Lest We Forget

You probably wont be surprised to find I am going to dedicate today’s blog to Remembrance Sunday.

As usual I have bought at least 6 poppies and managed to lose most of them, apart from the three proudly worn by me and my two daughter’s this morning during the local Remembrance Service. I think it’s important that my children understand what Remembrance is all about and why we give thanks for those who gave their lives, often without choice, to ensure our freedom.

We have a strong military connection within both sides of mine and Geordie’s families and most years we all come together to have dinner and swap stories of time spent in camouflage. Each of us counting our blessings that we’re all here and in relatively good health.

To all those who have serve, thank you and all those who have lost their lives, we will remember you.
