WHY The mid-life crisis is nothing more than a myth!
As I studied umbrella reviews online, it struck me that a transformation was occurring, I appeared to be turning into Frank Mitchell. I have recently developed an obsession with the weather forecast, umbrella reviews and storm-proof apparel. If I’m not careful I’ll be making up totally unguessable riddles for town names next. I also have a new penchant for deeply unfashionable footwear and I’ve acquired more than a passing interest in stationery (I’m a slave to the polka dot notebook!). I have no idea where these strange middle-life flights of fancy will lead me next. Take yesterday for instance. One minute I was perusing trainers in a sportswear shop, the next I was trying on a canary, yellow, waterproof jacket. I stood admiring myself in the mirror, fantasising about wearing it in torrential rain and staying dry. My husband and son stared at me in horror.
