However, the publisher's use of 's for plurals ended up annoying me so much that much of the enjoyment of the actual book was lost for me. I know it's pedantic, but we encourage our kids to read in order to improve their langauge skills as well as for enjoyment -if publishers cannot be bothered to get this right in printed material what hope is there for the rest of us? Just because the book is mainly for adults and not kids why should standards be lower?
This smacks of both laziness and carelesness and it's a pity as this is otherwise an enjoyable, well written descriptive book.
Katherine Williams has achieved this. Well done! Much recommended.
I was really surprised by how much I've enjoyed it so far, having expected it to be a bit self-serving or ranty. But the well written, off-handed humour, had me laughing by the end of the very first paragraph.
Definitely the 'Bridget Jones Diary' of the mothering world
I downloaded this e-book form Amazon.co.uk when it was Free!The cartoonists nature of the cover suggested that it would be a light funny type of read. Wow this one really delivered. Its humour that any mum or single mum can identify with. You go through the trials and tribulations of dealing with the ex and his ultimate let downs, when he doesn't turn up, doesn't pay his CSA or brings the kids home early. Then there the dealing with a teenager. the only thing I felt missing was a bit of interaction with the older generation. though having said that there was so much already covered. I am the type of person that likes the program "Mock The Week" a satirical look at the weeks news. Well you would put this book on a par with that program it is a satirical look at the world through the tired eyes of a single mum trying to make ends meet and the money stretch like elastic. I loved the references to PNP = Pot Noodle Parenting. I won't go into more detail as then it would spoil your discovery of this, in my opinion brilliant, laugh out loud book! Even though I downloaded this book as a freebie I would definitely say its worth buying! I also have to say I would love this fellow single mum as a friend! Life would never be dull or feel miserable with her wit and take on life around.
Did I enjoy it? Oh, Yes! Would I recommend it? Yes to all mums! (not just the single ones, though when I look around at myself and my friends most of them seem to be single mums!
Would I read more by Katherine Williams? Yes please! Would I read a BK2? Yes
A must read for single mums everywhere... and dads and grannies, dogs, hamsters...

A diary that most of us will be able to relate to. The daily struggle of a single parent to muddle through somehow. Thought provoking and very funny in places. Read morePublished on 11 May 2014 by mmmppph
