After lunch, Fela had opened his surprise present which was the DVD ‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood’. Fela began to watch this DVd upstairs on the red settee. He then had dinner which he enjoyed – beetroot and lentil pasta with leftover beef rogan josh curry.
After dinner, Fela finished the DVD. It finished just in time for his snack. although we had intended to do some dancing after dinner, we ran out of time. Plus we left Green Pastures at 20:30 just after Fela finished his snack.
We accompanied Fela back home, and helped to settle him then once Fela entered the bath at 21:10, we left for Green Pastures. Fela seemed calm and content as we left.
