Today we celebrated the lovely Sally’s birthday in true Portobello style. We started the day with a beautiful champagne breakfast and finished with a delicious afternoon tea .. of course, there were many surprises in between!
Once again we have all been very busy at Portobello Place. There has been Zoom Bingo, flower arranging, Wii games and Zoom quizzes, lots of exercise via Oomph, just to mention a few!
We at Portobello Place have been overwhelmed with beautiful cards that have been sent to us. A big thank you to the Post of Kindness campaign for creating this initiative and keeping it alive through these hard times. Please keep sending and we at Portobello Place will do our very best to reply as soon as we can.
Today at Portobello we celebrated Maureen’s birthday. Our Chef made her a beautiful cake in addition to Colin the Caterpillar supplied by Maureen’s Granddaughter. After the celebrations, we played carpet bowls and John was our lucky winner!
Today has mostly been ‘Oomph’ .. we started our daily exercise with Oomph on demand and then had an Oomph 50s & 60s concert. We also had an art class with George via zoom followed by fresh air walks around the garden and delicious hot chocolate
