Midlife Women and life today

Are you a Midlife woman seeking more sparkle in your life and willing to address the important issues which stifle and frustrate?

At the weekend I finally collared my husband to help me with a bit of gardening.

We have a very big garden and also an unwritten expectation that we will fulfill our individual gardening jobs.

However, there are times when I need his help, so I make sure he knows that.

And he’ll ask me when he needs my input.

That works for us.

Usually Herb deals with the heavier jobs, e.g. repairing fence panels, digging out impossible weeds and pruning hedges, whereas I grow the seedlings, plant them out and do the less strenuous maintenance.

Not everyone has this level of collaboration or cooperation with day to day tasks,
Some women are left to struggle on with chores themselves because their husbands refuse to help.

Other husbands will make a token effort but even after years of marriage can or will not do the task to their wife’s standards.
Many women have the feeling that their partner quietly ignores them, the tasks are left undone, and that eventually they will not be pestered again……

I have met plenty of midlife women, retired women who are utterly fed up with their husbands’ laziness, and since being retired their husbands seem to care even less, even when their wife is experiencing ill health and are still left to struggle alone.

In any relationship, be it with a partner, family, or friend someone may have the upper hand, someone is subservient, and plenty are fortunate to feel they have an equal standing.

The last 2 years have been a challenge for all but we have our freedoms restored, and the opportunity to live life fully.

Are you a Midlife woman struggling to enjoy the freedoms now back on offer after the limitations of the last 2 years?

I have 3 questions to ask you about life today

1.     Have you an adult child who returned to live at home, is still living with you, too comfortably, and it’s time for them to move out?

2.    Do you find yourself wanting to be more assertive with friends and family who make suggestions and assume that you will fall in with their idea?

3.    Do you struggle to be heard by your partner when you raise dissatisfaction about their level of contribution to the household chores or family responsibility, and it only ever seems to end in a row or with them storming off?

If you answered yes to any of these questions but you repeatedly find yourself frustrated with no idea how to resolve the issue and move forwards, then my:


helps you to:

  • Maintain a good relationship with your adult child as you manage the conversation to re-establish boundaries and expectations.
  • Find resolution to the key problems which make you feel uneasy and uncomfortable with your husband, friends or family now that restrictions are over.
  • Feel empowered, find your voice so that you are excited about future plans and confident that you will make the next years count.
