Coping With Parents (1989)

  • Life with a Jolly Parent is a bit like life in a holiday camp. The beds are too small and there's an outbreak of Salmonella every five minutes.

Coping With Teachers (1991)

  • Flash Teacher: How to spot: He'll be the only member of staff who drives a customized Lada.

Coping With Christmas (1999)

  • For a start, let's look at the Grotto itself. By and large these are extremely aptly named, 'Grot' meaning rubbish and 'Oh' being exclamation of disappointed surprise.

Coping with Cash (2000)

  • There are two distinct types of bike: The one you save up for and buy yourself, otherwise known as the 'Dream Machine' , and the one your parents buy for you, otherwise known as the 'Complete waste of space'.
  • It's easy to forget you are in debt to the tune of £10, and to a woman who never forgets anything. Crikey, she can even tell you which Coronation Street character was the first one to have their brain removed (Footnote: And not have it replaced by acting talent unfortunately.)

The A-Z of Absolutely Everything (1990)

  • Fishing is a jerk at one end of a line waiting for a jerk at the other end of a line.
