Delightful assistants star in glossy paperback

2016 brought many enjoyable outings for the delightful assistants.

Having fallen down on the job of recording these on her blog in recent months, their chauffeur has instead produced a glossy paperback relating some of their adventures.

Containing over 60 photographs interspersed with text spread across 58 square pages (measuring approximately 17cm x 17cm), the book features the dynamic duo up to various shenanigans in their native Scotland.


You can see a larger image and flick through the entire book by clicking on the red title or cover above. (When you get to the Blurb website, click on the front cover of the book to scroll through).

Although the book was created mainly for the amusement of the delightful assistants, extra copies were ordered for dispersal to family and friends.

Thanks to the technology of print on demand, the book is available to buy in single copies direct from the Blurb website, by clicking here. Individual copies cost £14.40, plus £7.99 shipping to the UK, a total of £22.39.

There is also a cheaper alternative. For addresses in the UK, you can get a copy through this blog, by leaving a comment below, for a total cost of £14 (inclusive of shipping, a saving of over £8 on the Blurb price).

For addresses outside the UK there is an additional shipping cost, e.g. for EU countries this amounts to £2.50, making a total cost of £16.50. If you would like a quote for any other country, please leave a comment below.

The book appears to be going down quite well, at least in certain quarters.

The stars of the show reliving happy memories.

  1. Well done, Lorna, that looks like a very professional production! “Octogenarian Outings” sounds as if you might do very well in business as a tour company, especially if you included tea rooms in the itinerary! A lovely memento for your parents and your family – I think more people should think about doing this, it’s far better than storing images on some hard drive and forgetting where they are.


    1. Thanks, Jo. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the product from Blurb. Funnily enough, the idea of a business providing outings with tearooms for old folks has crossed my mind, but I think two at at time is all I can manage. I agree about putting photos in a book and that was really why I did it, to give my mum in particular (she’s not one for computers) easy access to those memories.
