`The book is written in such an honest and open-hearted way that I got the distinct impression Margaret was talking directly to me. It proved a delightful trip down memory lane.' --Hull Daily Mail John Weller
Working below stairs in 1920s London, sixteen-year-old Margaret’s mind turns to finding a man. But it’s hard to look beguiling when you’re elbow deep in dishwater. . .See all Product description

While it does contain some interesting sociological insights, it wasn't the book I was hoping for. In among the stories of the author's life there is just a bit too much of her giving her views on everything under the sun, from marriage to O levels. I was quite glad when I reached the end.
HER STORY OF RISING FROM BEING A SCULLERY MAID TO THE COOK IS FASCINATING.
HER DESCRIPTIONS ARE SO VIVID YOU CAN PICTURE HER STORY SCENE BY SCENE.
ALSO A FAB INSIGHT TO HOW THE OTHER HALF LIVED IN 20-30S.DON'T WANT TO SAY TOO MUCH
AND RUIN THE BOOK FOR YOU.
IF YOU HAVE A LOVE OF THE 20S UP THEN THIS IS FOR YOU.
BEWARE ADDICTIVE -YOU'LL NEVER HAVE THE TEA ON THE TABLE ON TIME.
