starting with sherry, bucks fizz and mince pies in the morning, Mummy Santa (aka Sarah) brought in all the presents for the christmas elves to distribute amongst the residents and guests; then it was Christmas lunch with all the trimmings, crackers and wine and a few corny jokes!
after the Queen's speech everyone settled down for some entertainment, courtesy of the Karaoke machine, and some fine singing from residents and staff - Mary even started off the dancing!
thank you to Vivienne who hosted Christmas lunch and to our visitors and guests who helped make Christmas special for the residents of MEH. Of course none of it would be possible without the Care staff who postponed their family Christmas to make sure the residents enjoyed theirs. all over for another year.....

Manager Karen, arrived at work early Christmas morning to find her office completely under cover! the staff had crept in at dead of night to wrap everything in sight - filing cupboards, desk and chair, even the door to her office! arranged on top of the desk were Christmas presents, cakes and goodies. if anything was going to stop her working for at least one day of the year, the staff were determined to do it! nothing else for it but to pour the bucks fizz and join in the fun.

Quite a day for the birthday girls today ! Anne had lots of visitors, lunch in the library and presents flowers and cards.
Sheila and Di had to work this morning and Diane in the laundry made sure everyone knew it was their birthday by making sure they wore big pink birthday badges !! They joined in with the choir this afternoon and the residents all sang a rousing 'happy birthday ' ... Good job they've had lots of practise with their singing ...
