1.Don't do anything rash. Consider, one minute max. Decide, one minute max. DO. Done! Keep on MOVING....!
2.Don't let your worries about the future escalate out of control. Stay in the present moment. Meditation classes are good for this. Forget thinking about nothing, GET ON WITH IT.
3.Wear mascara every day, even if you're not going out. Mascara's not a magic wand. HAIR and HEELS - top and toe with style and let the rest take care of itself.
4.Get some new clothes. LESS is MORE with clothes, get a killer dress. EVERY woman should own a Westwood.
5.Exercise - train for a Fun Run. Whoever wrote this needs to run away from themselves. Running round in circles every day is for nuts. Get an exercise ball and let it do the work - 20 sit ups 3 times a day, 10 minutes max and you're done.
6.Drink 8 glasses of water a day. Make that one bottle of champagne a day. OTT? A couple of vodka sharpeners then, or GOOD wine.
7.Get a dog. Speak to strangers NOT their dogs.
8.Go on group activity holiday or cruise. NO GROUP TOURS - ALONE is the way to meet people that are WORTH meeting.
9.Volunteer. Get a JOB, SING girl SING!
10.Join an evening class. Life's too short for papier mache clubs, get ON WITH IT, GET DOWN AND LOSE YOUR WIDIDITY *** NUMBER ONE TASK
Sally must get back out there and lose her wididity, her born-again virginity, before she crumbles into sexless middle age. But why would she want to go through the dating hell her daughter Ami was going through? With added flabby bits? The chances of a stray suddenly-single Daniel Craig type passing her way were next to zero anyway. Let alone one who'd be interested in a short, mixed-up 50 year old who had not only misplaced her waistline but was still madly in love with her dead husband.
Sally hadn't reckoned on meeting Loro, a Leonard Cohen tribute artist who sings Suzanne to the tourists on Hydra, the fashionable Greek island of choice for old hippies. They're the same age and get along well. If she could, she would, but would he? Why would he when he has the pick of girls much younger than she? Realising that if she wants something she has to go for it, Sally tries to pluck up the courage to leave her isolated comfort zone and proposition him. Facing the possibility of humiliation and rejection square on.
A tender, moving story of a widow's journey from grief to acceptance to moving forwards in her life in a world where sex is everywhere but death is still the great taboo.
