'PRIVATE EDUCATION IS A BRILLIANT SUBJECT AND FLETT'S ALL-SEEING EYE MISSES NOTHING. FROM 'DOWN FROM LONDON' YUMMY MUMMIES TO WHAT THE SUPER-WEALTHY WEAR AT COCKTAIL PARTIES, NO STYLE OR SOCIAL DETAIL ESCAPES HER... I REALLY ENJOYED IT' — Wendy Holden in The Daily Mail
'WITTY, POIGNANT AND WONDERFULLY OBSERVED' — The Irish Independent
''OUTSTANDING' BREEZES ALONG, TAPPING INTO THE ZEITGEIST IN ITS REFERENCES TO THE POLITICS OF PRIVATE EDUCATION, THE LIFESTYLES OF THE SUPER-RICH, REVENGE-PORN AND SAME SEX ADOPTION. [FLETT'S] PORTRAYAL OF FAMILY LIFE AND ENGAGING CHARACTERS ARE LIKELY TO STRIKE A CHORD.'

HELLO. The great irony of having been a 'Grumpy Old Woman' on the telly when I was neither particularly Grumpy nor very Old is that having now reached my fifties I am, inevitably, a bit of both. And though I arrived well prepared there were still a few things about fiftyness that came as a surprise. If you'd like to know more about the evolution of 'Fifty Sense' — my womanifesto, if you will — then hop on over to the first entry (scroll right down on The Blogs page). If, however, you are a returning visitor then I thank you. Either way, do let me know what you think. KATE x (Twitter: @kateflett/email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
