Firstly for the last couple of months I have been trying to organise a surprise party for Heather, the smiling lady in the photo above. She is the Cub leader at the group I help out with. This year she was honored by receiving the Silver Wolf Award which is the highest award that a leader in the Scout Association can hold. Heather has been working with the association since Baden Powell was a boy or so it feels like and her enthusiasm never fails. She is a star and the award was well deserved. Drew, the gentleman in the picture is our District Chairman and he too was awarded the Silver Wolf, a few years ago now though.
So with a good bit of help from parents of my Cubs and the Community Council and the Active Support Unit we did manage to give Heather quite a bit of a surprise judging by the look on her face when she was escorted in by three of our Cubs. I really hope she enjoyed the party.
Other than that it has been a slog of a week. It’s been kiln disaster after kiln disaster and mess after mess and feeling utterly useless again. Yes I know the plate with the birds is lovely – apart from the fact that I stupidly stuck it to the kiln shelf. What a fool. This blog post from Handmade Lives could not have come at a more appropriate time. She’s a genious is the lady that writes these posts, if you don’t know them then have a read.
So tomorrow will be a new day, new week, onwards and upwards!
