TV’S HAPPIEST MOTHER DELVES INTO ON AND OFF SCREEN STRUGGLES IN HER NEW MEMOIR!
MY DAYS: HAPPY AND OTHERWISE is in stores April 2018!
For eleven seasons, Marion Ross was head of one of America’s favorite television households. Now meet the lovable real-life woman behind the Happy Days mom . . .
Before she was affectionately known to millions as “Mrs. C.,” Marion Ross worked for two decades as a Paramount starlet, appearing in nearly every major TV series of the 1950s and 1960s—including Love, American Style, in which she donned an apron that would cinch her career. Soon after came the fateful phone call from producer Garry Marshall that made her an “overnight” success, and changed her life . . .
In this warm and candid memoir, filled with loving recollections from the award-winning Happy Days team—from break-out star Henry Winkler to Cunningham “wild child” Erin Moran—Ross shares what it was like to be a starry-eyed young girl with dreams in poor, rural Minnesota, and the resilience, sacrifices, and determination it took to make them come true. She recalls her early years in the business, being in the company of such luminaries as Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, and Noel Coward, yet always feeling the Hollywood outsider—a painful invisibility that mirrored her own childhood. She reveals the absolute joys of playing a wife and mother on TV, and the struggles of maintaining those roles in real life. But among Ross’s most heart-rending recollections are those of finally finding a soulmate—another secret hope of hers made true well beyond her expectations.
Funny, poignant, and revealing—and featuring Garry Marshall’s final illuminating interview—as well as a touching foreword from her “TV son” Ron Howard, and a conversation with her real-life son and daughter, Marion Ross’s story is one of inspiration, persistence, and gratitude. It’s also a glowing tribute to all those who fulfilled her dreams—and in turn, gave us some of the happiest days of our own lives.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Born in Minnesota, actress Marion Ross made her film debut in 1953’s Forever Female, starring Ginger Rogers and William Holden. After working steadily in movies and television, she became famous for playing Mrs. C. on the iconic sitcom Happy Days, which aired from 1974-84, and for which she received two Primetime Emmy Award nominations. Since then, she has worked on such series as The Drew Carey Show, Touched by an Angel, Nurse Jackie, and The Middle. Ms. Ross has two grown children and lives in California.
Award-winning reporter and editor-in-chief of Life After 50 magazine, David Laurell has written hundreds of celebrity features and bios and has an extensive and varied journalism background.

MUM’S THE WORD: RACHAEL FINCH’S QUICK & DIRTY BEAUTY TIPS FOR TIME-POOR MUMS
Amcal Beauty Ambassador Rachael Finch knows how hard it is to find just five minutes alone in the mirror. As mum to three-year-old Violet with her second child recently born, and juggling a busy social calendar in between her work commitments, she’s the first to admit that it’s always a constant battle for time.
Like Rachael, many of us find there’s not enough hours in the day to follow a stringent beauty routine, however studies have shown that the average Australian woman actually spends at least 55 minutes in front of the mirror each day*.
While Rachael admits that she isn’t quite as religious with her beauty routine as she used to be, she believes that busy women should use the lack of time to their advantage – focussing on key features to accentuate, and letting their natural beauty do the rest.
“Although we don’t like to admit it, we women tend to spend many wasted hours in front of the mirror perfecting our hair and make-up, which could have been spent on other more enjoyable tasks had we cleverly maximised those precious minutes we have each morning.
“From beauty product hacks to quick-fix hair solutions, I’ve narrowed down my top five tips for getting ready in a rush.”
Here Rachael shares her quick & dirty staples for getting glam in a hurry:
1. Base-ic beauty: Flawless skin starts with a good base, so invest in a skincare routine that is right for you! We’ve all got different needs so it’s a good idea to have a skin analysis test to determine what products might work on your skin type. If nothing else, this should be the one thing you prioritise. Well-kept skin is the base for your makeup routine, and only requires a slick of concealer or tinted moisturiser, so you can leave the lengthy foundation application process for special events or when you have more time up your sleeve. Try the Boots Labratories Optiva Radiance Renew Foaming Wash at just $14.
2. Breathe life into tired eyes: Whoever said diamonds were a girl’s best friend was surely confused, because it’s more than likely concealer. As well as being used to cover blemishes without a heavy-look, this nifty tool can brighten tired eyes in an instant. Take a concealer slightly lighter than your skin tone and sweep underneath the bottom of your eye, to form an inverted triangle which instantly lifts the face. I love the Colour Theory concealer stick in light from Amcal, at just $6.
3. Put those baby products to extra use by faking longer lashes: Lengthy, thick lashes instantly brighten and widen eyes but applying fake lashes is not even close to achievable with little ones around. Instead, use a spare mascara wand to brush a layer of baby powder on your lashes between mascara applications, and then complete the look with a quick curl using a curling wand.
4. Feel peachy with a bit of colour: Adding colour to your cheeks instantly warms the face. I love using a peachy blush combined with a golden bronzer to create the glow of someone that’s spent a week on a tropical island, rather than a busy mum who’s lacking shut-eye. For those of us that are really short on time, try Colour Theory’s In The Pink lipstick ($8) which is not only hydrating for lips, but can be blended into the apples of the cheeks to create a creamy, rosy glow.
5. Create salon-worthy beach waves in seconds: After jumping out of the shower of an evening, section damp hair into two halves and create two plaits or braids. Sleep in these overnight, and then in the morning take them out and gently use an afro-pick style comb to loosen the sections and create volume. Finish with a gentle, light spray of hairspray for an easy, voluminous look. Try the Amcal Beauty Theory Afro Comb for just $4.

SOMPbags is my small bag-making business based in Wooster, Ohio.
When my son was born in 2006, I left my teaching job and mostly during nap time, I learned how to sew bags, purses, and other accessories. Over the years, I’ve developed and refined designs, combining simple, practical elements with beautiful prints and high quality hardware. SOMPbags’s attention to detail sets it apart, too, from fully lined interiors to adorned exterior zipper to hand-painted text on one zippy pouch design. I also take care to incorporate some organic fabrics each season.
My most popular design is my wristlet, which is a roomy and yet compact little purse with a snapped front pocket and a zippered main compartment. My newest is the painted zippy, which features beautiful brass hardware, organic cotton and canvas, and hand-painted designs.

In the Victorian era Mothering Sunday was a special day when children working away in domestic service could return home to visit their mother and families. Although celebrated during Lent, fasting was relaxed and families could indulge in delicious rich foods and celebrations. Children were encouraged to bake a Simnel Cake or pick flowers as a gift for their mothers; hence the evolution of present giving on Mothering Sunday.
The museums are open from 10am until 4pm. A great value Annual Passport Ticket allowing multiple entry into all ten Ironbridge Gorge Museums costs £25 per adult, £20 for seniors, £15 for children under 18, £68 for a family of two adults and all their children and £50 for a family with one adult; under 5s free (terms and conditions apply); Passports can also be bought online in advance saving 5% and individual entry tickets are available at each museum.
