SHOW INFORMATION

GILL SIMS – on Why Mummy Drinks.

Presented in association with Mum’s the Word Writing Group.

Mummy has an idea… when she can get away from all the other ideas, that the world is full of mums who go to advanced yoga classes, get tiddly on a half glass of white wine, and attend polite book clubs.

Mummy does not want to go quietly into that good night, of women with sensible haircuts who live only for their family and stand in the playground trying to trump each other by bragging about their offspring’s academic achievements, extracurricular activities, and their latest overseas holidays.

Instead, she clutches a large and full glass of wine, muttering ‘FML’ over and over again, until she remembers that great idea…

Author of online sensation Peter and Jane, Gill Sims has now written a hilarious and truthful book, Why Mummy Drinks.

Mum’s the Word is a Swindon-based writing group, that meets monthly, and provides an opportunity for mothers to talk together, listen, write, and maybe even have a little drink. Contact: mumsthewordwriting@outlook.com
