Mary Ann Clifton, who turned 108, shared the "secret" of her longevity while celebrating her birthday. Rosina, as she is affectionately called by her family, believes that it is all thanks to her favorite alcoholic beverages and the right time to drink them.

SSPDaily writes, "The centenarian believes that the key to her happy and long life is to having a drink during lunch. She insists that this habit has never done her any harm."

Work hard but have even more fun

Ms. Clifton's first piece of advice is to enjoy a "beer" or alcohol with lunch, which she believes is good for your health.

Her second piece of advice is to work hard but also have more fun.

She believes that hard work doesn't hurt anyone, but it's important to be able to enjoy its fruits.

A party with a surprise

Recently, Ms. Clifton was invited to an afternoon tea party organized by the team at Care UK's Foxbridge House, where she shared her tips on how to live a long and happy life.

In addition to enjoying the celebration, Mrs. Clifton received a special telegram from the King.

A look at the 108-year-old's past

Born on March 16, 1915, in Lambeth, South London, Ms. Clifton worked as a dressmaker after completing her education. She later joined her daughter's printing business.

She met her future husband Ernie when they were at school together. The couple had two children, Pamela and Bernie.

Ms. Clifton's legacy is her family

Ms. Clifton has a large and loving family that brings her great happiness. Today she has four grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and seven great-great-grandchildren.

This is a testament to her long and fulfilling life, and she enjoys spending time with each and every one of them.

Ms. Clifton is a "much loved and popular" resident

Stella Barnes, who manages Foxbridge House, described 108-year-old Mary Ann Clifton as a "very well-liked and popular" resident.

Barnes added that the staff worked hard to organize a surprise party, where a message from the King's birthday card was read out.

Attendees enjoyed scones with jam and cream and sang along to music from the 1920s and 1940s.
