As I grow older, I find more and more inspiration from awesome older ladies who live in the spotlight. For example, I want to be as classy as Helen Mirren, as sassy as Betty White, as funny as Carol Burnett and now I have a brand new lady to add to my list of role models. 105 year old Ivena Smailes is my new hero, and these pictures from her recent 105th birthday party show exactly why!
Yes, that’s Ivena with not one, not two, but five sexy firemen! But how did Ivena get to live the dream that women have been having since the fire service was born? Well, quite simply, she asked for it and these fire fighting studs delivered! What a lucky lady! Here’s Ivena enjoying her birthday party.
Ivena has been living in the Addison Court Care Home in Gateshead, England for three years and she’s been keeping the staff and other residents on their toes with her wicked sense of humour the whole time she’s been there. When the care home staff found out that one of the top items on Ivena’s bucket list was to have her birthday cake delivered by a hunky tattooed fireman, they knew they had to make it happen. So they got on the phone to Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service and sure enough, Ivena’s birthday party suddenly had a surprise guest climbing through the window! Here’s a video of his grand entrance!
How jealous are we right now?! According to the Tyne and Wear Fire Service representatives, all it took was a call from the Addison Court carers to get them to agree to grant Ivena’s wish and they were more than happy to be involved. If only it was that easy to get a gang of hunky firemen to climb in my window! Lucky for them Ivena only had a few candles on her cake, if she’d had a full 105 they might have needed to show up anyway! Here are the guys getting ready to give Ivena the surprise of her life.
Sounds like Ivena had the best birthday party ever! Not only did the troupe of firemen deliver her cake, but the party was attended by a local dance studio and a singer who performed some of her favourite songs for her. And, of course, she was surrounded by all of her loving friends and family who enjoyed the delicious buffet that had been provided with her. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a birthday party that comes close to this one!
Happy birthday Ivena! You’ve succeeded in making women the world over jealous by making friends with these sexy firemen but it’s clear to everybody that you deserved it and it looks like your family and friends had a great time too! You’d better start making plans for your next birthday already though, you’re going to need to raise the roof to top this year! We hope that all your birthday wishes come true!
