So I was right! But I know she didn't drive, she doesn't have a licence! (touche). So she was driven, all 300 miles of it, by Dave (who we met at Stoke) presumably. That's a five hour journey, so probably arrived home about 4am. She didn't get much sleep last night did she, and we know she likes her sleep. But perhaps she dropped off in the van. Once again, her stamina amazes me! We were young too, once!
Hi All, I had a lovely day in London yesterday both going to the St Paul's event and seeing Hayley at Waterloo!!! She looked absolutely stunning in her red coat. Just right for selling poppies. This year I am proud to wear my poppy!!! I took many pictures of the event (including one of me with Hayley) but unfortunately not many of them are all that good. It was a lovely event. I noticed she gave out quite a few poppies to some really young children and how lovely she was with them. All in all, it was a fantastic day. I also had the pleasure of meeting Richard which was very nice. I 'm looking forward to meeting more of at the Barbican nearer Christmas
I understand your sentiments Jeff but it isn't always that easy, we do have to justify our existence like you but at least you can say we grab every opportunity we can and make the most of our good fortune and do our best to share them!. Peter S.
Her eyes were the blue of cornflowers that dance amongst ripening wheat, Her hair the colour of golden sands bleached by summer's heat.
Yes me too. I bought my poppy from a lovely blind man in the centre of Rugby at the same time that Hayley was selling them in London, so I was there in spirit. He told me he had been blind for twenty years, and I guess he was around 80 years old. I was a bit slow, (as I have been elsewhere on this thread), and it was only when, as he was standing almost under Rugby clock tower, he asked me the time that I noticed his white stick!
I must be getting senile.
I hadn't the heart to tell him I would have liked to have bought my poppy from Hayley.
Hayley and Jonathan were there for about 45 minutes, and they just sang the four choruses of 'Amigos Para Siempre' together, with no solos. The event wasn't really publicised to any great extent, so there were only a few fans in attendance. We were outnumbered by the photographers at first, but then a few commuters stopped to see what was going on.
