In this inaugural episode of Menopause, Marriage and Motherhood, I talk about some of the ups and downs of life.⁠

I have to say, this was by far the most difficult and confronting episode to do; I don’t like talking about myself.

I suspect that being English has something to do with it: it’s just not the done thing to talk about oneself, lol.

And it’s more than a little terrifying to talk publicly about some of the things that have happened: buying a mansion when we were broke (it was literally a mansion), going bankrupt, business failures and successes, picking ourselves up and starting again, and doing all that while trying to bring up four kids.

It’s actually taken me MONTHS to record this and even now, I’m really not happy with the whole thing. Actually, a good description would be terrified and confronted!

Oh well, time to get over myself because some days, all you can do is laugh. 😂💖
