So today's giveaway is for this signed copy of Why Mummy Drinks (there might be a giveaway later in the week for a signed copy of Asia's book Killing It 😉).

It is Mummy’s 39th birthday. She is staring down the barrel of a future of people asking if she wants to come to their advanced yoga classes, and polite book clubs where everyone claims to be tiddly after a glass of Pinot Grigio and says things like ‘Oooh gosh, are you having another glass?’

  1. I just read Killing It recently following a Twitter recommendation from Hugh Grant, no less, and loved it! It's a LOT of fun! Love Peter and Jane on Facebook as well, so think I'd really enjoy the book.
