I’m an angry Guider. Someone else has “helpfully” washed my Leader polo again, after specifically being asked not to three times now. They removed it from a hanger to do this and it was clean but “because it matched the dark wash” they stuck it in! It has shrunk a good three centimetres. Our area doesn’t cover uniform costs so it was self bought. Angry doesn’t cover it. (It’s not just the damage to the uniform it’s the disregard of my explicit wishes).
You have my sympathy. We have been without our relatively new but lovely assistant Guider most of this term because of tensions within her family. She is getting depressed and we can't do much to help her. We send her a hug sometimes. Here's one for you too.
I'm a guider who wore a different length bridesmaids dress to two others, and it looked fine.
I'm a guider who prefers being a bridesmaid as you don't have to work out what to wear, and do your own hair!
we do number crunch, they each have a number that they have to remember or they have on a sticker/wristband (could split into groups if easier) and when we shout/call 'ny=umber crunch' they have to shout their number out. it's worked with us so far - we do it with brownies & guides. x
