos of all your family???
Much more practical uniform these days.

I had a dress, but we were allowed to wear leggings when we went on field trips. Maybe we were progressive?

The new uniform looks so much more comfortable than the terrible little polyester dresses we had! My girls never had any interest in scouting. I suppose I should be thankful. ;-)

You can microwave a bowl of Grape Nuts with milk. They soften a bit, not as much as oatmeal but are a warm hearty breakfast with a bit of honey.

We wore brown dresses with white shirts and green neckties for Brownies.

I still have my brownie dress AND my Girl Guide tunic..along with my Guides Handbook!! Both truly Vintage by now!!!

Grape Nuts?...Aren't those supposed to keep you VERY regular?!!! Not a bad thing I might add!!!

Wow, didn't realise the uniform had changed so much! Looks comfortable though.

I was a St John's badger instead of a brownie, but my friend was and used to wear the dress.
