Armistice Day

Check out for today’s poem.

Had a fabulous time at the tea dance in Stratford east. Matthew the dj had gone that extra mile to do a set for Armistice Day and taken us on a journey in time using music from the 40s. Brilliant, There was Eric and Shalamaar, Daphne and Gladys, Mary, Geoff and all crowds of us marching and dancing, holding hands, crying, waltzing. If you didn’t know the words to “We’ll meet again”, “There’ll always be an England” cos we’re not all war babies! or “Jerusalem” so what? Hum, mime, trill jus’ get in the spirit. Then puffed but stronger, we ate cake!

Is it really hard to do the 2 minutes’ silence on an online radio?

Reading Neil Oliver’s “A History of Scotland”…cos he is the ultimate eye-candy.

Won theatre tickets! Life is good.
