I’ve written before about having been a Girl Guide and maybe mentioned that The Jellicle thinks they’re some kind of secret cult organisation. Today is Thinking Day, which is the day celebrated as a sort of founding day by most Guides and Brownies and Scouts. The weirdness that is having the same birthday as your spouse will probably always end up in something happening but I reckon having several million people involved in a youth organisation thinking about you is a pretty good outcome.
Though I miss being more directly involved in Guiding I am far too tired to go back to being a Leader. My warrant has lapsed and the idea of keeping up with twenty-odd girls between ten and sixteen just feels exhausting. Maybe at some point I can get back into it.
