Remembrance Day

All a soldier needs to know is how to shoot and salute 
- General John Pershing
Welcome to my Remembrance Sunday 
Breakfast and Brew.
I gets on the sequins and my red hat.
It's not looking very good for the weather!
On goes the rain mac.
Now to leave the house.
Gets down there early to get a car parking space.
I helped with the cakes going into the Social Club.
Then hubby and I went over to the car park for the parade in the rain.
I was at the front of the parade with 5 other Councillors.
We walked to the war memorial which took about 25 minutes.
At 11am it poured down with rain.
Then  we carried on with the parade.
The High Street was closed off to traffic,
However as we were going up the road, car were coming down. 
We finished back in the car park where we started.
Then we off for a hot drink at the nearby Social Club.
Got talking to a lot of people.
Had some nice food.
The coat came off to reveal the sequins.
After the raffle we left to go home.
I must have a caught a chill as I had a lemsip and a sleep to shake it off.
Hubby done the tea.
Then to watch...
We watched 2 of the 3 episodes.
Sleep Tea Time.
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel  🎡 tomorrow

Celebrating Together

We had a busy day ahead....
I visited my mum
(to wish her a Happy 72th Birthday)
My kids took part in the Remembrance Day Parade
 Followed by:
We went to a Service and then Blessing of the Graves.
The Vicar blessed my mum's grave. As he blessed her with holy water....
I moved out of the way, as holy water can burn!
