This is a wife. She looks happy, doesn’t she? That is because she is on her second glass of wine.

Wives are very complicated – do not try to understand one without reading this handy, large-print instruction manual. You have much to learn. 

You will need to get to grips with chocolate, shopping, wine and the fact that your wife is always right. You will need to learn the art of deciphering hints and clues quickly; otherwise holidays and birthdays may not run smoothly. 

If all else fails, and especially if she really wants to talk, retreat to the roof and fix some roof tiles.

"It’s enough to make Peter and Jane choke on their watercress sandwiches." – The Independent

Do you ever find yourself longing for a simpler time? That time before the horrors of speed-bumps, automated supermarket checkouts and infernal switchboard options; the days when telephones had wires and a reassuring rotating dial, a tweet meant birdsong and Brexit might possibly have meant a new kind of breakfast cereal?

Fear not, for you are not alone. What you need are the new manuals for our times, simple primers for the everyday predicaments we find ourselves in.

Dear friend, what you need is a Ladybird.

“The Wife”

This Ladybird book is a bit of fun that harks back to the old Ladybird books that we all used to read as youngsters. Brought a wry smile to all that read it.
