really liked it
bookshelves: funny, non-fiction
Read in December, 2008

Hmmm -- what to say? She whines and complains about her life, her kids, her husband, but she clearly and dearly loves all of the above and she is damn funny! Here's the premise: ex-journalist, now mummy to 3 children under the age of 5, moves with husband to remote spot in northern England. Ex-journalist loves London which is where her husband has to be much of the time, commuting to work while she wrangles a newborn, ailing parents, home renovators, sick kids, boisterous kids, sweet kids, bullied kids. Anyone who has survived life with small children will howl with laughter. Others will make sure their birth control is up to date.
