  • c2010. Not what I was expecting but a really quick read so no problem. Glad I got it from the library though. I like Jenny Eclaire and empathise with a lot of what she says. Certainly some simple home truths in this book. A keeper - nah. Under the War on Waste - "Make things last longer by adding milk or vinegar. This works particularly well with milk or vinegar."


  • Amusing read, I had a lot of fun with it, some really black sort of humour going on. While I AM old and grumpy (although I've never particularly identified as a woman), none of these experiences really apply to me (because I'm neither white nor living in Britain, probably), so the experience was really like watching funny aliens doing things. Also heteronormativity. But hey.



  • Humourous, at times a trifle excessive, but a good read if you need a little cheering up at the end of a long, frustrating day.
