Is the famous stiff upper lip his only protection? 

A friend in America e.mailed a question " How's your day been?" I though it might be fun to respong with a diary account of my day as I imagined she'd like it to be with me having a Title. She loved it and asked for more. As an author herself she suggested I should create a book and after much pushing from her and my wife who pinched each piece as bedtime reading, I finally gave in. And so it was born.

The book is a joy to read. The intricate and funny ways in which the characters are portrayedput a smile on your face. especially when described conducting themselves in those typical English sites and period. A must for Angela Thirkell and Anthony Trollope fans.
