I did manage to find a poppy this year when I went to B&Q on Sunday. I haven't seen anyone selling them on the streets in the last few weeks. I did a quick count as I walked around St Anne's square for lunch and saw 17 poppies and 1 white poppy. I reckon I must of walked past a good couple of hundred people who didn't. 1 in 20 seems like quite a low participation rate and I wish I knew the reasons.
The Metro broke down this evening so I walked home this evening. It was a nice change to walk home while listening to XFM on the radio. I did treat myself to a take-out (which is a first in many months) to balance out all that extra exercise :-)
