A sprightly 105-year old woman has shared her secret to longevity. And it’s all about avoiding men and staying single.
The centenarian, who lived through both world wars, was born in 1913, and hared her tips with carers at her retirement home during her 105th birthday celebration.
Recipe For Long Life
Brenda Osborne, a retired nurse, revealed that she reached 105 by keeping well clear of men, getting out in the fresh air, and working hard.
She lived in her childhood home for an impressive 93 years before she moved to the nursing home at the ripe old age of 104.
Where’s The Queen?
“I would put my good health down to hard work and avoiding men. I loved celebrating my birthday although I was disappointed the Queen didn’t come.
I received my letter from her but I thought an appearance was the least she could do.”
Brenda first began work at Victoria Hospital in 1940, nursing Dunkirk veterans, and received an award for only having one day off sick in 33 years.
Wow, I think we could all learn a thing or two from this inspiring woman.
