Our Book Review
As soon as you start to read this book you are taken into a world of smiles and laughter. For me this started with the very first story of the 'dreaded hair wax' situation, I seriously laughed out loud with the images created, just the very thought of it. Other favourites include reading about the author's entrepreneurial brother Dan, tips on how to annoy hubbie while watching football and the coupon queen of shopping at Walmart, which when you read it, it is something I think most of us would have liked to do but wouldn't have dared!
The enjoyment continues as the author writes about her everyday life and family situations and some not 'everyday' in a fun, light and honest way, she has a knack of telling the tale with fondness in such a witty way, the odd naughty word is used but is easily diluted in the humour.
The short stories, split into different categories of family and life, are easily read and will have you hooked as you cannot help yourself but want to read more from the author's world. I read the book in two nights but my advice would be to read a couple of the stories a night to keep this treasure of a book for longer. This is a great book to be shared around the family and a reminder of what really matters in life.
With so much pressure in everyday life this is a perfect escape and a great way to have a good chuckle.
