P is for Pink and Poppies.

     Hello Pals out there in bloggy land and for those who follow and take part in the ABC Wednesday I'm sorry I haven't taken part for a while but with one thing and another,well you know what I mean,hope you are all well and keeping warm.

    Two things that are very close to my heart and probably hundreds of you that may read this,is breast cancer awareness and the poppies for remembrance,and as we are still (just) in October which is breast cancer awareness month I thought a Pink ribbon would be good to put on my blog and remind everyone women and men about examining ourselves.My family have gone through the horrible disease three times and I myself have had two scares so I always support anything to do with raising money for research.
     Then in a few days on the 11th of the 11th we will all be wearing our Poppies with respect for all the people that have been killed in war.My Fathers brother was killed in the second world war and my cousins son was killed out in Afghanistan four years ago also one of my dear friends sons was badly injured in Afghanistan,so I again like to wear my Poppy and donate as much as I am able to to help families that are affected.
Two sad subjects to Post about but ones we should all be very aware of and ones that most of us will have been or know someone who has been affected by them.  SO FEEL THOSE BOOBS AND WEAR  THAT POPPY GUYS AND GIRLS.And I hope all you lovely people in America and surrounding countries are safe.
Take care love Jill xxxx


  1. Hi Jill, thank you for your post about the awareness of breast cancer, which is a constant threat to all women. Wearing poppies in conmemoration of WW II and WW I is beautiful gesture to the victims of these wars. I myself was a prisoner in a Japanese concentrationcamp for 2. 1/2 years.
    Have a great week.

  2. Wonderful reminder post and tribute ~

  3. Thanks for reminding me - I got a notice that I'm due for a mammogram! I must make an appointment as my older sister had to have a mastectomy and my younger sister is going through a scare right now...hopefully, it's just a scare, that is. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

  5. I was interested to learn that even the young men of my grandson's high school class have bought--and worn--the pink tokens this month.

  6. I like the idea of poppies in remembrance of war deaths.
