The music chimed brightly and I danced my heart out. The song was as light as my feet, as I delicately spun. My heart soared,...Read On

Good Girl Guides

A group of young Girl Guides get a little out of their depth in their rush to grow up too fast.

“You girls have work to do.” The six Girl Guides reluctantly sloped away from the fence that separated our pitch from the neighbouring one where a group of scouts kicked a football about.
