A common phrase we hear among middle-aged women is, 'Is it is just me or..?'. Such as, is it just me or is it boiling in here? Is it just me or is it very loud in here? Is it just me or is the writing on this menu really tiny? Is it just me or does this song have an awful lot of swearing in it? Well, hooray! It's not just you! We're all learning to live with our changing bodies, menopause and an evolving perception of the world around us. Fair to Piddling is a laugh out loud collection of verse charting a journey from parenthood to post menopause. While it certainly touches on menopause, it is not entirely about hot flashes, gin and chocolate (I lie, there is a fair bit about chocolate) but rather those moments; unexpected observations and conversations that flavor our experience of midlife.

I'm 47, male, and bought this book for my wife for Christmas. I couldn't resist having a quick flick through and ended up finding resonance in every single poem, and genuinely belly-laughing out loud too! Now I've no option but to buy another copy for my wife, as I've made the first one look secondhand!! Well worth it though, fantastic book of poetry!
I thoroughly enjoyed it, read it three times straight off. Sent it to my menopausal daughter but told her I wanted it back!

Clever humor and self deprecating prose make for a heart lifting read that leaves a smile on your face. A good compliment to a bottle of wine to make a great gift for any occasion. I plan on making this my go-to for all my friends. It’s a no brainer.
