Let’s get going!

Reg’s fitness and strength have shot up and now the circular walks have become easy, overtaking others on many occasions 😀  Dancing too is slowly creeping onto Tuesday afternoons! That’s what you call getting on with life!

Trip to town, shopping or watching the world go by……

😀 all of the above it seems.

 Betty loves shopping and she proved she can do that even with seemingly no money. Key is a much more restrained shopper happy to do window shopping (just like me!). A quick ‘let’s pop down to town’ trip turned out to be about gambling – Dennis’s lottery tickets; finding a pair of new shoes at the charity shop for less that £5 and having c0ffee while watching the world go be in the Magnolia Centre.  Great morning!

Rose Lodge Choir Performing in Exeter

They loved us last year and so the choir was invited to perform again, this time in Exeter University. A strong team of 10, together with the choir Mistress Chanda, Michelle, Barry, Mary and Karen arrived in style. Delicious lunch, drinks relaxed everyone for a great performance. The song choice and the sining was well received with quite a few people coming to the choir members to say thanks! What a great team 😀

Big thanks to Gemma and everyone working on that day for making this happen! You know who you are 😀  Big thanks to Phil who drove people in Rosemobile despite the fact that he had something already booked for that day.

Newcastle FC great and loyal supporter, Tom can often be found reading football related books and following football stories in the newspapers. Yesterday Tom shared with us in the garden a book created for him which tracks the story of the club since 1905 through newspapers. Fascinating!

Catching up with reading under the pergola

Perfect recipe for a sunny hot afternoon. Harry finally burnt his garden rubbish in the morning…
