When Megs became a cleaner, she didn't realise that if people looked at her a cleaner would be all they saw. Megs has as full a life as the people she does for, Mrs Terribly-Clean-Pearson or Ms Oh-Just-Keep-It-Above-The-Dysentery-Line McGhee. She's the mother of three children and still mourning the death of a son; she enjoys a constant sparring match with her mother; she drinks away her troubles with Lorraine, her friend since Primary One; and she sings the blues in a local club.

Comments to eBook Giving Up On Ordinary
Cogelv
She writes pleasantly readable fiction about modern women's trials and tribulations, generally with satisfying outcomes. She doesn't sugarcoat her characters' lives. She is a talented writer of contemporary Scottish urban life.

From reading the blurb on the back I was expecting at least half of the book to be about Megs's (the main character) success. I got sick of her whining on about being ordinary but doing absolutely nothing about it!!It was only in the last 2 chapters that she and her mate, Lorraine, finally got to open their long-dreamed of sandwich bar.It was as if the author suddenly realised that the book had grown to almost full capacity and main protagonist still hadn't done anything so she decided to cram it in quickly!!!! I also got tired of the constant descriptions of the mess and chaos in Megs's house. I think it was supposed to endear the reader to her but in my case it didn't work and I kept wishing she'd get off her backside and DO something.I think the humour in the book saved the day.
