How do I get rid of the mosquitoes infesting the garden? Should my kids be drinking so much? And why the f*** doesn’t anyone in North London know how to clean up after their dog?

These are just some of the questions plaguing Nina Stibbe as she makes her return to London, reflecting on what it means to turn your whole life around aged sixty. Whether it’s dinner parties with the great and the good of the London literati, micromanaging her son’s online dating profile, or avoiding peak times at the launderette, Nina Stibbe’s utterly inimitable wit is ever present throughout this diary forty years after the Love, Nina years.
