I forgot! I didnt even realise it was the 11th today!!
We had a 2 minute silence at the shopping centre & for the first time that I can remember the 'Last Post' was played over the centres loudspeaker system & everybody stood still. I was almost weeping with the emotions that come over me whenever I hear the 'Last Post'. I managed to control myself by grabbing a spare piece of silver ribbon off one of the displays behind me & quietly pulling it to shreds!!
