7th August ’17: Who was a Brownie?

Hello to a new week, folks ❤️🦁🐥🌿👗🎽👾☂️

One of the many things I love about car boot sales is spotting multicoloured piles of pretty vintage #ladybird books. Yesterday’s ‘spot’ included a Brownie Guide book that pinged me back to the time I was in the 30th Fulham pack and made a shoe bag (I know – I’ve never used one either) out of an old yellow tablecloth to get my Thrift badge. And the pure hilarity of our garish floral 70s camp beds spontaneously folding up with us on them at bedtime on Brownie camp. As you can imagine, I wasn’t hugely impressed at having to wear brown (I should have known what was coming: the hint was in the name) but I bravely battled through this aesthetic challenge and had a great time. Do you have any Brownie (or Cub) tales? Any badge triumphs…or fails?…
