watching the children play on the rope swing, over the brook in our village, brings back memories of my youth

A roguish night with my lover.

I can say what I like because I'm not eligible for the prize anyway grin

Keeping up with my 21 year old daughter and her friends keeps me young. I must be The 1975's oldest fan!

I find that going for a long swim really invigorates me and makes me feel young again!

Being with all my grandchildren

Going to the hairdresser and wearing make up. Since I’ve retired I don’t bother so much so it’s a lovely treat to do both. Makes me feel fresh and younger.

Doing something different in the house - changing a color scheme or curtains and cushions to make the house fresh and new looking.

All my grandchildren help keep me young whenever I see them. There are seven of them ranging from 2 days old to 17 years old and it is a joy to see them all, although not always all at once because three live near Blackpool and the rest scattered round the West Midlands, not far from where we live.

All I have to do is dance - I hear the music and then I'm away and forget about everything.

My three beautiful nieces make me feel young again ☺️❤️
