Tale Weaver – Badges – December 17th

This week, Michael has given us the topic of Badges for our Tale Weaver Prompt.
I was never a Brownie or a Girl Guide, so there was never a case of badges to be earned by cooking, doing housework, needlecraft or the like. I didn’t earn  many badges at school either, apart from a colour badge denoting what ‘house’ I was in, a Junior Badge in my third year of Grammar School (I think because I stood up for myself) followed by a Librarian Badge in 1971 and 1972.

Hubby used to buy me a birthday or anniversary card that had a badge of some description on it, but sadly I cannot put my hand on any of those now. I remember I was the Best Wife and Valentine though.
The latest badge of honour and note was received in August 2019 when I finally reached my Target with SW.
I attached the badge that went with it to my membership book as a reminder to keep myself on track and what I had achieved.

There is a film that has a badge challenge in it that always makes me smile. It’s the
‘Helping the Elderly’ badge that Russell is aiming for when he hitches an unknowing ride with Mr Fredricksen in UP.
If you haven’t seen the film and like animation, give it a whirl. It’s fun.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Well done Di, I never received any badges, a cap once for playing cricket.
