Hi Everyone Hope your all well Where has the months gone it may already only 6months until Christmas Hah ha! We have only had 3 days of lovely sunshine so far I’m waiting patiently for garden weather. I have been busy over Easter joining into making Easter Bonnets and Easter egg hunt with the kids. I joined the best of Broadway production and with my feather bower on I sang my socks off and danced what a brilliant production. Every morning at 10.15am, I come down to the bistro to see Ally, Jill, and Helen and choose a verity if drinks each day and play games like Dominoes and memory games Connect 4 and more I am the Connect 4 Champion and proud! I’m looking forward to going to water Perry gardens on Friday on the mini bus and enjoy a nice cake and cupper in the café. The St Georges party celebration was good fun singing with a brilliant buffet and food as always from our Kitchen at the Close Yummy Yummy! Bye for now I’m keeping my fingers crossed for sunshine in May Lots of love Julia x
