One of the truly lovely aspects of being an empty nester and having the kids sorted once and for all is that you can travel more and go to places you always dreamed of loitering in. Like saving up and heading off to Paris on your own for three days to visit a few art galleries and a free museum night, as opposed to consuming Disneyland Paris in a childish whirl and then coming straight home.

As I sit and compare airfares for my next sortie, this time to the Dior exhibition at the V&A in London, I'm grateful indeed at how times have changed in my favour and how easy it is for a single woman travelling solo without the ignominy or insult of being 'punished' and forced to pay an additional supplement just because you don't have a plus one.
