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…
If you are after a really funny book this is the one for you. I took this book on holiday with me and got some really funny looks for laughing, but I did manage to recommend it to a few women too. This is the first book and the second book why mummy swears is just as hilarious, as I said about why mummy swears you don’t have to be a mum to understand what mummy goes through. I am already looking forward to the next book, this one really cheered me up. Loved it.
