Book description
Can you really have children and still be the same woman you were before? Can you still be a dependable friend, career-girl with a decent hairdo, party animal and sexual athlete? Or must you enter the world of stain-infested, hairy-legged zombies whoknow all the verses to 'i'm a Little Teapot'? Mel Giedroyc is about to find out.

When Mel's husband Dan quits his job, life gets interesting. Especially since they are just about to move into a house they can't afford and take on two nubile lodgers from Eastern Europe. Welcome to the relentless carnival of sleep deprivation, sinister toddler groups, buggy rage, competitive mums, suburban swinging and brain mummification.
