    Don't harass her about parasailing or taking Italian language courses. Forget about suggesting she join a gym. Marie Sharp may be a little creaky in the bones as she heads toward the big 6-0, but she's fine with it. She would rather do without all the moving-to-Florida-bicycling-across-Mongolia-for-the-hell-of-it hoopla that her friends insist upon. She's already led an exciting life: she came of age in the 1960s, after all.

    Marie is turning 69 this year, but there are no signs of her slowing down - she has a new lodger (very into conspiracy theories), an intractable iPhone to wrestle with, and a trip to India to plan! As usual the year brings plenty of challenges as well as opportunities. Marie is burgled, which sends the street into uproar. Ex-husband David is still around and getting rather too close for comfort.

    Marie may be 'getting on a bit' but it's certainly not getting her down. She's working part time so there are more hours each day to enjoy life. She has her friends. She has Pouncer, the cat, as well as a darling grandson. And she has Archie to share her bed.

    Too young to be whisked away by a Stannah Stairlift or to enjoy the luxury of a walk-in-bath, Marie Sharp is horrified when a friend suggests she join a bookclub as she turns 60. Bookclub people feel they must poke their brain with a pointed stick to keep it working - they're as bad as oldies who cycle across Mongolia in their 80s or paraglide in their 90s. As far as Marie is concerned, they're tragic failures who haven't come to terms with ageing.

    Ironside und Hoger: Dreamteam! Marie Sharp startet ein neues Tagebuch. Seit einiger Zeit blüht die Beziehung zu ihrem geschiedenen Mann David wieder auf. Ihr neunjähriger Enkel Gene ist häufig bei ihr zu Besuch und bringt sie stets auf den neuesten Stand der technischen Entwicklungen, bis Marie sich schließlich ein Smartphone zulegt. Und auch sonst erwarten sie allerlei Turbulenzen: Der eigenartige, aber attraktive Esoteriker und Buchhändler Robin wird ihr Untermieter, und sie wird Opfer eines Einbruchs.

    Älter ist wie jünger, nur besser! Mit einem neuen Jahr beginnt Marie Sharp auch ein neues Tagebuch. Kurz vor ihrem 67. Geburtstag ist sie fest entschlossen, endlich mehr für ihre Gesundheit zu tun. Doch dann ertastet sie etwas Merkwürdiges an ihrem Bauch, bestimmt ein Symptom für … ja, für was nur? Gut, dass Marie genug Dinge hat, die sie vom Grübeln abhalten. Da wäre zum Beispiel der gut aussehende Untermieter, der offensichtlich etwas zu verbergen hat. Oder dieses „soziale Netzwerk", in das ihre Freunde plötzlich ständig seltsame Dinge schreiben. Und nicht zuletzt eine neue, völlig verrückte Nachbarin … In all dem Trubel wird eines schnell klar: Marie ist nicht mehr die Jüngste - und das ist auch gut so!
