Hurray For Menopause

How I used to dread the onset of menopause but I have to say all the rumours were unfounded.

thank your lucky stars that you no longer have periods. This chandelier is made entirely of tampons and I reckon I used way more than that when I had periods. Made by feminists and extremely well done I must say.
In reply to this comment by Anonymous - That Chandelier was made by Gorilla Girls in 2005 and hung at Venice Biennale. It is now a recognized piece of art from the Walsall Art Gallery. As a designer, I thought you would attribute the work. Not make it sound like you created it ... ?

OK so you get hot flushes but the countryside is full of wind farms to take yourself too.

Who would have thought it? A chandelier made entirely of tampons. Yet another menopause perk!

Only you would post a chandelier made of tampons! :-) I burst out laughing when I read it and no the way you wrote about it doesn't sound like you said it was your work...

Love the lists. Although I would put "dance in front of your kids" on the DO list :)
P.S. We all know you could have made that chandelier with one hand tied behind our back!
