Our music

We love music and have plenty of opportunities to sign, dance or listen throughout the week.

Our feet cannot stop dancing!

When good music is played – who needs fitness when you have dancing!

Fun time together over musical quiz

Tuesdays with John are very popular! We are getting better with our musical knowledge (staff that is!), it is fun and an opportunity to catch-up

The garden is open for business, When Harry met Ron and Bunny and Spring

Bliss, finally a beautiful day. Morning  fitness with Mick, and there was a dash to the beach.  The sun so warm we spilled out straight after lunch and it was only rain that pushed us back inside at 3.15pm! Gerry and Reg took a walk and fed the fish. Meg helped with sweeping.

Ethel and Ethne loved listening to the spring sounds  and views (yes, daffodils!) , Kay and Betty chatting away and all four watching men at work.  And men we did have! Ron continued with digging out what was a very big and prickly shrub and Harry helping out and supervising. And as you would expect they moved after that to discuss the important aspects of wisteria 🙂  It was great to see both Harry and Ron enjoying doing something they love and enjoying each other’s company. And if that was not enough Harry has now got a second garden mate – Bunny. Where do you find Bunny on the terrace? Under the raised beds cleaning the paving 🙂

And the gardening was followed by another wonderful live music session / music quiz. As usual Eileen and Clare enjoyed the music tremendously watching John’s playing. We all had a super day!Let’s pray for more days like that…

Musical Waves in the Indian Autumn Air

The effect of the physical setting (garden, terrace, pond, water, colours, sunshine, shade, own space, coffee, cake, friends, family) and that of sang music on a lot of people continues to amaze us. This afternoon was no different. Tom assumed the position of the lead singer next to Bruce and Claire sang beautifully with her strong and perfect voice. Friends and family joined too! Ethne loves the warmth of the sun, the atmosphere and the music.

Perfect day combined with blackberry picking trips, walks, reading library books, hanging washing, coffee and cake on the terrace…………
