Rachel Johnson’s – Fresh Hell LIFE in NOTTING HILL GATE

Rachel Johnson’s – Fresh Hell
Third in her Notting Hill trilogy finds journalist Mimi Fleming returning from the country¬†to her old square. While she was a welly wearing country bumpkin, her neighbours have groomed and slimmed and become even younger looking. They are busy living in her house, installing double-basements and banker bashing while she is in an ex-council maisonette and falling desperately and inappropriately in lust with a younger woman. Scenes from Rachel’s own life?

    How funny, I just read this NYTimes article on whether our neighborhoods change, or we do and it was excellent for perspective!

    Just came over on recommendation of “That’s Not my Age” blog. Is the theme music meant to be ironic? While I enjoy self-depreciating humor I suppose the whole, gay man ‘camp’ them with regards to middle-aged women is a little too depreciating in 2015.

    I don’t feel old at all at 49 – I feel ultra youthful and empowered, but then I do live an ultra healthy lifestyle to take care of my body – not to compete – but because it affords me the kind of personal health and well-being that powers the rest of my life as well as sets the right example for young women. I eat what I like, I just do it wisely and miss out on NOTHING!

    Anyway, this is only my first listen. I’ll check out the other episodes. And criticism aside, I so appreciate the bravery of helping put middle-aged women’s voices out there in the world! It’s wonderful to see a representation!
