I've been home about 30 mins. Need to tidy up and plan Guides for Monday then I can sit, though I'm surprisingly untired.

Thank you to the organisers and the catering team for another great weekend

I'm home. Brilliant weekend and brilliant food.

Will try and find people on facebook, but if you want to find me search using my maiden name Kathryn Ankin. Married name Robinson is much too common :)

Got back about 30 minutes ago, stuff in washing machine already (but the rest needs to be unpacked). OH and DD were waiting for me and unloaded the car, made me a cuppa with a nice choccy muffin. DD has already asked if I have got her anything (the packed of prawn cocktail crisps was obviously not enough!). House is remarkable tidy.

The road back down was much quieter than I expected, including the Dartford crossing, so got home a lot quicker than I thought. Thanks again to all the organisers and the catering team (Dolly, OH wants to know why I have a packet of ham). It was a fab weekend, met up with old friends, made new friends, laughed a lot, rediscovered the pleasures of alcohol (watch out next time).

I shall treasure my award, while hating you all forever for it (can you understand this post - does it need translated?)

I can be found on fb but apparently there are a lot of people with the same name (how? why?) so best to find me via the guiders.co.uk fb page where it lists our usernames and real names.

I've been home for a while now, thanks to Lette for the lift home and I hope KB isn't too sore for long!

I've just woken up after dozing off on the sofa.

If you want to find me then I'm on FB - I'm on the Guiders and also the 1st Facebook pages...

I got home a couple of hours ago (we had a debrief on the way back) and am now collapsed on the sofa.

Thanks to you all for your help and understanding. Hope you all had fun! And thanks for the lovely gifts as well!

Thanks everyone for a great weekend!
I've been home for a bit and went for a nap - now having a chilled out evening!
Thanks as well to everyone who helped with first aid at the end.....who would have thought that saying good bye would be dangerous....


Indicate the way to my abode....
Home here too. Love to all. I am Nicky Batson on facebook if you would like to add me.

Thank you all so much for a lovely weekend. Em and I won't leave it so long next time :O)
OMG!!! I just got an email to say that Jenthefunkyranger and Guiding Nutter on geocaching.com have retrieved a travel bug called Twinkle Twinkle Little Torch. It has a welsh flag chain on it. It belongs to TeamCompton4. I AM THAT TEAM!! It is my family team with hubby and the boys. How legendary and weirdly coincidental is that!! Who had it overnight, did I sleep in the same room as my own travel bug and not know it ??
