Abbey Lea Christmas Party

On Sunday it was the Christmas Party at Abbey Lea Care Home where Judith's Dad lives and I went along with Judith and Leigh to bring some schnauzer cheer to the proceedings :-) Of course as usual I was the first ready and waiting to go!

Come on quick - we don't want to miss the foodables!

It was very festive inside with decorations on the stairs and round the pictures.

There were lots of wheelie frames to help the older peeps get around and I had to be careful not to get run over! You can see I am doing a good job of ignoring the Santa hat - no way am I wearing any more than my favourite Christmas bandana.

I listened quietly to all the conversations.

Put up with a lot of head patting :-(

and tried to remind Judith that there were tasty smells coming from the dining room and we didn't want to miss out!

Finally a look at the festive spread.

Sadly they said food for peeps only - can you believe it? But I was given some little meaty leftovers for being so patient. I got to meet a lot of peeps at Abbey Lea - some of them had met my Trilby in the summer and could not believe I was her mother I look so trim :-)

We stayed a bit longer chatting with Judith's Dad and then it was time to go home but all in all quite a jolly party - there was even a lady singing carols and dance songs but I was just too tired for dancing!


  1. That looks like a very nice way to spend Sunday, you're such a good girl, I don't think SusieB would have been as restrained with all that food around!

  2. How nice of you to go with your peeps to Abbey Lea and spread some holiday cheer Magic! It sounds like everybody loved you and you got lots of compliments. You do look very trim too! I'm glad you did get a few little scraps out of the deal. :)

  3. I'm sure all the residents loved you Magic. Glad you didn't miss out on some of the goodies...must have been torture waiting to be given some :-)

  4. HI Magic
    That sounds like a great day out and you look very festive in your christmas bandana. Where glad you got treat's at the end.

  6. Lovely decorations, you musta had a great time

  7. That was so nice of you to bring all that schnauzer cheer, because as we know, that's the best kinda cheer there is! I think in our mind we would've been conspiring on how to jump on that table with all the foodables, maybe it's more than just the barking that keeps mom from taking us out in public.....
