w/c 27th April 2020
I hope you've all stayed safe and used your time well this week. The weather has not been as nice for us and that may have hampered some of your plans. Staying at home is definitely harder when it's raining!
I told you last week that I was planning on baking for my local care home. I did bake, but unfortunately the results were dreadful. Mrs Eastwood will vouch for my poor food and nutrition skills. I was distracted by the many other jobs we are all juggling at the moment, and my cakes burnt. I did buy some cakes from the supermarket and delivered those instead. I know that lots of you have done things to help family, neighbours and your local community over the past weeks. These small acts of kindness are hugely important and make a massive difference.
