The Change of Life or as my kids say the day the Aliens from Space took my Mum Away.

Getting older is cruel and unusual punishment, everyday sees your face and body changing in some quite odd and frightening ways. Seeing yourself naked is now cause for tears, body parts that once long ago where firm perky and round have given into the laws of gravity slowly heading for the ground, it sags, it droops, it wobbles, it jiggles sways and swings. I remember having a face smooth free from facial hair, now it’s not just my underarms and legs that I shave or pluck or Nair.
If my hair is not growing in unusual places it’s turning grey or falling out and has the strange resemblance to a ball of steel wool.
There also seems to be an unwritten law that after the age of 45 your brain leaves the building,
and leaves no forwarding address just bits and pieces of information in a jumbled mess.
Going through the change of life is like becoming temporarily certifable insane,mood swings, hot flushes and endless nights of insomnia leave you behaving like you’ve lost the plot, in summer your cold in winter your hot, your poor family run and hide when you walk in they think the aliens have taken Mum and left an evil robot twin.
