Embracing Technology Like a ‘Pro’ in Midlife

One of my goals this year is to embrace the things that I feel can sometimes hold me back from doing what I want, need and love to do. We don't always shout about some of these things - often because we think we are the only ones that are struggling. We never are -...

Being a Bit More 1970s in 2019

There is nothing like the Christmas and New Year period for bringing out a little nostalgia in us, is there?  Time spent with family and old friends often turns to reminiscing about shared bygone days, things that we had and did and the people with whom we shared...

Year 7 Parents’ Evening – The Things We Found Useful

Last week saw us attend our first Year 7 Parents' Evening.  As fleglings - this is our first 'grown-up' Parents' Evening at Secondary School. You may have seen my recent post about the Booking System, although I must confess to having been ill-advised here.  I talked...

Welcome to Not Just The 3 Of Us, the Lifestyle Blog for those of us that want to make every minute count. This blog is all about Midlife. The joys and the challenges. I am always looking to challenge the perceptions around age and the mid-years and this is where I do it.

You will find me talking about Midlife, Family, Experiences and Home & Design here in the Lifestyle section. If you are a Business Owner, there is a separate section dedicated to Business Support.
