Lessons from Hendrik Groen aged 83 1/4

Every month I try to attend a book group, run by my local chapter of the Women’s Institute.  I love this group, the women and the books warm my heart and soul.

Last month the book we discussed was30240157 The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83 1/4 Years Old. This was not a book I initially enjoyed, but one that took me on what turned out to be a heart warming journey.

Henrik Groen lives in an old age home in Amsterdam. As the story suggests, it is a year in the life of this elderly gentleman. He decides that he wants to make some changes to his life, and keeping a diary is the first. The second: he concludes there has to be more to the life he is currently living and with the help of some mates forms the  Old-But-Not Dead Club.

Together these elderly crusaders, set about changing their lives.
