It’s time for a w(h)ine
“God, she’s funny” – Jilly Cooper
‘Oh, for f*ck’s sake’ muttered Claire under her breath, as she opened the fridge to see what she could find for a no effort dinner. The children continued to fight behind her. They regarded any form of fish not encased in breadcrumbs as toxic, and were resistant enough to the delicious homemade fishfingers Claire had made for them, insisting they much preferred Captain Birdseye’s version. White wine was starting to look like quite an appealing dinner actually. Maybe just a small glass.
‘Are you having wine, Mum? You know you’re not supposed to have wine every night. We did about alcohol units at school. That’s quite a big glass of wine, how many units do you think are in it?’
’Bet the bastards didn’t tell you that wine is remarkably good at cancelling out whining though, did they?’ muttered Claire.
Claire’s family has gone nuclear. Her precious moppets keep calling Childline when she feeds them broccoli, she’s utterly Ottolenghied out at weekends, and her darling husband is having an affair with her best friend.
The question isn’t whether she needs a glass of wine, but is there one big enough?
Enter the Sauvignon Sisterhood, a new set of friends brought together by a shared love of liquid therapy. Together they might just be able to convince Claire that, like a good bottle of red, life really can get better with age. Or at least there’s more to it than the joy of an M&S non-iron school uniform.

Claire has a nearly perfect normal life. She has a great job, a great home, a husband, and two children. She also has a life long best friend, Emily. The only down side is that her husband and her best friend are having an affair. Claire needs to decide how she is going to change her life, and face the yoga mummies of the playground when they all find out her life has been tipped upside down.
This is a great new book from the author of the “Why Mummy’s” series of books. This is relatable and funny. I’m pretty sure every woman has felt like the characters in this book at some time or another. The characters were great, and out of them all I felt Lucy was most like myself, who laughs everything off, even bad situations that most certainly should not be laughed at. I read this book quite quickly as, like all this authors work, they are easy, lighthearted reads. I would recommend.
If you enjoy Gill Sims' writing, you'll love this book!
