    The photos are of Dot Cotton/Branning from Eastenders. She's still in it after many years. God love her, she's a UK soap icon! Will be killed off eventually but for now she's still going. In real life the actress, June Brown, is much more sophisticated! She still smokes in the show as she always has done

    I love that older woman like ny nan had clothes that they kept for decades. The clothes my grandma had were made by seamstresses not sweatshops, good quality fabrics, laundered and stored properly. I personally think that in the age of disposable fashion we could all learn something from older women.

    Lol. I talk to older people every day about how they manage at home and we ask them if they manage doing their own washing and so many of them say "oh yes, I have an automatic washing machine". It would never have occured to me that in 2014 they would have anything other than an automatic washing machine... Although some are still using a twin tub.

    I agree, when my beautiful nanna passed away in 2002 we found dozens of beautiful outfits from Myer still with the tags on. I kept some of them, just because they remind me so much of her. Definitely very different to the poor quality stuff on offer nowadays!

    Yep. When we moved my nan put of her house she had 3 large wardrobes full of clothes, shoes, bags etc. It was all good stuff too. Even in the nursing home other residents had 2 dresses and my nan the clothes horse had so many clothes she broke the rail in the wardrobe.

    OMG when I'm 43 I'll have a 5 year old, can't even imagine having grandkids, let alone 5 of them at this age. I'm actually not sure if this makes me feel old or young. Old I think.

    My step dads mum became a great grandmother in her early 50's.... and I just realised my husband is only 13 years younger than my mum

    Don't knock the twin tub. I would use one if they made them big enough.

    I know a 78 year old lady who washes her son's undies by hand....amongst well as most of her clothes. She doesn't trust the washing machine lol.
