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.
