This blog began in 2010 following redundancy and quite astonishingly early retirement.
Originally, the idea was to reflect on the experience of being female, middle-aged and out of work in recessionary Britain at the beginning of the 21st century. After a while it morphed into writing about whatever caught my eye or my imagination.
I write about politics, current affairs and social change and have a particular interest in homelessness. For the record, I don’t belong to or support any particular political party.
I also write about my interests – old interests like photography (a lifelong passion), books, writing and films – and developing interests like theatre and art. Sometimes, I just write about my day.
