Product description

Synopsis

If you've ever dreamt of a new life in the country, this highly entertaining and candid account of country living might make you think again...Fresh air, rolling fields, Cath Kidston tea towels and home-baked cake -- isn't that what Martha's new life will be? Apparently not. Having upped sticks and moved her young family from the gritty city to Paradise, she discovers things aren't quite that easy. Collapsing kitchen ceilings; a plague of slugs; coffee mornings with Stepford mums and garden warfare with the neighbours are just a few of the trials. And with her husband away working in London, Martha just can't stop thinking about the sexy builder who's meant to be turning the house into her dream home!

From the Back Cover

Fresh air, lush green fields, abundant wildlife, a rambling (aka 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 neighbours
•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.
