31 ThE PILE Of STUff AT ThE BOTTOm Of ThE STAIRS cHRIStINA HopkINSoN Working part time combined with full-time housework and motherhood, Mary is fed-up with her life. Mary feels like she fails at everything and she is convinced that one thing standing between her and domestic bliss is her husband Joel. The spark that brought them together has been lost in the mundane drudgery of everyday life. Mary devises a spreadsheet to track Joel’s credits and debits and, unbeknownst to him, gives Joel six months to come out ahead or else... Packed with wit and humour, this novel perfectly captures the frustration we all feel sometimes with our everyday lives and the angst of the working mother.
