Tess

Collage birds

Dsc 0784Our theme for January is birds - leading up to the RSPB Big Garden - so we've been crafty and conjured up a new species of collage birds sitting pretty on their nests in the lounge.

Scrabble

28 December. A quiet, post-Christmas game of scrabble to exercise the brain cells. A full board, all but three tiles used, and some very good words to boot!

Christmas Day!

marieandsantaThankfully all the residents and staff had been good this year so Father Christmas came to visit with a sack full of presents. And his visit was quickly followed by another Christmas lunch. More turkey anyone?

Lyme Regis concert

This year, Lyme Regis Town Band held their annual concert on Sunday 13 December and invited us to attend. Residents were excited to see Caroline playing the bass and looking very natty in her red blazer! We all thoroughly enjoyed the concert and are already looking forward to next year's.

Carol singing

A big thank you to the lovely group of carol singers who helped us raise the roof this evening, 10 December, with a post-supper carol singing session. How lovely to hear so many voices and to see visitors and residents singing so heartily.

"He's behind you!"

What fun we had this afternoon watching our Christmas pantomime - Jack and the Beanstalk, and what a scrumptious buffet supper we enjoyed afterwards. The actors were superb and our residents were delighted to join in, some even getting up to dance!
