Now about that book I’m reading

I was given three books two Christmases ago and hadn’t picked up any of them.
That changed a couple of nights ago when I thought maybe I ought to make the effort and do something different to blogging or playing my computer at cribbage.

The story revolves around three women, one 50, one 40 and one 30, so each has an introductory chapter.
The 50 year old discovers her husband is wanted for fraud at her special birthday party, and surprise, surprise, when the police arrive, he’s done a runner leaving her with a houseful of unwanted guests at a party she didn’t want in the first place.
The 40 year old goes into labour on her birthday and I laughed out loud at the narrative about a Barbie doll would get stuck ‘down there’ trying to get out, as the plastic boobs would get in the way!
The 30 year old is bridesmaid at her best friend’s wedding, and a friend of the groom makes a play for her. She’s elated as she’s a curvy lady and has never had a boyfriend.
We have a Bridget Jones ‘big knicker moment’ when she goes off to the ladies to remove her tummy control tights, where from the confines of a cubicle she overhears her friend slagging her off because she wants to dump her as she’s ‘fat’ and doesn’t fit in with her thin friends. She’s devastated, and when she confronts them, it turns out her ‘best friend’ had told her groom about her still being a virgin and he had enlisted the help of the potential lover to ‘get it out of her system’.

Now we continue by going back a month…………………………….
Can’t wait for bedtime! Full review will follow when I finish it.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
