After reading Carol's book How Not to Murder your Grumpy, I was really looking forward to Grumpy Old Menopause. The book is released on 25th November and I was kindly provided with a review copy. 

Carol Wyer's sense of humour is absolutely wicked! I love it! Unfortunately the Menopause comes to all us women. This book is encouraging you to tackle the problem head on. Don't lie down and die in a pool of night sweats and hot flushes/flashes! It encourages you to get off your menopausal ass and deal with the inevitable through humour and adventure! The book lists some handy tips in alphabetical order. Some of them will leave you breathless with laughter!

Carol E Wyer has a skill many people do not possess. She can find humour in almost every situation - even one where you have to change your underwear every time you sneeze! I chuckled my way through the book, taking care not to laugh out loud too much for fear of underwear changes! This is a great little book that I managed to read in one sitting. The perfect book for taking a light hearted look at all life throws at the more mature lady. The main message in this book seems to be that getting older does not equate to losing your sense of humour or your zest for life! Well done Carol!

  1. Oh my! I am so overwhelmed by this review I can't speak (Mr Grumpy is delighted about that.) Thank you JontyBabe. Thank you very much indeed. *gulps dramatically and wipes tiny tears*.

  2. And on behalf of Acupuncturists everywhere, thank you also for mentioning our abilities on the BBC! I'm looking forward to my copy arriving.
