Read full description of the books:



This book, which has spent time in the boxed up book-overflow in my attic, has been a charmingly, warm, and fun re-discovery. Peg Bracken’s sense of humour is zany, exuberant, and well-paced. As a Book of Days this volume is a failure, because I find myself always wanting to read on, and on, to read more; (cover to cover this time around); re-acquainting myself with a dear old friend. I doubt I’d ever have the necessary willpower to read this book one ‘day’ at a time. The threads of advice on coping with the newly introduced Metric System (this book is an English translation of the American text) had me shaking with laughter aloud; and as for the advice for July 22: … “… Butter the bread on one side quite heavily. Don’t use margarine – the only good use for margarine is for children’s suppositories. …” say no more!

In the style of a common-place book, the author very cleverly employs not only contributions from real, live people (identified at the back of the book); but also from beautifully fashioned fictional witty, contributors whose memorable and educative inventions arise from Peg Bracken’s own vivid imagination.

As a consequence, both recipes and advice are imparted painlessly and memorably to the reader; for example (p.67): “ November 25 … Now lytle birds do search for seeds in the hard fields, and it is a time to replenish the Birdfeeder and quarantine the Cat …”

Well, having fed copious quantities of sunflower seed to the garden birds this last Winter through to Spring; the very last creatures I had anticipated taking up residence in the bluetits’ nestbox has been a charmingly entertaining colony of Bombus hypnorum! Time, perhaps, to read Betty Macdonald’s humorous “Me and the Bee” again? I wonder where my copy’s gone?

I haven’t yet tried cooking any of the recipes suggested (by Peg Bracken, not of Bombus!!!). “Green Pancakes” (p.66) looks very promising: basically incorporating grated courgette (zucchini) and thyme into a blini-sized pancake. Why have I never thought of that for myself before?

Although this book is sub-titled, “for the harried house-person” (what a truly ghastly, clumsy word ‘house-person’ is!); I find myself speculatively sizing-up how much of the contents of this book might actually appeal to a man; or whether the publisher was merely anxious to appear in-step with 1970’s women’s liberation? I don’t remember reading much talk about the wrong-end of babies in this book; so hopefully there do exist a few cost- and time- conscious men out there, who, possessing an off-beam sense of humour, will read this book up & tell me?
