(An ode to Mary and Giles)
The hole left by my audio book grows larger by the day.
A witty piece by normal folk with lively things to say.
A chapter every morning had brightened up my life,
With all those cheeky anecdotes from Giles and Mary, his wife.
The Diary Of Two Nobodies
From the Stars of Gogglebox.
I didn’t realise when it began,
But I’d opened Pandora’s box.
I felt I’d got to know them well, and coming to the end,
I knew a sense of sadness like waving off a friend…
I’ll no longer read murder mystery or romantic fluffy styles.
I want part two of the diaries, written by Mary and Giles!
I don’t usually wax lyrical with my book reviews but I absolutely loved listening to this book. Witty sometimes poignant anecdotes voiced by these two very old school eccentrics, straight from their lovely Wiltshire Cottage. A thoroughly charming listen.
