I can't remember how old I was but I was probably around grade 3 or 4 and the leader of the local Brownie group lived (and still does) across from our house. Some how I ended up joining the brownies. I remember going to get the special uniform and the meetings around a large toadstool. I remember feeling so special belonging to this group. It is hard to explain.
The beret has always been stashed in a drawer and recently at mum's I found my old badge, if I remember correctly it was worn on the tie.
The beret is a little moth eaten but I just can't chuck it out. I think I was a Tintookie? Do any of you remember these?
I was so excited to find the badge again. A little piece of the past.
Hope you are all having a great week so far.
