work in progress!

Julian has been working very hard over the winter, clearing the garden and planting up the spring bulbs. took this photo today showing the crocus bulbs just beginning to flower outside marjorie and phyll's windows.

the other work in progress is the new hair salon along the annexe - here we have the skip which was delivered last week and will soon be full of rubbish from the refurb...

hollie to the rescue!

trip to Tonbridge yesterday - shopping in boots and coffee in cafe nero for john, lucille, phyll, marie, marian and susan hs.

in spite of the rain we managed to have a nice afternoon, even when the lifting apparatus on the mini bus wouldnt work and hollie had to get it moving manually! thank goodness she was on board to help out!

art and craft afternoon

everyone looks very hard at work, being creative today. we are in the process of making a collage wall hanging for the dining room, made with silk, paper and various other materials...

Julie our tutor managed to get my sewing machine working, lucille and patti are making flowers, marie and marian made pompoms, ursula was coating the paper flowers in pva medium, jean and iris made tassels...

this is a 'work in progress' and will take a few more weeks to complete but the process is fun and will involve as many residents as possible...

monday 7th feb

builders have arrived today to start on the renovations for our new 'hair salon' at mount ephraim house. apologies if you tried to park here today - it was a bit chaotic!

elizabeth and joan held the monday discussion group in the library today, and had a lot of fun; the group is growing bigger each week...after lunch it was Reminisence Hour with Sue ...

lucille helped me straighten out the library this morning, patti is busy writing name cards for the dining room, helen was taken out to lunch by her daughter and phyll had visitors too.
