This afternoon Olive sat and paired up some brightly coloured socks, which she quite enjoyed. Meanwhile in the quiet lounge we used some modelling clay to get creative. It was very therapeutic. We chatted about what records we used to own, some of us remembered our first records, so Vicky found the songs on YouTube for us and we took it in turns at listening to our “memory music”. We did lots of reminiscing. Some of us just liked the feel of the modelling clay, squashed in our hands, others of us liked to make the clay into objects. Vicky was remembering making flowers and models out of icing and marzipan, when she was a cake decorator, many of us were remembering plasticine and the smell and firmness of it.
