Dear all

I have stayed in the Close for over a month after my operation at Nuffield Hospital.

I unfortunately use a wheelchair at the moment but looking forward to walking very soon, (fingers crossed).

I have met lots of people and enjoyed the company at the close.

 Also all the friendly staff which has made my stay at the close an enjoyable one.

I joined the activities trip to Oxford history museum which was amazing and I could have stayed there all day so much to see.

The foods lovely never thought I could eat so much.

(But I Did ha ha)!

Looking forward to spring arriving I enjoy being outside.

Bring on the good weather.

Thank you for reading my Blog hope you all have a lovely March


  Many Thanks    Brian Turner
