“Personally I think happiness is highly over rated and I actually prefer the misery that life throws at you. It’s more familiar to us up here in Yorkshire. We don’t need happiness, just a strong cup of Builders Tea and a slap on the back and we’re good to go.”
City girl turned country bumpkin, Jess; is no stranger to life’s ups and downs. Now in her mid thirties, and not the slightest bit concerned about settling down, she decides to go it alone in the Yorkshire Dales, working as a self employed, rural farm secretary. She is perhaps best described as James Herriot meets Bridget Jones.
You are about to take a peek through the amusing daily lens that Jess cares to call her life, set in the rugged Yorkshire Dales. Unfortunately however, the Yorkshire Dales is not quite ready for her no nonsense approach to life and ruffling a few feathers is the least of her concerns.
From shopping to blind dates, from farming to healthcare and from DIY to animal care, she has her own unusual, amusing take on it all.
Filled with light-hearted humour based on everyday life experiences, we guarantee this short story will make you laugh at the end of your stressful day!
