The Desperate Diary of a Country Housewife
A cautionary tale about moving to the country Ever thought about fleeing the urban jungle for rural bliss in the West Country? Well think again! Fresh air, lush green fields, abundant wildlife, a rambling (a.k.a dilapidated) house may all be idyllic and lovely but not when you've got to contend with: / Discovering your home is a national slug hot spot. / Coffee mornings with unemployed lady-mums (i.e Hell). / Collapsing ceilings and leaky lavatories. / Garden warfare with the neighbour. / Being given a 'Bonnie Tyler' by the local hairdresser. Based on The Country Mole, the hugely successful Sunday Times column -- The Diary of a Desperate Country Housewife is a sharp, witty, incredibly rude and highly entertaining account of real country living.
