This book was okay as my three stars indicate. It wasn't as light as her No thanks, I can manage Standing book (I hope I got the title right). This book included illness and death. I think it seemed more confusing than her other books. I noticed that when I misplaced my bookmark and then inadvertently ended up reading portions that I had already read, I didn't find it to be a pleasure. Some books are so good that you don't mind rereading portions, but instead I was saying, "Oh, this again." I read the entire book and then realized that I probably couldn't tell you what all those council meetings were about and just why she decided to live in a tree for 24 hours as some sort of publicity stunt for her community outreach work. I chuckled occasionally. I wasn't particularly moved by anything, even with the illness and death, until the end when she was talking with her grandson. The beautiful things children say will bring tears to my eyes, and this was no exception. There were some parts that were a bit tedious for me. Maybe a trip out of the country would have helped--I remember that I enjoyed her trip to India in the other book I mentioned. Some of her encounters with a potential boyfriend were mildly amusing. The best part for me is that Ironside's character Marie is in my age group and we do have things in common. So her books are pretty good bedtime company--on the light side--but a little bit heavier this time. I like the fact that her books read like a journal.

Virginia Ironside is well known in England for her very witty comments on life in general and getting older in particular.
She writes regular newspaper columns on everyday life which make you chuckle when you recognize yourself. She
feels like the kind of lady with whom you would enjoy sharing a cup of tea. Having enjoyed her columns in a brilliantly
funny magazine called "The Oldie", I ordered this book and was very glad I did. I laughed out loud several times at
her observations on aging gracefully - or not. Well worth the cost, which was reasonable on Amazon. If you are a
woman in the 55-85 age group, you should enjoy this one.

An easy read. Hilarious and honest about the travails of aging. A good book to gift to a friend recuperating from surgery/illness or to keep by your bedside for those nights when you toss and turn, fruitlessly chasing sleep.

This was a fun read and one could associate with everything she experienced, but it is not award winning writing. I was an easy read and good to know that you are not alone at this age! good holiday reading with no concentration required.

I related so well to the writer. Well done to her for having the honesty to write about the concerns of a mother and granny.
Drelajurus
Endearing and so wonderful to have a follow-up on Marie Sharp's life! Virginia Ironside's writing sometimes takes my breath away when she describes the inner journey of being an older woman.
Funny and entertaining
