Friendly Rivalry

31 05 2009

It’s cold enough this afternoon that Mum has decided that the fire should be lit.  I offered to light it for her, but she elected to light it herself.  It was roaring away nicely, for a few moments.

Then it died, well nearly.  I saved it, it’s now going again.

Mum until recently (she decided to retire once my Dad got really ill just before he passed away) was the District Leader of the Girl Guides for her area.  I, very many moons ago, was a Boy Scout.

So it was with great delight, once the fire was going properly that I told her:

“Once again the Boy Scouts save the Girl Guides”…  *laugh*

There’s probably a slap coming my way sometime soon. 😉
