Holiday at Home
Holiday at Home 2

I didn't work on 19th August. Instead I was at church with a lovely group of people. It was 'Holiday at Home'. For those older people who may be don't have a chance of a holiday for whatever reason — cost, logistics, simply not wanting to travel alone.

What a WONDERFUL day it was! We had coffee and biscuits and a natter and a laugh. We played Seaside Beetle (based on a Beetle Drive). We had a knobbly knees competition. We had photos with the typical seaside board (fantastically made by Philip). We had lunch and drinks with cocktail umbrellas and straws and then pudding. We had more tea. We had a birthday cake for our lovely Bob Wright. We had a sing song with our patriotic bowler hats, knotted handkerchiefs and windmills. We had crafts, making paper boats, wooden boats, airplanes, sticky elephant magnets, ladybirds, chicks and bees, hooking a duck. We had a quiz. We made sandcastles. We wrote postcards. We had sticks of rock and ice cream. And then we went home.

The generosity of people's time and money and enthusiasm is amazing. So thanks need to go to everyone who helped. It was a great day and everyone had fun.
