Singing with the king.

Portsmouth Report written by Julie Blake

This was my second visit to 91-year-old Mrs. J. I came with a list of questions about her favourite foods, memories and songs. In addition to discovering that we were born one day apart (plus 46 years), we had a lively chat about her favourite fruit (pomegranate!) and veg (parsnips!). After she recalled the song she and her husband danced to the first night they met, she was astounded when I pulled out my phone and put it on for her. This led to a very enjoyable sing along and some dancing in our chairs to Elvis Presley, Tony Bennet and Willie Nelson. Mrs. J said she was the life of the party in her youth and she still has a great set of pipes even in her golden years.

A rosy afternoon.

Portsmouth Report written by Julie Blake

I visited Mr. A for a friendly chat. We talked about how he chose the name for his cat Gracie, his family tree including some interesting traveling acrobatic performers, and something else we shared in common: both having had surgery on our right feet! He showed me his many plants, shrubs and flowers including some lovely rose bushes that were already in full bloom.

Just my type.

Portsmouth Report written by Julie Blake

I had a lovely visit with Mrs J who isnโ€™t mobile and was very grateful for a little chat. She explained why watching EastEnders is better than watching films, and told me about making the perfect roast chicken and potatoes. We also talked about her past work as a typist and being born in the 1930s. Lots more to talk about on our next visit!

A chirpy and cheerful afternoon.

Portsmouth Report written by Julie Blake

I spent some time chatting with the lovely Mrs. J and her beloved budgie Bobby. Fun fact: she has owned many pet birds over the years and has named them all Bobby, regardless of whether they're male or female.

Our conversation covered many topics, from tinned potatoes to the coronation festivities, favourite teddy bears, Canadian geography, dogs, and exactly how hot a cup of tea should be.

As a bird lover and past budgie owner myself, I came prepared with a big bag of millet spray for our feathered friend to enjoy. In classic budgie behaviour, Bobby didn't even think about investigating it until I moved ten feet away. Hopefully I can win her over with some whistling on future visits...
