I howled with laughter, tears of recognition at every bloody page. My only problem with this book was choosing who to pass it on to first. (Jenny Colgan, author of Amanda's Wedding)
Maybe hormones ate her brain. How else did Judith's husband persuade her to give up her career and move from her beloved London to Northumberland with two toddlers in tow? Pregnant with number 3, Judith is about to discover that there are one or two things about life in the country that no one told her about: that she'd be making friends with people who believed in the four horsemen of the apocalypse; that running out of petrol could be a near death experience and that the closest thing to an ethnic minority would be a redhead. Judith tries to do that simple thing that women do, make hers a happy family. A family that might live happily ever after. Possibly even up North.See all Product description

Also, I bought the Kindle edition and the lack of proofreading is frankly irritating. I don't know what scanning product they used to turn it into an e-book, but it can't tell the difference between the letter i and the number 1. And those well known Northumbrian islands, the Fame islands? Obviously where the author mingles with her celebrity friends ...
The premise - which is quite an interesting situation- is abused resulting in essentially an entitled whinge for the whole book.
It wasn't funny but it is well written and eloquent.
I somewhat resent the fact I paid this woman (who you grow less fond of with each page) for her opinion on life, but I guess thats be gamble you take with any personal book.
It was a giggle in places, not completely hilarious as the cover suggests, just like life!
Judith uprooted her urban life in London & replaced it with a country life in rural Northumberland where I'm from.
She started a diary of the daft things happening to her & decided to blog about it so it's written in diary/blog style, a date at a time. I recognised a lot of situations she'd been in & could relate to the hair pulling out frustration at times. A couple of years back we started our own renovation project so a lot of her funny builder anecdotes really rang true for me.
All in all, a good buy, I'd recommend it.
