Rememberance Day

Today is Rememberance Day when all our war dead are remembered and thanked we always have a minutes silence at 11-o-clock wherever we are, all the shops stop what they are doing and everyone bows their head, not a lot to ask when you remember what these people did for us. I was watching the service in London on T.V. and they were explaining about the tomb of the unknown warrior. The body in this tomb was brought back from France after the first World War, there were so many unidentified bodies that they decided to bury this one with all the honours, he is buried amongst Kings and Queens. What comfort this must have given hundreds of parents and wives whose loved one's did not return, they could think maybe this was their relative and take some solace from that. It's a sad world at the moment and we are still losing loved one's to awful wars, God Bless them All and thankyou.

Sorry it's been a while.

Hello everybody, sorry it has been a while since I posted but I have been busy finishing a quilt and making curtains and Christmas shopping and lots of other things too. All the shops are now decorated ready for the christmas season I really cannot believe it is that time of year again.
All our family will be with us this year so it will be a busy one I am going to soak my dried fruit in brandy overnight tonight so that I can make my christmas cakes, I always make one for my mother and father-in-law and Dad likes a tin of mince pies too. The weather her is awful today very damp but some flowers are still bravely putting on a show. I have just completed a baby quilt top I will post it soon I want to make another baby one as Kates future sister in law is having twins a boy and a girl they are due in December so I will have to get a move on. I am off now to make a quilt sandwich with my baby quilt, speak to you all soon.
