Tales from the Ironing...Bored by Jo Chatwin

The author invites you to delve into a delicious short story compilation of chilling tales, thought provoking reads, and some hilarious moments. These quickie stories were invented for the time-strapped woman and fulfill the need for a satisfying speedy read. Learn about early childhood memories of a kid in the 60's and snigger at the Sunday school experience which would horrify modern society. Discover what happens to the rogue wart! Have you ever recycled an unwanted gift and been caught red-handed? Jan has. Read about the embarrassing consequences. The final chapters of the book concentrate on a stifling coach trip undertaken by three old biddies. You will be page turning throughout to find out what happens when two middle-aged singletons begin an affair under the disapproving glare of a trio from a bygone age. Who greased the palm of the fortune-teller and how did the three exact their revenge? The answers are revealed.
