Why Mummy Swears

The Second book in the Why Mummy Drinks series by Gill Sims

Description: It’s every parents’ nightmare – the start of the school holidays – and instead of sitting in the sun, reading a book over a cold, crisp glass of Pinot Grigio, Mummy has two bored moppets to attend to. After frantically booking sports camps, child minder slots, not to mention time off work, Mummy is exhausted. But this is only the beginning… After being dragged to join the school’s PTA in the new term by an annoyingly kind-spirited neighbour, Mummy is stuck with organising the Christmas Fayre and pleasing all the overly disapproving parents. In combination with getting to know her father’s surprise new glamorous (and much younger) wife, and being forced to spend more time with her narcissistic mother, life isn’t cutting her much of a break. What more could possibly happen?

I have waited so long for this one! I literally have been looking for this one since July of last year and I’ve finally managed to get a copy of it!! I was so happy to receive this in the mail!! It did again take a bit of getting used to with the different style of writing with the accent that comes through. But I got right back into it pretty quickly when I started! And once again these books are amazing! The mom struggles are, and continue to be totally real! The first day of school photo, for the love of god! I’ve had my fair share of outfit meltdowns! I love that it’s a Diary style of book, it makes you feel a lot closer to the main character who at this point just sounds like a friend gabbing about her family and work life over glasses of wine (even though I didn’t have any wine while reading it) it just feels so fun to read and it’s incredibly witty! The tangents she goes off on are hilarious and rambling, which usually isn’t fun in a book, but her rants are amusing and hilarious! You never know what she’s going to say next and it keeps you on your toes, then sometimes she says something so hilariously absurd and it catches you off guard and you laugh so hard for like three minutes straight. Loved it! I can’t wait until the next one!

I rate this book
