The A-Z guide to your 40s

This is the A-Z of being in your 40s. From south heading boobies, flipping hormones in the run up to the dreaded M-Word to daring to try something new, talking to your inner child and celebrating our saggy bits. We created this alphabetised fun list makes you chuckle. Because there’s a lot of life left in us yet isn’t there? So let’s enjoy it and make the best of what we have left before it all decays, rots and we regret it.
