It was a bit of a mixed day today: lots of pride, a little bit of sadness and lots of excitement. Pride – the girl joined her Brownie pack in commemorating Armistice Day this morning. It happens every year in this lovely village of ours. We live quite near a naval base, so there are lots of navy families living here and lots of retired veterans, so today many joined the Brownies, Cubs, Cubs and the Scouts at our local cenotaph to remember the dead of the two world wars and conflicts since then. They marched from the church and gathered at the cenotaph. Also gathered was quite a crowd of local people who also wanted to pay their respects. Sadness – There was a piper and prayers and I found it all very sad and moving. My grandfathers fought in the war, one was a regular in the army, the other joined the navy during the war. They both survived and lived to a good age, but I just felt so sad for those people who did not. A church service followed, which me, hubby and the boy did not attend not being very religious and also the boy was getting fed up by then.
Excitement – our neighbour’s lovely daughter agreed to babysit our kids, so hubby and I were able to go and see Skyfall. I really enjoyed it, it was exciting throughout, but it wasn’t as fantastic as I’d heard it was. Daniel Craig is always good to look at – sorry hubby! Can’t believe it last two hours 45 mins because the time went by so quickly!! It was so nice to go out with my lovely other half, just the two of us. Thanks for taking me handsome! I know you read this!
