and her poppy off to playgroup.

In the UK along with Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa (if I’m not mistaken), people wear paper poppies to remember those who have died during the war.  Here, they have what they call The Poppy Appeal, a fund-raising to support the Armed Forces and their families.  So when our next-door neighbour rang our doorbell the other day, without hesitation, I bought three poppies from her.  Every year, B rings the doorbell in all the houses here in Boscastle.  She’s a woman in her late 60s who just had a hip operation and when I helped her with her Poppy Appeal can – I nearly dropped it!  It was very heavy.  All for a good cause.

Remember, remember those who have lived and died for their country…
