Summary

A witty, heart-warming and humorous account of family life during lockdown.

In March 2020 the Prime Minister told Mrs V to shield for 12 weeks. Then for a bit longer. And just a little bit longer. No cuddles, no snogging, no tasting other people's cocktails to see if they were nicer than hers; pick a spot and stay put. This was bad news for everyone, except possibly the ice cream industry. Mrs V immediately laid claim to the dining room and created her little slice of self-isolation. From her perch in Covid Corner, she blogged about the daily ups and downs of family life in lockdown, keeping her readers laughing as the world got weirder. This book is a compilation of those posts, along with lots of extra bits and commentary. Like Mrs V, it's slightly unconventional, quirky, full of warmth (both the loving and the menopausal kind) and has a filthy sense of humour.

Struggling with the narration

I can't remember the last time I didn't finish listening to an audio book. Unfortunately, I'm finding the narration a bit too robotic. Being Scottish myself, I was so excited when this title popped up. I might go back to it and try again one day.
