I bought my poppy as an ongoing reminder of why it was made. It currently sits in a cupboard whilst I try and find the most appropriate display method for it – however I’ve got to confess, it did get slightly damaged when it fell over and some of the petals snapped off.

We fixed it with some superglue, but actually, I quite like the fact it’s damaged and not quite in perfect condition as it’s quite a stark reminder of the effects of war and the sacrifices soldiers made for us.
