" 'How does a man react to being dumped on a Monday lunchtime with no kitchen table and three small children to pick up at half past three?'

When Joseph Stone's long time partner Dilys walks out on him, he doesn't mope on the side-lines of single-parenthood. He knows where the Toilet Duck lives and how to knock up a storming chicken nugget and beans. He's sure he knows how to be a Mum as well as a Dad to his three energetic children Gloria, Jed and Billy. He even scores in his love life again. But after he and Dilys agree to share the care of the kids - one week at Mummy's home, one week at Daddy's - he begins to feel distinctly second best to Dilys's mysterious new man, Chris. What does she see in this computer nerd in bush shorts? What is a Manly Men convention and what does Chris get up to when he's at one? What drives Joseph to dress up as a moose? And why is there a dead cat in his sports bag?

dad's life is a wonderfully warm, witty and true novel about fatherhood when family values fall apart and you're left holding the babies in one hand and your sanity in the other."

(Bought at Tesco, 2 for £4, April 2005 with "Infidelity for First-time Fathers")

Taking this book on holiday with me to Spain. Hopefully I will get time to read and release it.
