I know we have at Briarlea. And this week, we certainly didn’t let Brexit, travel bans and border closures put pay to our holiday plans.
As, for a bit of fun, we decided to give our residents the chance to fly on Briarlea Airways. Evesham’s number one airline.
Everyone was given their ticket and a brand new passport – printed that day by Her Majesty’s Passport Officer, Joanne (who coincidentally doubles as our care home manager).
Lisa, fresh in from her day job as Briarlea’s chef, acted as our glamorous cabin crew, diligently checked everyone’s documents. She quite enjoyed the change of scenery as she ushered our eager tourists into the makeshift plane galley.
We may not get to the real Paris anytime soon. However, we’ve still got plenty to look forward to. Now we’ve received our second vaccine dose against Covid-19, we’re planning to see much more of our family and friends over the coming months.
Pity we rushed the duty free. We could have picked up some French champagne to celebrate.
