At 60, Britain’s oldest mum of IVF twins finally admits: I wish I had a man to help me (…)
‘I don’t think people sit you down and spell out the drawbacks of motherhood,’ she says. (…)
‘They don’t get cereal with milk any more as they throw it around and I am constantly sweeping the floor,’ she says. ‘That’s the bit that’s surprised me most.’ (…)
A more significant matter Carole has been unable to find time for is making a will. Or, indeed, making provision for someone to step in and take care of the children should anything happen to her. (…)
I point out that were her children to start families aged 30 – almost half the age she was when they were born – she would be 88 by the time she had grandchildren.
‘Oh God, would I?’ she says.

Yet another British woman that is a sandwich short of a picnic. A retired social worker! There’s the proof.
