Hellooooo and welcome to Best Before End Date
Just a little update before we go any further … errmmm I’ve won a blog award!!! Best Newcomer 2017 at the Vuelio Blog Awards. Woo hoo!! Read a bit more about it from the awards night post I wrote up.
Back to my intro …
My name is Sharon, I’m 56 and embracing everything that midlife throws at me.
This is my little space where I talk about my views and experiences on midlife — warts and all. I live in the North East of England. I have two grown up sons and a wonderful husband who I refer to as Mr. B. We’ve been together 33 years and celebrated our silver wedding anniversary in 2017.
I started this blog mid February 2017 and as of November 2017 I am deliriously happy that I can now call it ‘award winning!’
I use it to talk about life in an empty nest, travelling, eating out, beauty, fashion, issues I feel strongly about and family. We still love holidays with our kids. There’s something about travel as four adults that I love.
Notice how I gave that it’s own line? Oh yes .. lots to share about that.
We are busy renovating a Victorian semi so expect tales of woe about the boiler, draughts and a leaky roof but also a love of tiles, cushions and sofas.
Oh, and my gallery wall that I’ve recently started putting together. I’m so Instagram!
Oh and gin — I like it a lot. 🍸
P.S. My kids think it’s hilarious that I chose a blog name where the letters actually look like a bed —- I spend a lot of time horizontal since the menopause hit me.
