Publisher's Summary

Marie is turning 69 this year, but there are no signs of her slowing down - she has a new lodger (very into conspiracy theories), an intractable iPhone to wrestle with, and a trip to India to plan! As usual the year brings plenty of challenges as well as opportunities. Marie is burgled, which sends the street into uproar. Ex-husband David is still around and getting rather too close for comfort. Marie's cat, Pouncer, is starting to look rather peaky (her conspiracy-theorist lodger is convinced someone is poisoning him). And, probably worst of all, it seems Gene is getting too old to want to hang out with his old granny anymore. Maybe learning to graffiti and speak street slang will help win him back.

Full of Virginia Ironside's inimitable wit, and featuring plenty of popular characters from this series, this is a hilarious and touching look at getting older from one of Britain's best observers of relationships.

    "LOVE the story line!"
    Would you listen to No, Thanks! I'm Quite Happy Standing! again? Why?

    Yes, although I cannot tolerate the narrator. I will get used to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Marie because she is just spot on about life!


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Nothing. The voices are ghastly.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the story too much to not listen! Love the series!!
