HILLBROW DIARY: Monday 15th – Sunday 21st March

On Monday 15th. March we started the week energetically with chair based exercises and enjoyed some pampering. During the afternoon the hairdresser visited.

On Tuesday 16th. March ahead of St. Patrick’s Day on Tuesday we enjoyed gentle exercises and an Irish word search.

Dorothy, Ann and Joy were active participants!

During the afternoon we reminisced looking and working on our personal scrapbooks over a nice cup of tea.

On Wednesday 17th. March St. Patrick’s Day we enjoyed an ‘Irish’ quiz and learnt a little of the history of St. Patrick’s Day.  We enjoyed shamrock decorated biscuits with our mid morning tea!
