A thoroughly enjoyable read for people of all ages and stages Slippin' on the Lino tells everyday tales of living to which we all relate. Jane Grieve writes about Sam, Louisa and Jock. Close your eyes, change the names, and they will fit your current or past experiences. The Grieve domestic escapades took place in Australia; are household concerns similar the world over? It makes an interesting comparison. Slippin' on the Lino tells it as it is in Australia. In Slippin' on the Lino, Jane spills the beans on the truth behind the closed doors of parenting; doors which, for her, emitted all kinds of noises including laughter, crying, roars of frustration, squeals of delight and actually, quite an alarming variety of animal noises if truth be told; which it is, in Slippin' on the Lino.
