Publisher's Summary


For over 10 years, Sue Townsend has written a monthly column for Sainsbury’s Magazine, which covers everything from hosepipe bans and Spanish restaurants to writer’s block and the posh middle-aged woman she once met who'd never heard of Winnie the Pooh.
Collected now for the first time, these columns from one of Britain’s most popular and acclaimed writers are funny, perceptive, and touching.

A bit of a let down

I didn’t realise this book is a collection of short (real life) stories. I was hoping it was a novel much like ‘The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year’. I was expecting another good laugh but was sorely disappointed.

The narrator, Carolyn Oldershaw, has a dreary, depressing voice and I was often left feeling down after listening. Can’t say I would recommend this book if you’re looking for something light hearted and fun.

bring back adrian mole

really dull, nothing at all like the adrian mole books. Just endless short scenarios that weren't even remotely funny.
