Now on Amazon, hope you don't mind Debbie  


Thanks Jo, thats so kind of you - great review too..............and do you see me in the same light I wonder??  Tell you what, when I read it, even I didn't know some of those things were going on in Simons head.  I am also now proud to belong to a select group - that I have only just found out about when i received their "welcome to the club" face book message that has hatched a chick between their boobs - and you should have heard the domestic that went on when Simon insisted on putting it in the book!!!!!

Hope you are enjoying it Mrs WW - wonder if some of it will make you cry?

Hmmm, the film could be interesting - no, I'm not going to Google chick/boob/hatch!!

I started my copy last night and read it on the train this morning. Up to chapter 8 and very un-put-downable so far I must say!  Usually I'm nodding off by the time I get to Wimbledon, but not today.

WOW, WOW and WOW again - what a bdooly fantastic book!    

Started it yesterday evening and finished it about half an hour ago - I just couldn't put it down!  It made me laugh, it made me cry and I could also "picture" my friends Debbie and Simon in the flesh through all of it - almost hearing the words coming out of their mouths as if they were stood in front of me.

Note to Simon . . . . you need to write a follow on book!

London?  Nah, who needs it!

Maybe we need Debbie's perspective?

Good plan Jo, but unfortunately debbie can't write - doesn't have a creative bone in her body - she is very much the practicle one of the family;-)

I could not put it down!  I had to work in a nap, as I'd stayed up most of the night reading.

Mine was in the mailbox the day I posted not started it yet, reading Cricket by Candlelight at the moment.
It was a  bit damaged in transit though unfortunately, so I might get them to send a replacement.
