It’s normal for your washing machine to get more action than you, right?
I wake up, bleary-eyed. It’s been two years, six months and three hours since I last shaved my legs, and the llama-patterned knickers I’m wearing have seen better days.
We have seven minutes before the kids wake up, and my husband shuffles closer. ‘Ouch,’ he says, a piece of Lego sticking into his back.
Then, a light comes on in the landing. Small footsteps creep down the stairs. A little voice screams, ‘IS SOMEONE COMING TO MAKE BREAKFAST?!’
All hope of having some ‘alone time’ is replaced with wondering if we’ve run out of Cheerios, thinking about the overflowing laundry, and remembering that I forgot to take out the recycling. Again.
Just a typical Monday morning for the Morton family…
Except today, when I go downstairs in my dressing gown, I find something. Something belonging to my husband. Something that definitely wasn’t in the wedding vows. And it’s either going to make us… or break us.
There are funny books that make me smile and there are hilarious books that make me laugh out loud. For me this one definitely belongs in the latter category.
It goes without a doubt that homour is subjective. What makes one laugh, leaves the other wondering why it’s funny. I think if I would write a book, humour is the most difficult to get across to an audiance. I guess everybody already had the feeling once or twice of telling a joke and nobody laughing … Painful, right?
This story is filled with funny parts and I totally adored it.
My mother tongue is not English and I can assure you that I learned a lot of new words concerning anatomy 😉
Humour is not the only thing this book is about. It also contains emotions such as love, family, friendship and trust.
A great story and I am looking forward to reading other books by this author. 5 stars.
Thank you, Kristen Bailey and Bookouture.
