The Scouting motto is Be Prepared and after 20 years as a Cub Scout Leader I still like to be ready for anything so when I spotted this in a charity shop it was bought straight away ready for next December's Advent blog posts!
Now I just have to remember this in 11 months time - can someone remind me please!
And the mention of carols reminds me that sometime this morning I must walk around to the United Reformed Church to see if this evenings carol service is on or maybe there will be a big CANCELLED stuck on the poster. I really hope not.
I so enjoyed the final of Strictly Come Dancing last night - some sparkle and happiness among all the news of doom and gloom.
