Alternative Ageing
Blogger, Author & Broadcaster

I have always acted my shoe size rather than my actual age so when I reached my 50s, just in time for the Millenium, I moved to Brighton by the sea, dyed my hair bright red, wore more colourful vintage style clothes and wrote Alternative Ageing, from which my blog was born more recently, both to help inspire other women to follow my crazy path of ageing disgracefully and gracefully, and to never become invisible.

Mud, Music & Mayhem.

However old I get, I will never let age hold me back from doing what I love most.

What changed my life in my 50s, was going to festivals: proper, hard core, camping festivals!  I have always loved dressing up, music, gigs and dancing but had never actually done a festival properly, for the whole four days.  So to do to my very first camping festival in my 50s was quite a challenge. But I loved it. I met so many like minded people, old and young, danced the night away with not a care in the world and actually enjoyed waking up in nature, in a tent. I was hooked!  Now I’m in my late 60s I need a camper van or boutique camping more, but it’s still an annual must do. Because, for me, it’s four hedonistic days and nights of utter freedom in a kind of temporary bubble of being whoever I want to be. And the best part of all has to be the dressing up: wearing flowers in my hair, glitter on my face, dressed as a lady bird or just doing the whole boho chic, festive look that my Mio Lanza beaded necklaces go so well with.

However old I get, I will never let age hold me back from doing what I love most: dancing, dressing up and singing along to my favourite band. I feel I’m part of a special tribe, it’s good for my soul & keeps me young!
