Today across the world we celebrate Founder Day. Robert Baden Powell was born on February 22nd 1857. However, previously I have celebrated World Thinking Day – which is the Guiding version of Founders Day after, Robert Baden Powell’s wife, Olave – whom also has the same birthday just in 1889.
I like to spend today thinking about my fellow Scouts and Guides from around the World. Having had the opportunity to attend WSJ2019 I feel honoured to be part of such a giant group of people.
84’s been a busy 🐝 recently, so I’ve taken over the reins again.
84 has told me that if I’m doing a take over I have to blog about something useful. Well I nearly said phnh to that but then I had an idea – I’m going to share with you how I make the perfect cup of tea.
Apologies in advance if I miss a few steps but I’m only a little bear. 🐻
Fill the kettle with water and turn on the kettle.
While waiting for the water to boil, get a mug and place a tea bag in it.
Now here’s the shocker place your desired amount of milk into the mug.
When the water has boiled, pour it into the mug.
Leave the tea to brew for a few minutes
Stir the tea to see how strong it is – check the colour I like mine strong so leave the teabag in for a while.
When the tea is the desired strength remove the teabag
Leave to cool for a short time – nobody likes a burnt tongue. Finally enjoy the perfect cup of tea.
On Wednesday, I was busy creating new craft items such as hair bobbles to sale at a spa evening on the Saturday. On Thursday, I had dance where we did some contact and contemporary improvisation. On Friday, I was busy sewing making some hand sanitiser holders to sale the next day.
On Saturday, I went to a university open day where I was looking at the Forensic Science course. I learnt about the different machines, which can help analyse different samples as well as different machines which can help solve key points in a crime scene. We learnt about how you should enter a crime scene and what evidence should be taken first as well as how to take a fingerprint sample. I saw versions of university accommodation as well. That evening, sewed on buttons before I headed out to fundraiser at a spa event.
On Sunday, I headed to the local Victorian market – it was very pretty and bustling. That afternoon, I headed back home to complete my homework and plan the Beavers meeting which is being run by the young leaders.
Today I have been busy updating my personal development goals and submitting them. I then followed by quickly creating a Pinterest board of Pumpkin carving ideas before I started de-gutting my pumpkin.
With the pumpkin seed I toasted them in order to make toasted cinnamon sugar seeds. These turned out very delicious.
I soon decided to carve my pumpkin as a dinosaur which you can see within the top photo. I personally think it turned out very well.
This evening, I started packing for my reunion camp making sure that I will not forget anything important and most importantly will not get cold – the UK weather has certainly gotten very cold very quickly (soon I guess it’ll be snowing – *touch wood*).
