About Me

Thanks for stopping and checking out Best Before End Date.

My name is Sharon and this is my little space where I talk about my views and experiences on midlife — warts and all. I have two grown up sons and a wonderful husband who I refer to as Mr. Bbed. We’ve been together 31 years and celebrated our silver wedding anniversary earlier this year.


I started this blog in mid February 2017.

I use it to talk about life in an empty nest, travelling, eating out, beauty, fashion, issues I feel strongly about and family. We still love holidays with our kids. There’s something about travel as four adults that I love.

The menopause.

Notice how I gave that it’s own line? Oh yes .. lots to share about that.

We are busy renovating a Victorian semi so expect   tales of woe but also a love of tiles, cushions and sofas.

Oh, and my gallery wall that I’ve recently started putting together. I’m so Instagram!

Oh and gin — I like it a lot. 🍸


P.S. My kids think it’s hilarious that I chose a blog name where the letters actually look like a bed —- Bbed — I have a feeling they are trying to tell me something …. zzzzz
