Description

The hilarious second novel, and Sunday Times No 1 Bestseller, from author of the smash hit Why Mummy Drinks. Monday, 25 July The first day of the holidays. I suppose it couldve been worse. I brightly announced that perhaps it might be a lovely idea to go to a stately home and learn about some history. As soon as we got there I remembered why I dont use the flipping National Trust membership – because National Trust properties are full of very precious and breakable items, and very precious and breakable items dont really mix with children, especially not small boys. Where I had envisaged childish faces glowing with wonder as they took in the treasures of our nations illustrious past, we instead had me shouting Dont touch, DONT TOUCH, FFS DONT TOUCH!” while stoutly shod pensioners tutted disapprovingly and drafted angry letters to the Daily Mail in their heads. How many more days of the holiday are there? Welcome to Mummys world… The Boy Child Peter is connected to his iPad by an umbilical cord, The Girl Child Jane is desperate to make her fortune as an Instagram lifestyle influencer, while Daddy is constantly off on exotic business trips… Mummys marriage is feeling the strain, her kids are running wild and the house is steadily developing a forest of mould. Only Judgy, the Proud and Noble Terrier, remains loyal as always. Mummy has also found herself a new challenge, working for a hot new tech start-up. But not only is she worrying if, at forty-two, she could actually get up off a bean bag with dignity, shes also somehow (accidentally) rebranded herself as a single party girl who works hard, plays hard and doesnt have to run out when the nanny calls in sick. Can Mummy keep up the facade while keeping her family afloat? Can she really get away with wearing comfy trousers to work? And, more importantly, can she find the time to pour herself a large G+T? Probably effing not.
