She is staring down the barrel of a future full 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?'

Bookmark in The Crescent, Spalding, is selling Why Mummy Drinks (RRP £7.99) with £2 off at £5.99 and an extra 20% off with the voucher in this week's Spalding Guardian (on sale May 31-June 6).
