When baby laughs at your cooking...



My gourmand baby blew a raspberry at my homemade oat biscuits and swiped them onto the floor with a derisive laugh. She had a point, really. They weren't biscuits so much as oat flakes squidged hopefully into mashed banana. 

It summed up the day, really. One of those long drawn out ones, where you catch yourself staring into space and then saying, "right!" a lot, as if the word might rev up you... Read more of this blog post »

The Hen Party by Emily Benet
"Brilliantly funny and a terrific story featuring the vagaries of a reality tv show. Loved it. Well worth the price of admission. The bit with the hay wrap had me rolling on the floor!
Recommended."

The plot is a bit ridiculous - and I had to suspend my belief a little - but it made for an entertaining read. I enjoyed the insight into the trials of getting acting jobs and the dialogue was snappy! I'll be reading more from Jane Fallon...

I loved it. Like the blurb says, it really is perfect for lovers of Liane Moriarty. It's set in a suburb where everyone's lives are intertwined. There's plenty to keep the reader's interest with different characters telling their story and revealing ...more

I'd been recommended this book by so many people, I bought it without even reading the blurb. I though the title suggested a happy upbeat story about some cheery woman called Eleanor. In fact, it turned out to be much more layered and original novel, ...more

I was after a fast-paced domestic drama a la Liane Moriarty and Amazon suggested this book. It didn't disappoint. It was well-written, with convincing characterisation and I wanted to know what happened. It's made me want to read more from Kerry Fish ...more

Like other people have said, and not that I watch much Reality TV, but I don't think I'll ever look at one the same! Rings so, so true. Everything is just manipulation for maximum entertainment. Hilarious and brutal.

“Oh how lovely to hear the birds!’ an elderly friend recently exclaimed. I smiled, ‘Yes, isn’t it?’ Actually it reminded me of living in my ex’s flat; those early mornings being woken up by the incessant chirping of baby birds and myself at the window with an air rifle. Good times. Because that’s the other thing about working alone for long periods of time, you begin to get nostalgic about all the rubbish.”
Emily Benet, Shop Girl Diaries
