The cornice wasn’t the only new word to make its way into my home-owner’s glossary. Just the other day I found out there is a ‘coping guy’. I was at Outdoor Leisure World or some colossal load of horse manure like that, chatting to the pool ‘consultant’ and he said, ‘We’ll send over the coping guy.’ I was shocked. I’ve had five kids to three different blokes and only now they tell me there’s a coping guy. Some sort of super dude who can handle demanding, difficult and obstreperous women like me.

Following hot on the heels of her successful and wickedly funny What I Would Do If I Were You and Boyfriends We’ve All Had (But Shouldn’t Have), comes Home Truths, a laugh-out-loud examination of 'Home' by comedian Mandy Nolan. For anyone who has ever dreamt of owning, building, renovating or perhaps bulldozing their home, or who have actually done it and survived, this collection of witty insights and reflections on what constitutes home will be compulsory reading.

The funniest book I've read in years! I'm building a new home in Ballina which makes the chapter on display homes hilarious but really accurate telling the world to buy this very book. Have purchased 4 copies as Xmas presents! Has Mandy written any other books? I'm a fan 😍Demercman
