A common phrase we hear among middle-aged women is, ‘Is it is just me or..?’. Such as, is it just me or is it boiling in here? Is it just me or is it very loud in here? Is it just me or is the writing on this menu really tiny? Is it just me or does this song have an awful lot of swearing in it?
Well, hooray! It’s not just you! We’re all learning to live with our changing bodies, menopause and an evolving perception of the world around us.
Fair to Piddling is a laugh out loud collection of verse charting a journey from parenthood to post menopause. While it certainly touches on menopause, it is not entirely about hot flashes, gin and chocolate (I lie, there is a fair bit about chocolate) but rather those moments; unexpected observations and conversations that flavor our experience of midlife.
