To mark Remembrance Day, we bought a balloon for each resident intending to release them into the sky. We included a tag on each one asking anyone who found it to respond to us. The plan was a good one and would of course worked brilliantly if it had been a windy day!!!
As it turned out, the day was as calm as calm could be, and we ended up with our very own "You've been framed" moment when, despite the enthusiastic efforts of the staff, the balloons got no further than the bushes in the garden!!!
Never mind, we still got to enjoy singing along to lots of wartime favourites and ended up having a bit of fun regardless!
