Birthdays are wonderful, a time to celebrate, to look back at the year and be thankful and to look forward to the year ahead. As adults we get used to minimum fuss on our big day, unless it is a “special” birthday, but every birthday is special.
At Kingfisher our lifestyle manager Steve works hard to ensure that every resident spends their birthday in a way of their choosing. Some of our residents want a party, with balloons and streamers, they want to share the occasion with friends and family and for them Steve will pull out all the stops, but not everyone enjoys a lot of fuss and for those who prefer something a little more subdued he organises something appropriate.
The birthday girl or boy always gets whatever they want for lunch, we’ve collected takeaways for those that don’t want to go out and a lunch date is arranged for those who do.
This week was Gwyneth’s birthday and Gwyneth decided that she wanted lunch at McDonald’s, knowing that Steve’s birthday was the following day Gwyneth was also keen that it was Steve that took her so that they could have a double celebration, double the fun.
The day went well, Gwyneth opened her cards and her gifts, the team sang happy birthday to her numerous times, and she got her lunch date with her birthday buddy.
