A laugh-out-loud account of one woman's journey from the brink of middle age to discover her new place in the grand scheme of things. Is there an invisible line we cross at a certain age when we become 'un-chat-up-able' and become someone's mum? When do barmen and supermarket check-out operators start calling us 'madam' and why do some women have the unnatural urge to cut their own hair with nail scissors or run away to Buddhist retreats when they hit forty? In this hilarious collection of stories from the brink of middle age, Kerre shares her insights into what makes us tick as women 'of a certain age'. topics explored include: coping with the empty nest; shoes, shoes and other indulgences; when is it futile to dress to impress?; is there such a thing as a female mid-life crisis?; and many more. told in Kerre's frank and self-deprecating style, this is a hilarious account of living life to the fullest – no matter what your age.
