Question 88 years old and WOWEE!!! ...

So, about Mum...

1. She will be 88 years old on 28th November this year.
2. She runs a 4 x bedroom house single handed.
3. She has the most beautiful little garden I have ever seen, with colourful flowers in bloom the whole year round.
4. She still drives a car every day.
5. She has 5 x children and 9 x grandchildren.
6. She is Roman Catholic and goes to church every morning with her friend Mary who is 93 years old ... Mum drives them both there.
7. There is always someone staying or coming by for a meal and Mum is a great cook.
8. She was born in Switzerland and speaks Swiss-German as well as English of course.
9. She came to England as an au pair girl at the age of 19.
10. At that stage she could not speak a word of English but is now totally fluent.
11. She met Dad at 19 and married him and had me at age 20, with 4 more to follow.
12. She colours and cuts her own hair and has not been to the hairdressers for 40 years.
13. She puts on make up every day but just mascara and lipstick and occasionally some foundation.
14. She has a one-hour bath to soak in every night.
15. She sends me an email every evening because 6 months of the year I live in Turkey and the other 6 months in Cardiff with my partner Mike.
16. She looks amazing and most people think she is my sister ... I am 67 years old.
17. She wears her hair up in a French Pleat at the back which she does herself every day.
18. She is an English size 10 - petite at 5ft 1ins and fit and strong.
19. She wears high heels ... yes, even in the snow and ice! She totters about quite nicely thank you!
20. SHE HAS NOT SEEN A DOCTOR FOR 45 YEARS!!!!

I think she deserves a medal from the Queen ... but if she can't have that, well ... I have just entered her for the competition by Edwards Holidays in England to win a free trip to Holland, whichwould be fantastic! Thank you for taking the time to read about my incredible Mum. Her name is Paula Reardon. My name is Angela Paula Reardon.

My fingers are crossed for her!

All best wishes, Angela in Side now for another week x

She sounds a fantastic lady, all good wishes to her, hope she wins the holiday. I wish I could manage half of the things she does, it tired me out just imagining it all and I'm only a mere 69.

Re: 88 years old and WOWEE!!! ...

Thank you all for your kind comments about my Mum. When I asked her how she managed to keep so well for so long and to look so very young, her reply to me was ...

1. I believe 100% in God.
2. I try to do a good deed every day that nobody knows about but me.
3. I have a one hour bath every evening.
4. The 9 x grandchildren keep me busy and the 5 x children and their partners.
5. All my life I have used Baby Lotion ... no other creams or soaps at all ...
6. I have always liked to keep active and to take an interest in others and the news in particular.

So there you have it ... let's hope she keeps going until 100 and gets that infamous letter from the Queen ...

x Angela in Side x
