Oooh yes please! Everything seemed to tip me over the edge today! Could do with reading about someone else losing their cool instead! Restore some flipping sanity!!!

I could do with reading this - I am constantly teetering on the edge, having been tipped over once when I kicked a potty and broke my toe!

elk4baby Mon 10-Feb-14 20:10:49

Yes please! Sounds like this book would be right up my alley smile. I desperately want to go on strike, but my two have formed a very strong coalition... I wonder if there's anything I can do to break tit?!

ToffeeOwnsTheSausage Mon 10-Feb-14 20:11:08

Looks great!

I am reading a James Patterson at the moment so could use some light relief and feeling the pressure of motherhood and could use a laugh or ten.
