Happy Monday #35


Happy Monday everyone!


16 days ’til Christmas ūüėÄ ¬†I sit here unfazed by that statement… because I managed to¬†do all my Christmas shopping in less than¬†in 25¬†minutes. courtesy of t’interweb. ¬†It has nothing to do with this post, but I’m so proud I felt the need to share. ¬†Get in there!


Right, so I’m writing this with a cat sat on one arm across my laptop, and a dog¬†laid across my legs. ¬†Not only do I feel like the Dr Doolittle of blogging, but I suspect my one handed¬†typing might prove to be¬†a little off. ¬†Just to warn you.


So this week I’ve got the most awesome Christmas gift ever to share with you. ¬†Awesome and highly amusing,¬†in equal parts.


Happy Monday #35


Last week, one of my favourite sites – The Chive – shared the story of a Milton Keynes retirement home and their adventures in fundraising.


These¬†awesome residents (aged 64 – 93) decided to create a “Golden age of cinema” themed calendar for 2015 and sell copies to raise funds for residents activities.


They dressed up as everything from the cast of Reservoir Dogs to Dirty Dancing!

See the full calendar here: The Chive – Retirement Home reenacts Famous movies for their calendar.
Check it out – it’s worth it. ¬†Believe me, if you haven’t seen octogenarians dressed as the cast of Star Wars, you haven’t lived!
You can check out the story here (BBC) and keep up with their antics here (Facebook).
Have an awesome Monday and follow the lead of these seniors…¬†enjoy the moment,¬†have lots of¬†laughs and make the most of every¬†opportunity ūüôā
