Hi there
Whilst I may be over 50, I also didnt have children (like many career minded modern mums) till later in life! Now Im also divorced, so a single mum ... meaning that unlike some Im not free to take up travel offers or go to the theatre when ever I want to!
I have two children aged 15 and 19 (now at uni) who naturally come first in my life, but this also means Im locked into school terms too!
So for me it is the little offers that mean a lot - like
Free coffees out, two for one offers on little treats, discounts on the essentials - dull I know but hay thats life! (although I agree discounts on house, car and travel insurance are also very useful too; these dont make life very interesting on day to day basies. Regards Stella
