Hello everyone

Well hope your all well and escaped the nasty colds and flu over January. (Fingers crossed, keep them crossed until spring ha ha!).

My highlight of the month was listening to Mike Hammer ex-lead guitar player for Hermon and Hermits band, He had a wonderful voice also was amazing drawing a picture of Elvis Presley while singing.

I join the weekly quiz and most of the activities daily.

My most enjoyable times spend with my daughter that is also living at the close and my Son in law visits regularly to both of us.

















Food has been enjoyable in the dining room chatting to friends around the table while I have a 3 course meal.

 I visit the hair dressers weekly always a treat to be pampered hair wash and set ‘’feels lovely’’.

Well January has gone I blinked and it was over

Hope you all have a Healthy February!


Kind Regards

Barbara Peach
