Or consoling divorced friends? Having, or considering having, an affair? Tired and emotional and generally depressed? If you've answered 'yes' to more than half of these questions, then congratulations, you are officially experiencing 'midlife'. That is, middle age, the autumn years, the beginning of the end. The question is, are you surviving it? Getting the meagre most out of it? Probably not. Embracing everything from blogging and Boden to wine and worry lines, Rye bread, infidelity and Ikea, The Midlife Manual is your very own guide to getting through the middle years more gracefully. Its aim is to make you feel less alone during this testing time. It will make you laugh. It may at times even be genuinely helpful.

This is nostalgia – an emotion scientists believe is unique to humans. The word derives from the Greek ‘nostos’ (returning home) and ‘algos’ (pain or ache)
While you wilt in the desert heat, your elderly relative, supposedly at death’s door, strides through wadis and around mosques getting very excited about things even older than she is. Before long, one ancient ruin has started to look pretty much like another.
When you were younger you were so damn radical you refused to eat South African apples
