12/10/2023 – Day shift – michael cornelius

Shift Report:

Most of the day Fela was very very noisy but very happy. Once Carla had left he started asking for pasta, pesto and lamb then fish. Eventually I managed to convince him he was getting chicken! He was also asking for egg, butter, cooking and licking, so we made chocolate chip and sultana buns. I made the initial mixture then asked him to help – which he was very happy to do, he mixed in the sultanas and chocolate chips, he put the liners into the baking tray, then added the mixture to the liners and then the tray into the oven.  Having worked so hard he then enjoyed the lickings form the bowl. He adjusted the Teeach Board to include T D Jakes, I’m not sure how much he heard as he was very noisy and I lowered the TV volume in the hope that he might quieten – I hoped in vain! I persuaded him to bounce on the ball for about 15 minutes as I finalised lunch. After lunch I asked him if he would like a nap – a definite No! was his response. We listened to some music and I played a new game with him, getting him to pronounce your names when shown a picture card – he really enjoyed this and I think Carla will be saying more about this soon. Obviously my punishment was considered insufficient as the 1:00-1:30 I had been given for my release was delayed until about 2:30! My headache has nearly cleared. Fela obviously had a very enjoyable morning.
