Hi I’m Lorraine, here’s what This Fifty Something Life is all about.

When life seems to be flying by and your kids are older teenagers doing their own thing, what do you do?  Well, besides getting Ralf our crazy rescue pup, I’ve discovered there’s millions of interesting things to do and see all around us. We just need to get out there and find them.

Wether it’s making planters for the garden to sprucing up the home. Finding sustainable fashion to feeling good mid fifty.  A Volunteer and Women’s Institute committee member, often taking part in community events. I’ll be sharing what I discover along the way.

For me I’ve decided fifties is the new ‘get out there and do something’ age. Using life skills to make changes for good.

I enjoy organising social media for our Women’s Institute group and the photo above is from my interview in WI Life magazine.
