Claire did the board with fela and he appeared happy with this.
Fela is relaxing drinking his tea.
We then all got ready to head out, all outdoor wear put on and walking boots.
We headed to bathpool for a walk but it was extremely icy and members of the public appeared to be slipping. We then headed to apedale country park, the paths were much better and we had a brisk 30 minute walk. Fela appeared to enjoy the fresh air.
Once back at the car fela had his snack and drink.
Once home fela removed his outdoor wear and made his way to the lounge to relax in his rocker and watch a dvd (Joseph).
I asked fela if he would like a hot drink and fela signed for a honey, lemon and ginger tea, which I made for him.
Fela then had his snack at 3:30pm.

Once the film had finished Claire cleaned felas keloids and then got his shoes on, fela then headed to the toilet.

We all sat for dinner at 18:10pm, fela said prayer and then we all ate.
After dinner fela made his way back to his rocker and continued to watch his dvd.
I then made fela a hot chocolate, fela then sat at the table, I asked fela to wipe his hands and fela became agitated, this lasted 30 seconds, fela calmed quickly.
Fela then continued to watch his film.
At 8pm fela had his supplement and snack.
Myself and Zoe then sat with fela and did Makaton signs for animals and weather, fela did amazing! We gave fela lots of praise.
Fela then had his phone call with mama, fela had a massive smile on his face and was very happy to speak to mama.
Fela said I love you really clearly to mama.
