It just didn't know it.
First there was Mrs Dale's Diary; then came Bridget Jones's. Now we're delighted to announce the safe delivery of Alison Turner's.
Alison is an about-to-be-fifty-year-old divorcee. She likes neither prospect. In her diary she records her innermost thoughts about life, ex-husbands, the bimbo, and the fact that manufacturers of skin care products for the over-fifties, in the design of their labels, have not taken into consideration the fact that with increasing age comes decreasing eye-sight.
You can listen to the first chapter of Alison's diary, beginning on the eve of her fiftieth birthday, over on Jellycast NOW!
It's about 28 minutes of listening time in all, but Alison (and I) would be really pleased if some people listened to at least some of it and reported back their thoughts.
