I've actually done it! I've kept up my diary for over a year. I may not have grown very much spiritually, nor have I been hailed as the next British supermodel, but I have gained a fiancE, even if he is football mad. And to cap it all, I weigh half a stone less than I did this time last year. Welcome back to Theodora's world. Now a bit older but not much wiser, thirty-something Theodora Llewellyn begins her second year as a diarist. And as usual, the results are endearing, hilarious and delightfully human. Joy, bliss, ecstasy! Have just tried my holiday clothes on and they are actually too big! What a fabulous excuse to go and buy some new ones. Unfortunately, bank account doesn't agree. Saving to get married is such a nuisance. In her search for life, love and a plentiful supply of chocolate, Theodora discovers that the course of true love never runs smoothly, especially when a voice from the past precipitates a crisis. But fear not -- Theodora's humor and wit are up to the challenge. In the end, just one question remains unanswered: Exactly how much vitamin C is there in a chocolate orange?
