Glitter, Dementia and Remembrance
I took my DAB radio to the club today so we could "listen" to the 2 minutes silence. I couldn't get a signal but we still acknowledged the silence.
We (Alzheimer's Support) have been asked to decorate a Christmas tree for one of the town churches. I have been collecting pine cones for a few months and, today, a few ladies painted them with glue and covered them in glitter. Such simple pleasure was greeted with delight and laughter and was worth the mess created!
The orange slices I dried for the same tree have gone mouldy! I must have put them away to soon. I shall have another go over the weekend.
My boss made the Wiltshire Times but look at the headline (extra)!!
I know I harp on about ballet (sometimes) but BBC2 tomorrow 8.30pm is Young Men - a wartime dance film by the Balletboyz. I have seen the stage version twice at Sadlers Wells and Keaton Henson's score is breaktaking. Florence was part of the production team so I have an added interest in it. Watch if you feel inclined!
