Description

Why Mummy Drinks is the brilliant novel from Gill Sims, the author of the online sensation Peter and Jane.

It is Mummy’s 39th birthday. She is staring down the barrel of a future of people asking if she wants to come to their advanced yoga classes, and polite book clubs where everyone claims to be tiddly after a glass of Pinot Grigio and says things like ‘Oooh gosh, are you having another glass?’

But Mummy does not want to go quietly into that good night of women with sensible haircuts who ‘live for their children’ and stand in the playground trying to trump each other with their offspring’s extracurricular activities and achievements, and boasting about their latest holidays.

Instead, she clutches a large glass of wine, muttering ‘FML’ over and over again. Until she remembers the gem of an idea she’s had…

    Love love love this book! The turn of phrase is so entertaining that I found myself laughing out loud in the office when I was meant to be working! Laughed so much I cried! Enjoy this book with liberal doses of wine, it truly is one to savour!! 😀
  • Like a cool gin on a hot day.

    Lovely, bubbly, book that lifts the lid on the reality of parenting. Been there, survived the Über Mummy playground gauntlet, and ow moved on the 'Stag Battle' of two adult males in one house. I wish I'd had this when the Boden Mummy Mafia, who mostly had 'careers' or were 'involved in charity work' terrified me and my stay-at home, skint as hell self. Perfect to read while snuggled up with your own Judgy Dog, a cashmere blanket (I wish! Dunelm Mill fleece more like!), and a glass, or two, of your preference
  • Brilliant!

    I really loved this book, so funny I couldn’t stop reading it. Thankyou Gill for making me giggle through the night feeds. It won’t be long before this is made into a film!

    A great read from the first page and an absolute must-buy for those Peter and Jane Facebook followers. So refreshing for a book to capture the chaos of life so perfectly and with genius wit and characters - for all us once-career-women-now-mothers, it’s a laugh out loud sanity saver - thank you Gill!
