“Lorraine Kelly is the poster girl for living your best life when you hit your fifties” As the new editor of woman&home, one of the best bits of my job is doing reader research. For the past few weeks I’ve been travelling around the country meeting the most impressive bunch of women – all readers or potential readers of w&h. This generation of midlife women are incredible and I feel so lucky to be in my fifties right now. The one thing we all have in common is our determination to make the most of things. We may be heading into uncertain times in 2018, but that won’t stop us getting stuff done and grabbing every opportunity. With this in mind, I’d like to give a big welcome to our new…

“i’m starting a new chapter”

When Lorraine Kelly, 58, walks into a room, it’s impossible not to have a smile on your face. She bounces into our shoot with a warmth and energy that’s infectious, despite having been up since 5am to present her ITV breakfast show. Then she makes a request that reminds us that actually, she’s just like us. “Would it be possible to get a flat white?”, she asks in that familiar Scottish accent. Even the queen of breakfast TV needs her daily caffeine fix. But there’s a special reason Lorraine currently has a spring in her step; after three decades on the breakfast sofa, she’s landed a coveted spot as co-host of BBC One’s brand new Saturday night show, Wedding Day Winners . Alongside comedian Rob Beckett, it’s Lorraine’s job to encourage…

allison pearson our brilliant new columnist on the modern midlife woman

I often find myself at the bottom of the giant to-do list I’ve been thinking about this huge advantage men have over women. There’s the larger pay packet for doing exactly the same job. Oh, and not having to join a queue of 49 during the interval at the theatre because you can wee standing up. But that’s not the advantage I’m talking about here. No, where men really score over us women is in this amazing power they have: they don’t notice anything needs doing. If you’re female you never stop noticing. From the second we wake up to the moment we’re boneless with exhaustion and heading up to bed, our empathy receptors are attuned to the needs of others. The Mummy Brain That Never Sleeps constantly presses the servants’ bell.…

You strike up a conversation and she seems nice enough. Later, on your way home, you have a long conversation with your partner about her; her outfit, her behaviour, the fact that she seemed a bit smug. Admit it, we all do it. It feels harmless and it can be a lot of fun. And is it any wonder? Look around – never before has judgement of others been so public or acceptable. Perhaps your guilty pleasure is watching hapless show contestants get fired or eliminated. Or…
