    Did you miss me?

    After a break (not sure exactly how long) I've returned to eScouts in the hope that I'll have more patience this time around.

    My Scouting (and non-Scouting) life has changed dramatically since I last posted but looking forward to a renewed energy.

    What've I missed?!

    I did wonder where you'd gone. I meant to ask a mutual acquaintance but forgot when I saw her!

    Nice to see you back

    Had some demons to battle and needed time to step back, take a deep breath, and then make choices.

    Looking forward to new horizons.

    Scallywag is still here, still tilting at windmills.

    That was something I wanted to attend but there was so much on had to make choices, one of the comments I have made is that they need to get scheduling better and try to get sign up before the event. Like not having a ceilidh at the same time as the camp fire

    I know the numbers attending the courses was down which leads to the questions (a) was it scheduling, (b) were they the right sessions, and/or (c) was it due to no pre-booking?

    Personally I would have liked to have offered pre-booking so I knew the numbers I would be dealing with.

    Never mind - the Grim team do work very hard and I know the 2013 event will build on strengths and address weaknesses.

    Pleased to see you back and hopefully fighting fit in every sense.

    Never been to Grim even though it is on the doorstep. I think it is because I am so dissillusioned with local Scouting just now, or maybe local Scouting is disillusioned with me.
