When I was younger, I was a Girl Guide. Prior to that I was a Brownie. Quite honestly, I liked the uniform – the belt was a particular bonus – but the rest wasn’t a lot of fun most of the time. I did however, like singing the English words to Taps at the end of the session.
Day is done, gone the sun, from the sea
From the hills, from the sky, all is well
Safely rest, God is nigh.
It was particularly affecting when we were camping and we’d sing it around the campfire and then crawl into our sleeping bags to do battle with various bugs, rain and other guides – the ground sheets were not fitted you see, so anything could simply crawl inside through the course of the night. I think my Guide troop got their tents in the dark ages.
I was also frustrated by my lack of promotion prospects. I only made seconder in my six and the sixer was a right idiot. I took this as a personal slight, of course, but Brown Owl had almost certainly heard about me piercing my ear with my Promise Badge in the toilet and I think this coloured her judgement of how I might influence the other guides.
She was quite right, my heart wasn’t in Girl Guiding, unless we sang Taps and then my heart was all that was in it. I was a bit of a dreamer.

This is my last review of Powder Pack for Catwa this month (June) and the fifth of the video blogs I’ve done about them. Each video has featured three items from the pack and each has also contained a skin. This is amazing value for the 1500l$ pre-pay cost or the 3000l$ after issue. Do watch the vid and see what I’m finishing off with today.
I love the colour and texture of the Linda top by Spirit that I’m wearing in these pictures and in the dancing video below, however, it does move a little strangely when I dance. It’s not a new release, but rather a top I got a while ago – at one of the events, I forget which – but of course, with everything you buy, do try it on first and have a dance in the shop 😀
RealEvil have released this gorgeous jewellery set named Areah for Shiny Shabby, which is on til the 15th July. It comprises a necklace, earrings and a bracelet for each arm and you benefit from a HUD with five metal choices and various stone colour choices too.
Here’s some more pics, including a ‘well lit, no shit’ shot…
And finally, here is the ‘jigging for the rigging’ video.
