Ellen has just turned 39 and still has hopes of living the perfect, organised life. Unfortunately her two children Jane and Peter and husband Simon don’t follow the script and she often has to resort to a drink or two. Readers follow Ellen’s life over the course of the year, as she fends with relatives who stay too long, befriends the hot single dad at the school gate and creates a fun app about a mum’s life.
Set out in diary form, this is exactly how you imagine Bridget Jones as a mother. With a cast of memorable characters, it’s a very funny debut novel about family life from a mummy blogger.
