How Not to Be a Domestic Goddess: Always Go to Bed on an Argumentby Deborah Ross
Synopses & Reviews
Here are Mrs Ross's handy tips on every aspect of household management: dressmaking, skincare, fashion and beauty, dealing with blackened ovenware, cookery, childcare, getting a 'lifestyle' if you suspect you don't have a proper one. A genuinely hilarious yet original approach to modern day domestic life where we don't all actually live up to the media pushed view of having fabulous bodies, accomplished kids, amazing parenting skills, ideal jobs, harmonious marital relationships. OR indeed the time in which to correct all of these downfalls! She's also good on how NOT to find spiritual fulfilment in TK Maxx... and on how to cure a nasty case of Cometetitis! Read, learn and weep with laughter...
Based on her popular column appearing in London's "Daily Mail," this laugh-out-loud book is a collection of tongue-in-cheek snippets of advice on marriage and parenting from award-winning columnist and interviewer Ross.
Domestic goddesses, your time is up! The slackers are back . . .
"Full of sophisticated wit."-The Spectator
"One of those truly laugh-out-loud books which you won't be able to put down."-Lancashire Evening Post
Some people have fabulous bodies and accomplished kids and amazing parenting skills and ideal jobs and harmonious marital relationships. This book is not for them. It is for the rest of us: we, the 99 percent of the population who are not so blessed and cannot decide whether to laugh or cry.
