'Her first words were "shoes" and "brioche".'

'There's no nicer way to put this, but frankly anyone can afford to go skiing these days.'

'Of course I said "no". A trampoline in the garden gives out entirely the wrong message.'

Any of these sound familiar? Based on the popular Twitter account @Highgatemums, this hilarious collection brings together the most outrageous snippets of conversation that have been overheard in the shops and cafes of this gentrified North London suburb.

Highgate Mums also includes confessions from mothers dismayed by their own upper-middle-class offspring and submissions from fathers making fun of themselves with the hashtag #lattedads, revealing day-to-day life among Britain's chattering classes as never before.

Apply to win a copy of the book before 12pm Friday 11 November - just post on the thread letting us know you want a copy. We'll then choose ten winners at random.

Thanks all - good luck!

I'm a Highgate mum, but not a Highgate mum, if you see what I mean.( Although I am not averse to quinoa.) Would love a copy to read knowingly on the 143.
