The weather may be telling us otherwise but it is Spring and it is Easter. The bright pink and fresh apple green of the Niamh bow just seems to say "Happy Spring!"

"Girls in the Lead" is the theme of Girl Guiding UK. This is our little Rainbow proudly displaying her badge for completing her time as a Rainbow and now it is off to Brownies. More friends, adventures and girls taking the lead in a variety of activities, projects and most importantly - FUN!

The girls of Beaconsfield currently meet in a very drafty and damp "Guide Hut" but they are well on their way to raising funds to build their new "Headquarters" and Miss Gracie is keen to help. We have designed head bands and pony elastics to match both the Rainbow and Brownie uniforms and £1 from each will be donated to the building fund.

Spot the Hair Bows

Sometimes she makes her bed without being asked and today was a particularly good effort! Her well coordinated hair bow wearing friends made me smile. How many hair bows can you spot? The first correct answer emailed to will win a hair bow. Be sure and include your post address on the email.

The Matilda Bow

A name can conjure up an image and Matilda is always a happy one for me. She is cute and giggly, a girl with tree climbing talent but not too much of a tomboy to forgo a bow in her hair. Roald Dahl's Matilda is my kind of girl and this is the bow I would pop in her hair. Red because pink just wouldn't be her style, grosgrain ribbon so the mud would wash off and a pinch clip so she could "do it myself".
