Publisher's Summary

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....

Funny as fuck

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book gives plenty of good laughs. And who doesn't like humour?

Her recollection of the first time she made dinner for her husband.

What does Gabrielle Glaister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She's very expressive, bringing the character to life.
