When Fela arrived just before 9:30, he was in a good mood. After taking off his shoes, he sat in the lounge and was happy to listen to relaxing jazz music. he was a bit vocal but soon quietened after Claire returned from dropping Chloe. I offered him a cup of tea.
As 11:00 approached he began to look sleepy so I brought his blanket and cushions downstairs and asked if he wanted to go upstairs or stay down to watch church on TV. He chose to go upstairs after his snack. Fela was very quiet whilst watching church online.
I was in the kitchen helping Michael who is still recovering from sciatica. Lunch was served at 13:00. As usual Fela had seconds of mains – roast beef, roasted roots, roast potatoes and cauliflower cheese. He also had seconds of dessert – banana and chocolate cake with ice cream. He left the table with a big smile. Fela watched youtube videos of Stevie Wonder and Motown, then just before 15:00 he requested the toilet upstairs.
Afterwards, he sat on the red settee upstairs looking sleepy. I gave him an early snack of grapes, quick manicure then prompted him to lie down for an hour. He slept for about an hour then we heard him go to the toilet. Fela left Green Pastures around 17:00 with Claire and Alicia. He seemed calm and in a happy mood.
