hairdressing day - and the salon was buzzing with the latest gossip! later I went to collect a book from the library for Dympha, and Pat came along for the ride. There was an art exhibition on - nice prints but a bit pricey we thought!
jemma and daughter milly brought in a little puppy they are looking after for a friend at the moment to show the residents. lucille, john, madge and marjorie all enjoyed meeting him and giving him a cuddle!
dorothy wanted a job to do today - preferably paperwork she said - so we asked her to collate some papers for the sponsored walk being arranged for october; she requested payment in chocolate and we were happy to oblige.
