My supervisor has been on holiday for the last couple of weeks, so I have been busy. There isn't much support from the rest of the "team", so I just have to get on with it.
I found out last week that the super was on leave for three rather than just two weeks last Thursday and today was told that he also has the first three days of the following week off. It could all get a bit intense!
The season has started, and my beloved Gunners are to be frank being a little inept. Still no defeats as yet (only 3 games played), so it is all good.
Cubs has been in Summer recess for about three weeks now. Since the break started we have had a Scouters Meeting (pub), a Pack Programme Meeting (another pub) and an evening of housekeeping at the Scout Hut to put kit back where it should be.
The first weekend in September means the annual Gilwell Reunion - three leaders and Akela's wife will be having a very sociable weekend setting the world to rights, checking on different ideas for Scouting Activities and Programme Ideas and enjoying a glass or two.
I am due to be cooking at a County Beaver and Cub Scout Training Course on the 13 September. It is good to give a bit back.
Had a great day out in Eastbourne with my pal, Charlotte. A nice catch up after meeting at the Hop Farm Festival in July.
A little sadly (for me any way), Charlotte is moving back to the north of England to work in Kendal. Good luck with that, my dear... but I am sure we will keep in touch.
Pleased to say that a couple of gigs are on the near and far horizon.

And off in the distance, The Unthanks are playing at the Roundhouse on March 7 2015.
