My daughter recently joined Rainbows - which is the most junior sector of the Girl Guides Association. In my day this level didn't exist - you joined as a Brownie.
For the last couple of weeks she's been learning and memorising the "Promise" at every opportunity, and last night she, along with 2 other girls, recited it when requested and so now she's the full arch!
She was really chuffed with herself, and I couldn't have been prouder.
I loved my time in Guiding and it seems that history is repeating itself.
And as I am such a hoarder that I still have the certificcate from when I became a Brownie! How sad am I? (My name was spelt wrongly - but this time is was the surname not my Christian name)
