Hi Karen and Kerry, I too am in the UK.
For St.David's day I get daffodils made up in craft session beforehand so they can be displayed,do a quiz on Wales, I have a "Famous David's quiz' ( there are quite a lot if you research it), I have a jumbled up black and white picture of twenty things that begin with D. Kind of on top of each other so they have to turn the paper this way and that. Finally,get out the CDs with Welsh singers.

Beauty Therapy

I do this and call it Namaste Care(Google it if you are not familiar with it)
I put on quiet classical music,light some oil burners usually with lavender essential oil,hang fairy lights around and dim the lights.
I offer Ponds face cream(it's been around for years and most recognise the smell.)
Then we offer manicure and finish with lavender hand cream.
For those who are fairly unresponsive, I offer a Swatch of different textured materials,glass people's in nice colours,marbles and those beautifully coloured small lizard type animals. I think they are stuffed with sand. You do have to watch the no-one puts the hard thing in their mouth.

Great site,so glad I found you.
Is there any way we could go to the forum and carry on where we left off instead of having to travel through all the previous posts.
