Lovereading view...

An antidote to all those programmes and books about how to make your home look like the pages of a style magazine or how you must look immaculate while juggling 3 kids, housework and a job. Suddenly the women that find themselves constantly trying to live up to this perfect lifestyle can throw off the guilt and discover they are not alone. In fact there is a club devoted to the “Non-Domestic Goddess” and its members are increasing! This hilarious book based on Deborah Ross’s newspaper column is a welcome reprieve from the “goddesses” who want to save us from our slovenly ways.

Always Go to Bed on an Argument by Deborah Ross

Here are Mrs Ross’s handy tips on every aspect of household management: dressmaking, skincare, fashion and beauty, dealing with blackened ovenware, cookery, childcare, getting a ‘lifestyle’ if you suspect you don’t have a proper one. A genuinely hilarious yet original approach to modern day domestic life where we don’t all actually live up to the media pushed view of having fabulous bodies, accomplished kids, amazing parenting skills, ideal jobs, harmonious marital relationships.

OR indeed the time in which to correct all of these downfalls! She’s also good on how NOT to find spiritual fulfilment in TK Maxx… and on how to cure a nasty case of Cometetitis! Read, learn and weep with laughter…
