For Lucy Sweeney, motherhood isn't all astanga yoga and Cath Kidston prints. It's been years since the dirty laundry pile was less than a metre high, months since Lucy remembered to have sex with her husband, and a week since she last did the school run wearing pyjamas. Motherhood, it seems, has more pitfalls than she might have expected. Caught between perfectionist Yummy Mummy No 1 and hypercompetitive Alpha Mum, Lucy is in danger of losing the parenting plot. And worst of all, she's alarmingly distracted by Sexy Domesticated Dad. It's only a matter of time before the dirty laundry quite literally blows up in her face...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This slice of angst and affluenza is several cuts above the rest ... witty, observant and supremely intelligent" * The Times *
"There is something of Bridget Jones's hopeless-but-adorable quality about Lucy ... Neill's hilarious depiction of the manifold daily perils of stay-at-home motherhood is so convincing that it soon looks like the most challenging job in the world - and Lucy is all the more sympathetic simply for staying afloat" * Daily Telegraph *
"If you're struggling to find your own inner yummy mummy, this is for you. After a few pages you'll want to make heroine Lucy Sweeney your best mate as her trials and tribulations wash away your own troubles" * Woman *
"Above the usual class of post-baby fiction...an intelligent and funny look at modern parenting" * Eve *
"This will have you laughing out loud with empathy" * Star Magazine *
