St Pancras Christmas Tree

It's made of S'Lego!!!! How cool is that? I've not seen it in the flesh, so to speak (should that be in the plastic, I wonder?) but two friends have and are more than impressed...... I googled it so forgive the link
but it's so worth it. I'm hoping to get either DD or DS2 to go and get some photos for me.
If you can go and see it I'm certain it would be worthwhile. I'll see if I can attach one of the photo's from the same website........

Photo from the Demotix website and taken by Craig Shepheard.

Do go and look if you are anywhere near London over the next few weeks. I think the lights are going to be switched on on Thursday 24th Novemeber.

Speak soon. Jude.x

We will Remember

Why do I wear a poppy? I’ll tell you if I may,
Because I believe remembrance is... not only for one day.
I wear it for the fallen, and for those falling still
For those who come back broken in body or in will.
For the parents, spouses, siblings where bereavement takes its toll.
Whose pain will never leave them, it eats into their soul

For the wino on the corner, of his nothing’s left.
Now he wishes when in battle he had died a hero’s death.
For the lad who loved a kick-about in the park with all his mates,
But now his legs are held together with pins and metal plates

For the selfless men and women whose final journey home
Is in a Union flag-draped coffin on comrades’ shoulders borne.
For all those marching proudly In Remembrance Day parades
My poppy’s worn in gratitude for the sacrifice they made.

We will remember them.
