Very Poppy – Dymo Tape

Maybe a Trip to Harlow 620x620 Very Poppy   Dymo Tape


I bought Poppy a vintage Dymo machine from eBay for Xmas. I got her lots of different coloured tapes from the 70’s. She loved it. One day after Christmas she sat next to me on the sofa as we watched television and she produced little phrases stating her thoughts & desires and stuck each one of them to my shirt, one by one. That was typical of Poppy, she was so beautiful, both physically and in her soul. I’m missing her wonderful loving soul at the moment, really struggling without my loving little girl.

Very Poppy – The Funny Little Man

Eddie Jordon WeLovePoppy 620x826 Very Poppy   The Funny Little Man

Eddie Jordan and not Bernie Ecclestone was Poppy’s ‘funny little man’

Over the years Poppy and I have watched a lot of Formula 1 on Sundays. Poppy always used to ask about ‘the funny little man’. Naturally I assumed she meant diminutive F1 Supremo Bernie Ecclestone, especially as he was often seen walking with a comparative giant of a wife on the starting grid. But in fact she meant Eddie Jordan. Poppy had a fixation with him and she picked up upon a ‘camp’ aspect which somehow passed me by. Cosmo and I always laugh now when we see him and always find it funny how Poppy formed her ideas. Eddie Jordan in his bright coloured trousers, little shoes and strangely detailed belt is indeed ‘Very Poppy’.
