It's all so quiet!

I got home from my night and day on the Brownie Pack Holiday last night feeling like I had done an international flight after a spot of marathon running!  Absolutely exhausted and loving the silence.  Excited son and husband were at least 700 decibels quieter!

The weather was kind, the 17 girls were generally fun to be with, and I got to play with fabric in the form or making Elmers!  There was very little sleep for anyone, but I managed to get my hexie rows stitched together at about 11pm and drank my way through about 12 tiny cups of tea.  I left just as the tie-dying was getting rinsed and the Tuck Shop Haribo was wearing off.

It was fun though, although today, getting Cub Camp gear ready, sewing on a few more blanket badges, relaxing in the sun for a bit, then watching The Hobbit and taking it easy with dear son, was the perfect antidote!

Tomorrow the girls will come home, the washing will pile up and the squabbling will return, but for now I am happy with the comfortable silence, and a really big mug of tea x


  1. Sounds like you had a not-completely-horrific time, phew!

  2. Do I miss those days? Hmmm, not much!!!

  3. Enjoy a rest I think you deserve it!

  4. It sounds like it was pretty fun and then a nice quiet day after.

  5. I'm impressed that you managed to get some sewing in on a pack holiday! Well done for taking part. Hope you are still enjoying the relative silence!
