20 years ago Hyacinth Bucket kept a diary. In it she plans her social events she attends or is hosting. Including in this diary is her day to day musings. From times spent out in the country at their residence at Marsden Hall and the days spent in town at "The Avenue" we get a glimpse into Hyacinth's world.

As Hyacinth talks about her neighbours Elizabeth and Emmet, the seldom calls of precious Sheridan, her sisters, Onslow and her husband Richard who seems to be spending a lot of odd hours away

Pretty boring reading. The Richard storyline was interesting though. Was he lying? I think he was. We'll never find out though lol.

Certainly just brain candy, but a nice easy relaxing and funny way to wind down the year's reading. I'll probably finish it before breakfast.
