I was born and grew up in the West Country. I have four and a half siblings. University in a northern city was followed by six months in Saudi Arabia working as a nanny for the royal family. I then went to Bavaria to work as a kitchen help for a few months and stayed six years: working as a chambermaid, nanny, packer in a chocolate factory; and finally, after I learned German, in an office. After five years in Bath I now live within an hour's commute of London.
I dream of retirement, deplore the extra six years I need to wait for my pension, and plot where my feet will take me when I'm free, to take my country count to 100.
Me Men Menopause was inspired by a desire to share my experience of the shift in men's attitudes to me as a female as I aged. And - my attitude to them. In the past, hormone-fuelled and conditioned. My stated ambition was to come back as a 32F. Now, my dream would be the eradication of porn, and to live in a more natural world where women were happy to be completely, naturally, themselves.
