I came across a really sad story yesterday, a letter written by a husband, following the death of his 49 year old wife, who went to Hungary for  butt lift surgery(https://twitter.com/vicderbyshire/status/1069940048995516416) . It got me wondering,  whether there is an age when you are too old for surgery. There is an age when you are too young for […]

Over the last couple of years it has concerned me hugely, why or how it came to be that my relationship with my best friend of several decades had come to change.  Is this normal? Is this a thing? A best friends is to be treasured.  She is the one who you trust above all others- she gets […]

Family- a great concept.  A unit often, but not always connected by blood, and which in theory, provides a warm glow of trust, security and love,  that can’t be provided in quite the same way by outsiders.  Really????? With Christmas on the horizon, there will be many who are dreading having to spend time with their family; […]

I went out for a meal with a group of women recently and we did not know each other well and in some cases not at all.  Therefore the host had the good sense to send a message to all, advising that we will each pay our own bill. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, the restaurant […]

Two years ago when my fabulous friend was in her late 40s, she received a call from her supervisor, on her way to work, asking her to head straight to her office on arrival.  My friend called me because she feared bad news and anticipated that she may be let go.  She was right.  She was made redundant, and […]

Dating in your 40s is a nightmare for soooo many reasons, one of which is because……. you’re in your 40s. I mentioned in a previous blog, that the woman in her 40s today, is not the same woman our mothers were. We are modern, exciting, we love fashion/make up and we like the same music as our […]

The thing that strikes me the most about being in my 40s, is how unlike my mother I am when she was my age.  She was sensible, practical, frugal and frumpy.  The generation gap between her and her kids seemed huge – I think it fair to say she did not connect with her children, which […]

Another successful PlayDay, despite missing one or two regulars due to Mother’s Day.  Apologies to those who couldn’t make it, but it there wasn’t another Sunday this month when the hall was free.  Still, 10 members wasn’t a bad turnout.  And with Allan present we used his boards to set up a large 2 x […]
