Girl Guiding Thinking Day

Today started off at 5am, a quick cup of tea and then I headed off into the dark for a 3 mile walk to one of my favourite pieces of coast in the world. Today is Thinking Day in Girlguiding (I think Scouts call it Founders Day) and it is the day in which GirlGuides all around the world think of their sister guides all over the place. It also celebrates the birthdays of the founders of GirlGuiding and Scouting; Lord and Lady Baden Powell. 



So that is how I found myself to be standing at the top of a cliff with lots of other members of GirlGuiding UK (young and old!!) watching the sunrise on Thinking Day 2014. We were so lucky with the weather, and although there was low cloud just on the horizon, it made a spectacular sunrise. 

It also made me think, this is my 13th Thinking Day as a member of Girlguiding and I will be celebrating 14 years since making my promise as a little 8 year old later this year.For laughs I am treating you to a picture of me those 14 years ago about to do the deed. 


Have you ever been in GirlGuiding or Scouting?
Happy Thinking Day!!

  1. Aww, how sweet! I remember Rainbows and Brownies and that awful Brownie Uniform - mine was the same and I still have my sash with all the badges on, I was the leader of elves I think? My sash was full of badges!

    I did go to guides a bit but stopped after a while. It was a different church than the one we went to Brownies and I just didn't fit in at all!

    Glad you had fun!
