What do Zachariah, Great Aunt Mildred and Bob have in common?
Being a Mum! The hardest job in the world, a myriad of decisions (shall we call the child Zachariah or Bob), hundreds of well-meaning but pointless pieces of advice (like Great Aunt Mildreds choice of Algernon?!), a thousand moments of ‘oh no what have we done!’ and what’s a new mum to do with all those baby samples?
If you’re feeling stressed out by the whole deal, pick up this book, grab a coffee (or tea, I’m not drinkest) and take the Mother Load off.
Lizzie Galloway or Liz as she’s usually known lives on the wild Westcoast of the South Island of Aotearoa with 2 kids, 1 dog, 3 cats, 2 terrapins, 1 bird, 1 rabbit, 2 parents (who live in the flat out the back) and 1 very long suffering husband.
She likes cooking, gardening and painting things which explains why she is often described by her darling madre as a ‘mucky pup’. This is her first published work but she assures us ‘there’s plenty more where that came from’ (but only if you like this one).
