102 Is A Magic Number.

Hi Peeps,

.

Even very old people can find excitement…..if they have the nerve to go for it.
.

A while ago there were more saddening headlines about older people being uprooted willy-nilly from their nursing homes before being scattered away from their friends and routines, into new places whether they wish to go or not.

.

This is what happened to a 102 year old lady in Kent when her old peoples’ home was closed due to sudden, unforeseen, financial cuts.
.

Her daughter lived far-away in New Zealand with her husband, where Louise had visited them several times over the years.

They decided to ask Louise to come and live with them, instead of being moved to another, unfamiliar, care home in the UK.

.

Louise was up for it, once her daughter managed to get a 3 year visa from the New Zealand authorities.

.

She finally arrived there yesterday with one small suitcase, having got rid of her other possessions.

Her daughter having travelled to Britain in order to accompany her mum back home.

They were booked in the economy class with Air New Zealand, who instantly upgraded the pair to business class for the journey.

.

Louise was met by reporters at Auckland airport, where she promptly informed them all that she was feeling fine but was gasping for a really good cup of tea.

.

It just shows that the game is not over until you say that it is!

Good for her.

J,

.

And Louise Sydes is not the only venerable 102 year old,to have arrived in New Zealand.
.
They took taken posession of a case of 102 year old whiskey that had been found in Antarctica, where it had been safely buried underneath a hut in 1908, by the famous explorer Earnest Shackleton.
