About the book
What do you call a woman who's not old, and not young? Just right.

No past her best, faded round the edges or fat, rusty slag. The Certain Age is the Greatest Age, a time to lay back and enjoy the comforts of a cardi and slipper-filled existence, to pay due credit to the nutritional values of pre-packaged food, to lovingly daydream about replacing your man with a Daniel Craig lookalike. But it's not all loose-fitting clothing and fake Hollywood boyfriends, there are the pitfalls and heartaches too: working out the best fad diet, worrying about your husband's (and your own) expanding waistline, or managing to dance at a wedding without forcing all the other guests to run away screaming. From the writers and creators of Grumpy Old Women comes this beautifully illustrated, hilarious and indispensable guide for all women of a certain age, including the likes of:

  • How to identify different types of thrush in your back garden

  • A guide to the perfect packed lunch

  • Beauty on a budget - discover the wonders of Lard!

  • The miraculous Cardboard Diet

  • Dealing with ECD (Excessive Cleaning Disorder)

  • The joys of a comfy tunic

  • Thrift - the lost and forgotten hobby

    And for the more discerning:

  • Hot pictures of your favourite middle-aged TV totty - Bill Turnbull doing the gardening, James Nesbitt in tennis whites, Richard Hammond playing the guitar...
