My midlife reinvention from office-bound executive to dynamic media entrepreneur has, predictably, not been easy but it has been incredibly inspiring and life-affirming. Yet this morning a friend raised the ugly possibility that it was all doomed - because of my birth certificate.

At 41, I had a baby. Followed 17 months later by another... and all the life-skewing, skin-flaying emotions they have brought with them... so, what next? I set up my own business and Big Fish Little Fish Productions - running family club events on weekend afternoons - was born. A micro-festival for the post-rave generation of parents and children.

Are we just being spoiled whiners, as older generations would no doubt label us? I'm not so sure.
