Why Mummy Drinks meets Bridget Jones

We first meet new mother Juliette Duffy sobbing her way through sleepless nights and nappy changes. The supporting cast of The Bad Mother’s Diary includes her useless partner Nick, who spends all his time drinking Guinness and playing computer games, plus her over-honest mother, potty-mouthed grandmother, militant hippy best friend and the handsome-but-scarred hotel magnate Alex Dalton.

As the series progresses with The Bad Mother’s Detox and The Bad Mother’s Holiday, Juliette continues to juggle single-parenthood, romance, hostile in-laws and unexpected further pregnancy, with chaotic but hilarious consequences.

The story culminates with The Bad Mother’s Christmas, a sparkly, shiny Yuletide romantic comedy. Bundled together, all four volumes of this bestselling series are a sassy, uplifting, addictive treat. You may as well buy them all at once – because if you read the first one, you’ll want to read all the others anyway!

Back at my parents’ house after HUGE argument with Nick.

Am FURIOUS.

Asked Nick to look after Daisy while I went to the supermarket (I always get distracted if I bring her along, and buy random things like special edition brownie Mars Bars).

Got home to find Nick playing computer games, with TEN empty bottles of original Guinness beside him.

New Year’s Day

Back at my parents’ house after HUGE argument with Nick.

Am FURIOUS.

Asked Nick to look after Daisy while I went to the supermarket (I always get distracted if I bring her along, and buy random things like special edition brownie Mars Bars).

Got home to find Nick playing computer games, with TEN empty bottles of original Guinness beside him.

TEN BOTTLES! In TWO hours!

I was furious.

‘I’m not drunk,’ he slurred. ‘If I were drunk, I’d never have cracked this part of Assassin’s Creed.’

I demanded he walk in a straight line, and he fell over.

As I was screaming at him, Nick’s mother let herself into the apartment.

She saw Nick on the floor and said, ‘You look tired, darling.’ Then she asked what all the fuss was about.

I said Nick was getting drunk when he was supposed to be looking after a three-month old baby.

‘Oh Nick,’ said Helen. ‘But Juliette, he has been working all day. He’s obviously stressed.’

Working! All Nick’s done today is read a two-page script for an online poker commercial.

‘If I ever need relationship advice from a divorcee,’ I told Helen, ‘I’ll let you know.’

Then I screamed at Nick a bit more, threw a bag together and said I was taking Daisy to my parents’ house.

I would have made a strong, dignified-woman exit, except I had to come back for Daisy’s pink waffle blanket, Teddy Snuggles, blackout curtain with suckers and finally her Lullaby Light Bear.

reviews

‘Frank, disarming and hilarious, it’s the best women’s fiction I have read since the last Marian Keyes and it made me spit more coffee out than Bridget Jones’ Diary ever did. I can’t wait to read books 2 and 3’

‘This book made me laugh so much it became dangerous for a mother-of-four to continue’
