292 of 365


Imagine my joy and delight to discover that several of the badges I'd painstakingly sewn onto The Boy's cub uniform could be painstakingly unpicked and painstakingly sewn onto his scout uniform! (Must give The Mother credit here for offering to do this for me, but unfortunately there wasn't time to take her up on her kind offer...)

I found out recently that Asda now do their own version of the Go Ahead biscuits I like. They don't taste quite as good, but they're cheaper! On 19th October I had some of the apple flavour:

I remember Mum sewing my badges onto my brownie and guide uniforms. Congrats to the boy for gaining them and well done with all that sewing.

No, no, Mel, you've misunderstood... Scouts ALWAYS sew on their own badges (honest!).

Love the layouts, you did better than us in our first 10 years of marriage we moved 6 times

It's good that you can transfer some of the badges from cubs to scouts, you couldn't when I was helping many moons ago.

Yummy biscuits will have to look out for them.

ahhhh after our boys bridged and were awarded their tenderfoot it was pinned upside down by their mothers (parents always do the pinning here), the boys were told by the scoutmaster that after they had done a good deed they could turn thier badge and THEY were to sew it on :)
