April’s Activity Summary!

My goodness where did April go….seems I’ve only just sent my March Blog!!

I do hope everyone is well and not too wet or sun-burned……last week we were exercising with the conservatory door open, shades down….some Residents sitting in the garden

Clare tending the beautiful flowers and dear Richard on his hands and knees sorting the patio weeds!  This week saw us shut away again watching the rain and the strong wind blowing through the trees with gusto!

Oh well that is our lovely Great Britain…they do say variety is the spice of life!

On the subject of variety we enjoyed listening to and singing along to some great songs from the Sunday Night Special CD….how many of you remember the ‘Sunday Night at the London Palladium’ ?

Lots of memories and smiles of ….Norman Wisdom ‘Don’t Laugh at Me (fantastic voice!)….Frankie Vaughan ‘Green Door’….a wonderful rendition of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’  by Harry Secombe….one of our visitors reminded us it was the Liverpool FC Anthem….we tripped over our tongues with Max Bygraves ‘Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer’ another favourite was Flanagan and Allen ‘The Umbrella Man’  some Residents remembered they were a part of the Crazy Gang who appeared regularly at the Palladium….many times for the Royal Family.

On St. George’s Day there was a real buzz at the Manor with the news that Kate had gone into labour!!!  We missed the announcement as we were busy Exercising and having fun with a St. George’s Day Quiz.  I tried to get some red roses for the day but everyone had sold out!   I brought some bluebells from our garden instead…..lots of them about this year….beautiful.

This evening I took in flowers for the bud vases…..so lovely as two ladies and two gentlemen were still in the Restaurant. The two ladies offered to help with the arrangements before retiring to their rooms…lovely smiling faces and we had a real giggle as well.

We are due a sunny Bank Holiday…enjoy!
