Happy Christmas Eve everyone (or as my friend is calling it Boxing day Eve Eve!).
Today I have been busy preparing for Christmas tomorrow by wrapping my presents. Sis84 and I have also put out our stockings as well as leaving Santa a mince pie, carrot for the Reindeers as well as a drink.
Tomorrow is Christmas day and I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! Enjoy time with your family and loved ones!
For now #BLOGMAS is over for 2019 but it will continue next year (hopefully). However, I ought to be heading to bed as I’ve heard Santa is in Germany!
So tomorrow is Christmas Eve and I don’t quite know how to say it but I’m not feeling very festive. However, this morning, Sis84 and Mum84 joined me and we went out for a cooked breakfast. At breakfast, we overheard someone discussing how there husband had counted out 900 sprouts and exclaimed how that seemed like quite a lot before she replied saying grams, 900 grams of sprouts. This was quite funny to say the least.
I also don’t feel Christmasy even though on Friday, I broke up for Christmas at school and there was the yearly houses got talent, staff and sixth form entertainment as well as the Christmas assembly. I also sang the Boars head in front of the whole school which was very scary.
Finally, over the weekend I have been out bag packing in Waitrose, wearing my Christmas necker as a Bandana.
So Santa please tell me, how has Christmas crept up again?
This weekend, I was bag packing in Waitrose in my county and I am going to share a few stories people told me throughout my bag packing sessions. I was bag packing to raise funds to go on the European Jamboree this summer.
My first story is this gentleman told me about his great grandfather who used to own Brownsea Island. He explained that Robert Baden Powell asked if he was able to host what today is know as the first Scout camp ever. The great grandfather said of course however as long as his grandchildren (who were girls) were allowed to attend. So, he now likes to be known that these girls were some of the first unofficial boy Scouts.
Another story is another gentleman’s son is friends with Bear Grylls’s son. So one Christmas, he got a Christmas card from Bear Grylls himself.
Shh Howdy 84’s asleep ready for a busy weekend ahead of her. Today I’m with Sis84 doing a Q and A.
Lets start with some simple questions:
What section of Scouting are you in? I’m a Scout who goes to 84’s old Scout group.
What it like having 84 always going off fundraising every weekend? You would think it is great, but actually I’m usually dragged along with her to all the events she does.
Rumour has it you like to watch Christmas movies, which one would you recommend to all my fans? I do love all Christmas movies and it would be so hard to pick just one. Some of my favorites are Elf, The Grinch and The Christmas Prince Trilogy.
Blue what is your favourite Christmas movie?
Well Sis84, I have always loved the Home Alone movies, Kevin gets up to so much fun! But I digress we need to get on with this interview.
Just out of curiosity how well do you get on with 84? We go together like chalk and cheese.
We have time for one last question so, What’s it like having a world renowned blogger as a sister? Honestly, I’m not very sure as I don’t have a sister who is a good blogger. Don’t tell 84 but I think she’s kind of terrible.
Today was another one of my friends birthdays so happy birthday to her! We also got given hot chocolate at break which was pretty nice (none of the watery hot chocolate)!
Also today at Beavers was a Christmas themed night. We decorated foam Christmas trees, played snowball egg and spoon races as well as coloured in Christmas cards. I also created a mosaic art.
I then went to a young leader meeting in the evening where I finished my modules and then we played some Christmas games. We played musical chairs, blind man’s bluff as well as table football. We got given lots of sweets for winning games and there were only 3 of us. It was a very good evening.
Today I got yet another badge to sew onto my never decreasing pile of badges.
You might have seen from my instagram that I went to see Frozen II at the cinema this morning. I joined Mum84 and her Rainbows for Elsa’s Enchanted Movie Screening.
It was a great film and I’m not going to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it.
A big shout out to Girlguiding who arranged the special screening and especially to a neighbouring division’s Commissioner for arranging a local screening for us.
Everyone who attended our screening received an Elsa’s Enchanted Movie Badge.
Today is the day of another General election for the UK with it being the third one held within 5 year. At my school, it was the talk of the day and we have had a mini polling station to find out the Political opinions within the school.
At lunch, I voted in the hall where we got given mini polling cards. As the card did not tell us how to fill in the box, I put a cat in my box. The results were then in by the end of the day and concluded with; Labour (220), Conservitives (126) and Green Party (94).
A couple of week ago, the candidates for our area came in for a mini debate. We had someone from Labour, Conservatives and Green party all come to answer our years questions and unfortunately the Liberal Democrats candidate was unable to come. It was a really great debate and we were able to hear all about the plans each candidate wanted for our area. I wanted to ask about whether if the candidates were unable to vote for there own party who would they vote for and why. However, I was unable to ask my question due to us running out of time. The Labour and Conservative candidates were both getting pretty argumentative but overall, everyone was fairly relaxed.
I am very excited to see the results tommorrow due to this election be very important.
