FIRST SENTENCE (Introduction): If you have picked up this book, you more than likely have a Grumpy Old Man to deal with.
MEMORABLE MOMENT (Page 39): My friend's husband enjoyed his new hobby of interior design so much, he got carried away with enthusiasm, and she had to wear sunglasses to walk into the kitchen. It ended up bright canary yellow and puke green. Taking it up doesn't mean they are good at it.
MY THOUGHTS: Not only a great guide as how not to murder your grumpy by keeping him from getting under your feet, this is also full of 'jokes' (most of them pretty bad it has to be said but that's more than OK with me) and interesting facts that who knows may well come in useful should you or your grumpy decide to join a quiz team which incidentally is just one of the many, many pastimes suggested in this A to Z guide of activities.
A fun book with some 700 suggestions ranging from Aviation by way of Molly Dancing through to Zumba, at less than 100 pages I wish it was longer.
KEEP IT OR NOT?: A giveaway win courtesy of the author, Carol E Wyer and blogger, Dizzy C, I'll be passing this onto another grumpy's partner who I know will appreciate it as well as ordering extra copies for all those who have their own GOM.
