Product Description

About the Author

Sally Hartland was born in 1959 in Knutsford, Cheshire where she lived until 1981 when she married and moved to London. Sally began writing when her fascination with mnemonics culminated in her first book Big Elephants Are Useful. This prompted further research into the droll topic of euphemisms and as a result Mousewives & Muffintops emerged. Sally now lives in Bath with her husband, two daughters and elderly labrador.

WHAT A GREAT LITTLE BOOK FOR ALL AGES AND A GREAT GIFT FOR XMAS. I LOVED ALL THE DIFFERENT SECTIONS AND A LOT OF WORK HAS GONE INTO THIS. AFTER A DINNER WITH FRIENDS WE SAT AND READ OUT SOME OF THE SECTIONS AND IT WAS A LOT OF FUN DISCUSSING THE CONTENTS ESPECIALLY 9(THE CALL OF NATURE) EUPHEMISMS. I JUST LOVED IT. A BOOK THAT CAN BE PICKED UP AND ENJOYED AT ANY TIME AND BY ANYONE. WELL WORTH BUYING.

Grab this one! It will definitely provide some welcome mirth over the festive season for you and yours. Check out Followers of Fashion and Relationships for some real gems and perhaps face some unhappy truths (was I a slummy mummy?!) in Girls Girls Girls.

Made me realise how 70s my own double speak is. I had no idea how many much more modern ways there are to get my message across!
