meanwhile, dance class was being held in the dining room! 
After lunch, Christiane arrived to set up the Bingo session in the music room, followed by a general knowledge quiz. Eric topped up the bird feeders and Marie went  for a walk on the common.

Nikita and Sharon are busy organizing the sponsored walk on 2nd october; it will involve as many residents as we can persuade to take part -  details will be appearing soon in the foyer.

sketching on the common

dymphna, phyll, patty, lucille and marie joined me and (volunteer) victoria on a trip to tunbridge wells common just across the road to meh. it was a beautiful afternoon and while marie and victoria went off for a walk, the others got out their sketch books and new sketching pencils to produce some masterpieces;  photos will be put on the blog later.

the pope arrived today in scotland, so the tv went on at 11am this morning so  residents could watch the pomp and ceremony.

robert came down to the music room to play his piece on the piano  and I introduced barbara to some new watercolour pens.  Dorothy's daughter visited and helped her open latest email from her grandson & send a reply.
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!
