Duncan bought a second-hand bicycle using money he got for his thirty-eighth birthday.

Three years later, Duncan is competing in the Tour de France on a bicycle that cost more than the deposit for his first flat.

Duncan has forgotten what he is trying to prove.

At last, a handy Ladybird guidebook for that difficult middle-section of life.

Life is short, and we end up in the middle of it all too soon…with a big red Ferrari, a toy boy, a shark-tooth necklace and a pair of leather trousers on.

Or worse, standing in B&Q on a Sunday, looking at a tub of boat varnish and realised with horror that you will never own a boat (even though you have never wanted to own a boat).

But relax, with this guidebook in hand, you will find your way through and make it out the other side alive.

"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.

“Too close”

Very amusing, although a little too close to the bone!
