Thursday is hairdressing day, when Charity comes to keep the resident's looking good! also on thursday we have our weekly visit from Toby (our PAT) dog, with owner Angela, who takes him around to all the residents who like dogs. Patty, Doreen, hilda, Paul, ursula, margaret and dorothy, all look forward to seeing him. Today, he and one of the resident cats met in the lounge and it was a case of 'who was on who's' territory! Think Toby won today.
Daisy came along to borrow the camera as Paul found this hat (which i think belongs to madge) and decided to wear it for the morning! He looked so pleased with himself that Daisy thought he'd like a photo which i shall print off for him tomorrow!
This afternoon, we held a relatives meeting in the music room, which was well attended (including Kate from H.O) Sheila made some lovely mince pies and we had mulled wine, tea and coffee while Karen updated everyone of what has been happening at MEH and what the future plans are. Anyone not at the meeting will have a copy of the minutes sent to them. we didnt set a date for next meeting but it will probably be next march.

the outreach library books were open today for susan and diana to change their books. hazel just came along to have a look at the choices.
Robert felt in the mood for playing some Chopin on the piano today, encouraged by patty who stayed to listen.
In the afternoon, we had a new activity called 'Variety Hour' which all the residents enjoyed - a mixture of music, singing, quizzes followed by tea and cake!
