The Menopause

I wish Walt Disney had produced a film which reflected the real world.

Think of Snow White at ‘a certain age’ – with her dwarves Itchy, Bitchy, Sweaty, Sleepy, Bloated, Forgetful & Psycho. Isn’t that a more accurate story about the Menopause?

Age Really Is A State of Mind

June is my birthday month so what do the astrologers have to say about Gemini women? “A Gemini woman is two, or more women rolled into one, possibly far too much woman altogether. Geminis are simply who they are, so the timid and weak need not apply! They are impossible to pigeon hole, a will-o-wisp, a changeling, a mix of intriguing personalities. Gemini women are one minute demure and doting, the next ruthlessly sarcastic, wild and unpredictable, but no less fascinating”. I’m not too sure I recognise that woman, but my family assure me …they do!

Summer Fitness

Mention summer and immediately bikinis, swim suits, short shorts and skimpy clothes come to mind. Whatever our age we all want to look our best in the sunshine and this means watching what we eat and being active to help us keep our bodies toned, trim and fit for summer.

Mans’ Infidelity

My heart goes out to Rod Liddle’s betrayed wife Rachel, and I can associate with her feeling that “the wife is always the last to know”. I too experienced the pain caused by my second husband’s affair. Unknowingly I too lived with a philanderer, and looking back should have spotted the clues – they were there. I believe some men are incapable of not wanting another woman, as well being seemingly happy with their partner. Philanders have one common traint – cowardice, an inability to discuss their personal emotions. It’s a weakness of character and a major difference between men and women.
