Practical and invaluable advice on every aspect of modern etiquette, both royal and everyday. The author, Her Ladyship, guides you through basic good manners in a range of situations, both formal and informal occasions, whether at home or at work or abroad.

Ever wondered how to fit the ironing into an already overcrowded schedule? Or needed advice on how to deal with house guests whose political opinions you abhor? In this charming follow-up to the popular Her Ladyship's Guide to the Queen's English, Her Ladyship dons the mantle of a modern Mrs Beeton to provide the answers to these pressing domestic questions, and many more. In her trademark lightly humorous but always elegant style, she discusses important issues such as day-to-day housekeeping and routines (exactly how clean do you need to keep your house?), dealing effectively but graciously with 'staff' (cleaners, au pairs, gardeners), how to avoid committing social faux pas when entertaining, and useful ideas for getting the children to help with the housework. The book is not aimed solely at people who live in large country houses, like Her Ladyship, but at anyone who feels in need of a bit of gentle guidance on running a home properly, whatever its size or type, while still coping with the demands of work, childcare and all the other perils of modern life.
Miss Daisy, the curmudgeonly 1934 Austin, returns with another tale of exasperation and embarrassment as she reluctantly yet resolutely carries Her Ladyship and her dog Oscar, better known as The Asthmatic Barking Dog, all the way to John O’Groats, before turning south again. Her Ladyship tries to convince her that once they’ve reached there, the difficult part will be over, but Miss Daisy is unconvinced. If the next ten days are anything like her previous experiences of such trips, then she may as well go and get herself a one-way ticket to the scrapyard. Each day gets worse than the one before and as her ebullient owner relishes every mile, stopping occasionally to give a lift to a succession of oddball hitchhikers, Miss Daisy wonders why on earth such a simple everyday 200-mile journey has to be fraught with such catastrophe. Miss Daisy Conquers Britain is an entertaining book that will never fail to raise a chuckle. It will appeal to fans of Pamela’s first book, the baby boomer generation and vintage and classic car enthusiasts. Pamela’s first book was featured in a wide range of national and local publications, including Austin Magazine, Wales on Sunday and The Western Mail.
