Diary of a Hapless Househusband

(The first book in the Hapless Househusband series)
A novel by

When father-of-two Sam loses his job, he reluctantly agrees to stay at home while his wife returns to work. Secretly thinking this whole parenthood thing a breeze of leisurely jaunts to the park, reading the paper while the children play quietly and occasionally attending a civilised play date or two, Sam quickly realises just what exactly it means to be a stay-at-home parent. Inevitably, domestic mayhem ensues. Just trying to get dressed in the morning and out of the house without going to A and E is a feat in and of itself, as is managing the children's complicated play-date schedule while fending off the unwelcome advances of Jodhpur Mum at the Ann Summers party. He spends his nights devising a foolproof 72-step Childcare Programme, which doesn't seem remotely up to the task. Desperate to get himself out of the house and into the working world again, he seizes upon a variety of mad schemes, but just as things look like they're beginning to fall into place for him, he makes a surprising discovery...
