Er, 16 Runny? Time for a coffee......
Well said pansy.
Just stood in the garden for my minute.
On a more uplifting note
I was in John Lewis at 11am near the coffee shop - all very busy and bustling with people shopping / chatting / laughing / going about their business.
At 11am they announced all partners would stop what they were doing for 2 mins and the whole shop fell instantly and wonderfully silent & still.
Very respectful. Strangely moving.
I kept quite and still for a a few minute and just looked outside.
Good for them.
Does anybody else find crass the modern habit of clapping after two minutes' silence? It happens at fottball matches particularly.
I do pansyface.
Quite moving - having that one on it's own. Last year I sowed some and they didn't germinate. Did some more and just one came through. More poignant somehow.
I got a bit frustrated at work today. No one acknowledged the two minute silence except me. Was hoping nobody would ask me anything as I wasn't going to answer.
I clapped Diana as she came down the Harlestone Road on her last journey in fact there was a round of applause, that might have been crass I suppose but it beat just standing there watching her coffin go past like some gawper, it was probably all a bit over the top but there you are it won't make any difference now will it!
