This week I got to be eleven. I went with two dear friends to see the movie ‘Beauty and the Beast.’

It was like role reversal for me. Back a hundred years ago, I went to an ‘R’ rated movie (A Clockwork Orange) when I was 14….and they thought I was 18 (it was the boobs). Fast forward 43 years…….this time I went to a kids’ movie and I’m 57…. I didn’t even have a grandkid with me. Yep, I’m living on the edge folks.

Look, I’m no expert, and I must not use this little platform of a blog to shove my personal opinions down each of your throats, but I really am gagging………

Sometimes I think that all women should become actresses during the years that they go through menopause, because this is the only stage in my life that I can ever remember being so easily brought to tears, and then complete and utter rage, all within the space of a few minutes!

Have you ever been through Immigration/Passport Control and Customs? If you have, then you already know it is rather like being a sheep. One is herded into zig-zaggy queues and lines, and then everyone stands there trying to not to look anything remotely like a Terrorist, or drug smuggler, but like a person you would entrust to raise your infant child
