Lark and I took 11 Guides to the cinema for our end of term trip. We had managed to earn enough money through easyfundrasing to enable us to fund the trip on a Tuesday night, since it’s crazy Tuesday and only £3 each.
Last year, every one of our Guides came to this end of term outing but this year we had only half. I think I can contribute that to the choice of movie this year. Last year we went to see Pitch Perfect 2 and it was brilliant, however this year, we had the choice between, Alice Through The Looking Glass or Ninja Turtles 2, we settled on Alice.
The Guides were pretty good actually, a bit of chatting and giggling throughout the movie but nothing major. They seemed to join it and ate an alarming amount of sweets.
Afterwards I stood outside waiting for them all to be picked up. I had asked the parents to pick them up at 8.30pm. We got out of the movie at 8.15pm and all of the Guides text their parents, but I didn’t mind waiting until 8.30pm of course. However, one mother kind of took this to an extreme and didn’t turn up until 8.50pm!!! I was rather annoyed.
Next weekend is camp, I’m a bit nervous since I’m now going as the only leader, I’m hoping to get there early and have my tent up before the Guides arrive. That way I can concentrate on them and helping get their tents up.
