Well, I've just done my second and final session at our Poppy Table in ASDA and I'm feeling quite sad - I didn't want to come home It really has been the most remarkable and special few hours.
Today we were visited by several people with family members currently serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, yet they all seemed so cheerful - I think I would be a nervous wreck. I think now though, that I understand more clearly why visiting Basra last year had such an effect on Hayley and why she has become so involved with the RBL. The work they do is amazing and I'm proud to have done my little bit.
Incidentally, the ASDA table raised £5500 last year - as of 8pm last night, this years total had reached £4937 with two of the busiest shopping days still to come.
