Dancing round the living room to one of my fave tunes from when I was a young and 'cool'! Now I'm just old - but still one cool & hip Nan!

I feel young every time I go to the happiest place on earth, I don't know how he did it but Walt Disney was a magician, and I'm now waiting for grandchildren from my newly married daughter to start with the next generation!!

Whenever I get the chance to dance I feel young again, especially if the music is of the 60's era.

My 5 year old grand daughter doing things with her like what I use to do as child always makes me feel as young as a child again

Spending time with my two granddaughters really helps to keep me young.

Paddling in the sea digging sandcastles and eating ice creams on the beach with my grandchildren took me right back to my childhood.
