Marie may be ‘getting on a bit’ but it’s certainly not getting her down.

Her family around her and a man who loves her means that life is good – but nothing stays the same for long.

Marie’s golden years are filled with as much drama – love, laughter and tears – as ever. Which just goes to show that getting on a bit does not mean giving up – or even growing up.
