It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Marham House, the halls are decked with boughs of holly and the trees are dressed. There are twinkly lights on every floor and beautiful Poinsettias on the tables.
Following the disappointment of last Christmas when we weren’t allowed to celebrate with our families there is a real buzz of excitement this year. We are taking part in a Christmas activity every day and today it was carolling, and it was joyful.
This morning Gina came along and sang to us, she was fabulous, sang all our favourite Christmas songs and we sang along at the tops of our voices, we even got up and had a dance. The morning flew by, and we were so disappointed when Gina had to leave.
After lunch we had treat number 2; The Salvation Army band arrived. They set up on the landing and played Christmas carols, I don’t think there is anything that makes you feel quite as festive as a brass band playing carols, the only thing missing was the snow.
We had mince pies and mulled wine and again, we sang along, what a day.
This week we have been pampered, sung to, we’ve been entertained by a life size elf and a giant turkey, and enjoyed festive yoga and we are only a few days into December.
This Christmas is going to be special, no matter what happens, we are going to enjoy every day together.
