A year in the life of a Surrey matron!
Fifty-something Constance lives a somewhat smug and complacent life in stockbroker-belt Surrey with husband Geoffrey. The one fly in her ointment is her somewhat unsatisfactory family. Rupert, good-looking and doing well as an IT specialist, shows no sign of settling down with a suitable girl and providing the grandchildren that Constance craves and Sophie, adolescent and wayward, is not the pretty, biddable daughter she expected to have. We follow a year in her life through the blogs she writes in her "new" computer", a year which brings many surprises and unforeseen changes to this ideal situation. Jilly Bond reads the story beautifully, and the humour and tongue-in-cheek description of the ups and downs that Constance has to deal with will have you smiling, and occasionally laughing aloud.
