‘A very funny, honest look at the ups and downs of parenting. I absolutely loved it.’ – Emily Dean, host of Walking the Dog

‘As a mum of two girls, I was nodding, laughing and emotional. I recognised so much of Lucy’s journey in my own… I really loved it.’ YolanDa Brown, BBC Loose Ends

From TV’s award-winning comedy mum, Lucy Beaumont, comes her hilarious debut on the trials and tribulations of motherhood.

Known for her sharp, witty and surreal view on everyday life, Lucy shares the unpredictable craziness of being a mum in this brilliant and laugh-out-loud ‘mumoir’. Mums everywhere will recognise the madness of it all. Like when Lucy was hospitalised during her third trimester with chest pains but it turned out to be a burrito. Or when she was so tired at the park she forgot her own child’s name.

Heart-warming and laugh-out-loud funny, Drinking Custard also captures Lucy’s marriage to comedian Jon Richardson, as they navigate Lucy’s raging pregnancy hormones and balk at pram prices together.

Get ready to make room on mum’s bookshelf for Drinking Custard to sit alongside other mum classics such as Why Mummy Drinks, Hurrah For Gin! and The Unmumsy Mum.
