Oh Menopause, Oh Menopause…

A funny poem about the menopause from the humour blogger, Midlife Dramas in Pyjamas

(WARNING: please excuse the F Bomb, I felt it necessary for artistic reasons!)

Oh menopause, oh menopause
You’re here at last – woohoo!
And all the things I’ve heard about
I see you’ve brought them too!

Put your feet up, make a brew
I’m told you’re here to stay.
You’re going to change my life I guess,
Well that’s what people say.

I’ve heard that there are lots of things
I’m going to get to meet.
So tell me all about it then,
Hang on I’ll take a seat.

Keep on reading!

Is it me or is it hot in here?

A funny blog post about hot flushes, from Midlife Dramas in PyjamasIt would appear that I am now entering the phase that all women look forward to with dread – the menopause. I seem to have started having, what can only be described as, beginner’s hot flushes. I go hot and my face feels red but it doesn’t last very long. What’s the chance that’s as bad as it’s going to get? Fat chance.

I ordered two fans from the internet to be ready – I’m a woman who likes to be organised. I ordered a Spanish hand-held one and a battery operated one. You can never have too many fans.

Told husband that when we’re at friends’ houses if I feel a hot flush coming on, to avoid feeling embarrassed, I’ll simply remove myself to the bathroom with my fan – until it passes.

He raised an eyebrow and replied that I’d feel more than embarrassed if I went to the bathroom, and the only sound that could be heard through the door was that of a battery operated gadget.

He’s got a point…
