Sadly Olive will not update The Life of Riley any more. The oldest blogger in the world passed away on July 12th aged 108.

Olive took up blogging in February 2007 at the age of 106 with the help of Mike, her helper, and through her blog she became known and loved all over the world.

The blog is an amazing record of the life of this remarkable Australian lady, and also hopefully an inspiration to all of us that you are never too old to start something new.
