My lovely Nana - Mrs Violet Brown - who will be a fantastic 90 years old, 2007. She is absolutely sharp as a razor and it's like talking to a 20 year old - often she'll phone my mum from one of her day outings with her club saying that she's having a lovely time in the disco, playing Bingo, walking along a seafront, shopping & chatting with friends etc... She has a flat screen TV, can text on her mobile and has a more active social life than I do lol - despite two replaced hips.

Born in 1917 - it's unimaginable to just stop and think about what she has lived through. Family lost in The Great War, returning home in WWII from her work to find just her doorstep left, the inventions she's seen, the changes in society... she has three husbands behind her and says that she, "doesn't think she'll marry again" lol - I just love her optimism.

Happy Birthday, Nana.
