My Not So Perfect Life

Greetings, blogosphere.  Is there anyone out there?  You may wonder for my happiness/sense of self given the title of this post, but rest assured, all is ok in my world.
I turned 35 one month ago, and as one of my birthday gifts(which I'd asked for) I received Sophie Kinsella's My Not So Perfect Life.  I've been a fan of hers for years now, particularly the Shopaholic series, which I think I've mentioned in this blog before.  In the novel, we meet Katie who is living the high life in the Big Smoke, with an Instagram feed to prove it.  Katie is in awe of her boss Demeter who, in her eyes, is achingly cool.  When her job comes to an end and already short of cash, she has to return to her parents' home in Somerset.  Wanting to save face and keep up pretence of her London life, she tells her family she's on sabbatical.  What she doesn't realise is that Demeter will come back into her life, in a way she could never have imagined.
