Welcome! This blog has been set up to explore all the ups and downs and assorted idiosyncrasies of middle-age for women. That life-phase which spreads itself so damn generously before and aft (often with considerably more aft!) the midway point. The end result will be a non-fiction book (tentatively titled 'The Invisible Woman, and other remarkable phenomena of middle-age'). So please join in the conversation - all feedback/opinions/anecdotes/rants and raves welcome!
