This year, for the first time in as long as I can recall, I wasn't part of the church parade for Remembrance Sunday. However, I still did my thinking and my minute of silence (although  I was in the gym so not sure if it really counts). I don't really like to go to church as I feel like a hypocrite when I do.

I wore my poppy brooch again this year. My mum bought it for me from M+S last year and I found it much easier to keep track of than the paper poppies which I always seem to lose. I also bought a crocheted poppy from one of the ladies at the gym, and made a donation to the Poppy Appeal instead of buying one this year.

A fairly standard weekend outfit. It's been a weird old weekend. On the one hand I saw my best friend and her beautiful baby, who I do not get to see enough of. And I went to a rather lovely fancy hotel dinner, which was nice. On the other, I managed to sew through my finger and finish a relationship. [FYI: the finger hurt most.]

How was your weekend?

    1. It was fairly mutual and ended on good terms really, so it could have been a lot worse.
