    Default CareHome 'H' Jan 2015


    This is my first report, so I hope I have done everything correct :)
    I also feel I have left it long enough from OMJ's report, for you to forget how good his photos were compared to mine

    First off I would like to thank OMJ for taking me, or rather putting up with me.
    This is a pretty good place for a newbie, and I'm going to be hard pressed to find anywhere that will top this.
    Stunning building outside and in, I can't believe no vandals have touched this place, it really did look like they all got up and left, leaving everything behind
    I kinda got freaked out a bit when I re visited for video footage as there was a bird knocking on the upstairs window constantly for about 5 minutes.
    The part I loved about this place was the albums, and the fact that the elderly people there must of been uber cool and loved listening to 80's goth and rock tunes :D You can't beat a bit of 'sisters of mercy'.

    Anyway, I'll stop chatting and let the photos do the talking. Again, I apologise for my lack of camera skills and please don't flick back to look at OMJ's ;)

    Yes, you did run off and leave me, on the top floor as well :(
    I watch far too many horror films for that to be a good thing.
    As for the sisters of mercy album being rare, there were two of them. You don't understand how much willpower I had to use to leave them there, that and omj would of killed me, haha.
    Thanks guys, you are such a lovely bunch. I was scared hitting the post button for the first time.

    Yeh, and you'd still be there too if the car had started!

    I know what you mean about hitting the post button, I still feel like that sometimes...
