We went to Scouts family camp last weekend. It was… interesting. Of course, it wasn’t actually camping as we stayed in bunk house (I don’t think I’m really ready for Scouts camping camping). It rained all weekend, but we still managed to do Scouty things like canoeing and bonfires. There were skits and songs and it was all very Kumbaya. I was actually quite disappointed when nobody actually sang Kumbaya.
Max will soon be moving up from Cubs to Scouts and has just been awarded his Gold Boomerang. I don’t quite know what that means either, but it’s good. He’s also one bush walk away from securing his Grey Wolf, which is apparently the highest Cub honour you can get. I should really have written that Bart is one bush walk away from securing Max his Grey Wolf. Max is not exactly self-motivated to achieve greatness…
Do wish them luck for the walk on Sunday. Max is in charge of the whole thing himself, including organising supplies for six Cubs, deciding the route and being responsible for directions. Oh yes! I half expect to never see them again.
Reading – Ignore Everybody: and 39 other keys to creativity by Hugh MacLeod. It’s making me spark.
Writing – my 7 favourite book series to read aloud with the kids.
Making – Rainbow clean mud – clean mud is a thing!
Wishing – that this kind of yumminess didn’t make us fat.
Loving – the fantastic reaction the #screenfreedom movement is generating. Loving it, loving it, loving it.
Wondering – how my mean budget is going to survive the Easter Show Me The Money on Sunday!!!
This week’s guest hostie is the fabulous Amanda from Cooker and a Looker. She’s absolutely both of those things (she will be embarrassed that I said that) but she’s also funny, warm and the right kind of joyfully silly. If it’s food you’re after, don’t miss her Pink Lemonade Scones, Lemon Meringue Cake (wha!?!) or her free eCookbook (named Flossie… which sounds a bit rude if you’re my Grandma). Amanda is a total love, so pop on over and say hello!

They made it home! I think he’s done it… will let you know!
