its cool, for like an hour and a half me and other leaders are in control of a bunch of kids, who surprisingly enough listen to us, i gotta say they are good bunch and I'm proud of them :)
yesterday before scouts one of the girls wanted to go the park as it was such a nice lovely day, and she really wanted to go on a boat ride, so we agreed we had over an hour until scouts started, we managed to find the lake and sure enough there where boats for hire, for half an hour it's four pounds fifty pence which you have to show a ticket which you buy from the ice cream van??????
so the four us who i have to mention are not experienced when it comes to handling boats, approached the boat and getting onto the boat was a tricky business and it took time to the extent that the dude handling the boat was getting annoyed by us and muttered 'come on girls i have work to do' yeh well we are newbies when it comes to boats rides so ha.
can i just point out that every so often one of my friends would say 'white african you are going to behave yourself?, white african your not going to do anything dangerous? white african you wont drown us? white african, white african white african blah blah looooool.
well.... would i ever....I'm shocked they would think such a thing of me.
i didn't row, i was being the bag lady, holding their bags as ever and sara rowed to there hearts content or let me re-phrase that tried rowing ha ha ha.
can i just point out that sarah wasn't actually rowing here she was on her phone tut tut tut.
also, ever the idealist who is sat on the left side managed to cut herself rowing, how is that even possible???
from where i was sat it was highly amusing to watch the many tries of rowing, at one point we where going round in a circle and we just kept turning for some bizarre reason, that song was in my head 'if you turn turn turn turn turn'
it was a lovely day though and enjoyable and the sun was out and ducks where going mad, there where so many of them, and after being bitten by a crazy duck in Egypt (there not supposed to bite they don't even have teeth) I'm slightly wary of ducks now.
so after the half an hour of trying to row we miraculously rowed ourselves to the shore where the grumpy man was waiting for us, so well done ever and sarah you guys did well and well done me for not sinking us or doing something, and faiza you where a great support although it was pretty funny of you to shout out 'guys can we stop rocking the boat i have a phobia of water' looool.
