“A shaggy boat story”

published 30/08/2006

Funny and well written

Too much of a good thing

It was that time of year again. Husband's birthday. Over the years, of which there have now been many, we have settled into a pattern of present buying.

The book ended...i wanted more!

Review of 'Narrow Dog to Carcasonne' by Terry Darlington. I was loaned this book by one of my marina mooring neighbours. We live part of the year on a narrow boat and love the life, I enjoy boating and all that it entails and when at home occasionally watch 'Water World' on Discovery channel...

“In need of a tonic?”

published 26/07/2006

Humour that 'll make you wet your pants!

More laundrey...

Then look no further! After reading this book I just had to drop'these people' an e-mail. These people being Terry, the author, Monica, his long suffering wife and Jim, the opinionated and whimsical whippet. And here's what's great; I got a return e-mail the following day telling me of the next...
