*a Rainbow promise...*

Yes, today was promise day for the first intake of Rainbows at our newly formed pack in the village. I was reminded at 8.30 this morning that we needed to take some cakes for the promise party which was being held after the ceremony, so I whipped up a quick batch of rice crispie cakes, burning the first lot of chocolate, and having to resort to a bar of whole nut which Ed had hidden in the fridge!! Melted the second lot the proper way, with a bain-marie, and NOT the microwave. You wouldn't believe the amount of smoke generated by a small amount of chocolate catching fire...!!! Despite the lumpy nuts, the whole nut worked really well - the resulting cakes were delicious, if I do say so myself. They went down well with the Rainbows. I have a not-very-good photo of F saying the Rainbows promise; forgot to correct the red-eye, so she's looking a bit spooky!

And a much better one of F, A and two of F's best friends - one face is pixellated because I haven't checked that it's OK to post on the great www.

Had a real treat earlier in the day; looked after the divine Miss Elizabeth for a couple of hours whilst her mum went for an appointment. She was as good as gold - she can definitely come again!

Isn't she a peach?!! She was such a good girl.

Has been unseasonably warm today; I just hope we don't suddenly go from a mild autumn to a bitterly cold autumn/winter - that's too miserable to contemplate at the moment...

I do love Freya's 'burger girl' Rainbow outfit. It's so much nicer than the granny tabard.

Elizabeth is such a cutie and I love the hair xxx
