23/02/2021 – Day & Evening shift – michael cornelius

Shift Report:

I collected an excited Fela at just after 9:00 am and brought him back to ours. Carla and I had a telephone consultation with Fela’s keloid specialist, who had good news for us.

Fela listened to some music whilst I was making up the picnic, when all was done we set out for Brough Park in Leek. Fela frog-marched Mama around the park, with me trailing at a distance behind! On returning to the car Fela steered Mama away from the car and at first it seemed that he was going to take her on a second lap! Fortunately it wasn’t, he needed the loo and recognising where he was – and it has been a long time since he was last at the leisure centre, he made his way straight to the entrance, and they were allowed in even though it’s being used as a testing centre.

After this we drove to ‘The Olde Oake Inn’ at Upper Hulme where we ate out picnic – keeping a sharp eye out for any belligerent policemen!

We then went for a drive to Longnor and back, during this Fela became insistent that he wanted lamb, pasta, pizza and something he insisted was chi-chi. It took Carla a long time to work out what this was – turned out it was chicken and chips, satisfied we had finally understood what he was telling us, he sat back and enjoyed the country drive.

On returning home Carla came to discuss with me how the pizza should be made, I erroneously thought she was asking for advice! No such luck I was to make it! As I struggled she kept reminding me that Chloe had made it and said how easy it was to do so and how wonderful it was, she even offered to ring Chloe so she could give me full instructions!!!!!!!!!!!! Hmm I struggled manfully on and made a passable job of it – but not as wonderful as Chloe!

At dinner being a well brought up english lad though I tackled the lamb chops manfully with knife and form, Fela spied that I had left a- from his perspective – an excessive amount of meat on the bone – so he helped himself and demonstrated just how picked clean a bone should really be! But as it involved eating with fingers don’t think I’ll be learning that one.

During this evening Carla did some dancing with Fela, and we eventually took him home to Zoe.
