Saturday 8th May. Emergency!It is 11:30 p.m. and I am suffering from an incredibly intense chocolate craving that will not leave me in spite of prayer, distraction activities and half a loaf of bread and butter. Got out of bed and searched the flat. No luck. Not even a bourbon biscuit. Not even a cream egg left from Easter. All the shops are closed so no nipping out to replenish supplies. Nothing else for it. Im reduced to the chocoholics equivalent of methscooking chocolate.Its been one of those days for Theodora.

Kathy5 Stars Out Of 5Laughter is the Best MedicineApril 26, 2012KathyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Laughter is the best medicine and "Theodora's Diary" proves to be the tonic for whatever ails you. I came across this gem of a book two weeks ago after having a frustrating day in "stay at home wife/mommyland". It saved my sanity! The book is written in the style of "Bridget Jones Diary" with a Christian theme. You will laugh till your sides hurt or until your neighbors will think you have "gone 'round the bend" as you read about Theodora's life. The characters are memorable, the comic timing is perfect and the message is relevant for today's women. Grab a chocolate bar, curl up in your armchair and enjoy the laughter!

Deborah5 Stars Out Of 5September 21, 2006DeborahHilarious book! Theodora is just like me...if I was British. The Bridge Jones formula works well in this book. I laughed at Theo's mom and her Greek tendencies. Imagine having a name like Agemmennon! The portrayal of very conservative and stay at home moms was accurate along with the reaction of those not comfortable with it. I was glad to read Theo's sister's response to Charity chastising her for not staying at home after she has the baby. Theodora is proud that she worked hard to have her job and people like Charity shouldn't put her down for not being like her. The Kevin "Fever Pitch" storyline was great too. I went out and rented the DVD after reading the book (I had no idea Colin Firth was in it!) This book makes me want to have a British accent.
