RACHAELE HAMBLETON Real Life of a Part-Time Working Mummy
a fresh new voice in parenting, Real Life of a PartTime Working Mummy celebrates the ups and downs of being a parent in a complex family.
Rachaele Hambleton is not a yummy mummy, a scummy mummy or any other kind of stereotypical parent. Her message is clear: not everyone is a perfect mum with a nice house, a steady marriage and 2.5 children. For Rachaele, blogging isn’t just about laughing at your boob leaking in front of the postman; it’s also about shining a light on very real ups and downs life can throw at us – from having fun with your kids and watching them grow, to meltdowns, domestic violence, bullying and more.
This book will tackle these issues head on (with plenty of swearing along the way) and will detail Part-Time Working Mummy’s life in all it’s brilliantly chaotic glory, with fuck-ups, achievements and everything in between. Framed by Rachaele’s own experiences, the book will take an episodic format with inserts of mini-essays, rants, fan stories and opinion pieces. It will be about the best, the worst and the OK times in a ‘normal’ family.
Hundreds of thousands of fans flock to the Part-Time Working Mummy blog and Facebook (437k followers) page for Rachaele Hambleton’s honest take on parenting. Through her blog, Rachaele has created a supportive online community where parents can go for respite. This is her first book.
