With everything that’s going on at Riverside Towers at the moment in the bedroom department, it’s quite fortuitous that it also coincides with Nigel’s turn to collect Iris from Nursery, when even the tantalising opportunity to hand Pete a screw, nail and hammer just can’t compete, even for Nigel!
There is nothing Nigel loves more that picking up Iris, having the ladies tell him what a lovely time Iris has had, and then having Iris come to the door and squeal “It’s Nigel!” when she sees him waiting for her. She always seems to have a painting or drawing to bring home, and when she has chosen a new book, Nigel always reads it with her when they get home.
The Nursery is wonderful, Nigel would love to be invited to stay one day, there are lots of outdoor activities like gardening, and sand and water and lots of corners to play shops and houses, as well as painting and play dough.
There is even a meadow to go for a walk in, to look at nature, collect leaves and see the frost on cold days, and in the meadow is a Bear Cave for telling stories, it’s magical.
On “a Nigel collecting day”, Nigel always treats Iris to lunch at Moo Moos, our Evesham lunching venue of choice. Usually they share a plate of scrambled egg on toast, but this past week or so they have moved on to a doorstep ham sandwich with salad garnish and crisps. with a sophisticated pot of tea. Yes, it’s easy to say that with all the robust temptations home improvements can bring, nothing, but nothing would keep Nigel from collecting Iris from Nursery, even if we were offered a 60 minute Makeover with a celebrity host and a whole team of helpers, Iris would always win hands down!
