The Secret Life of a Slummy Mummy

Read this book a while ago....I can't say that I totally loved it but it wasn't bad. I didn't waste time reading it.
Here's a review taken from here:
For Lucy Sweeney, motherhood isn't all astanga yoga and Cath Kidston prints. It has been years since the dirty washing pile was less than a metre high, months since Lucy remembered to have sex with her husband, and a week since she last did the school run wearing pyjamas.
When Husband on a Short Fuse is no contest for the distractions of Sexy Domesticated Dad; Yummy Mummy No 1 has more cash flow than parenting advice; and Alpha Mum is putting a slur on your questionable domestic habits, it's hard to remember exactly why anyone would give up a career and their sanity for three raucous sons and less than blissful domesticity.
Lucy is living in a state of permanent emergency and the white lies to cover up the trail of chaos and illicit desire are about to be exposed ...
An irresistible first novel about the dilemmas of motherhood and modern marriage for those who never discovered their domestic goddess within.

Also this book is about cheating and temptations during the "married life" . It shows that even when you're married there are still people that you find attractive and sometimes you can't fight this feeling and get overwhelmed by it. This book shows all the possible sides of cheating. A woman and a man who both tried to fight the attraction between them, a man who cheated on his wife, a woman who that man cheated with, and a woman who was cheated on.....That's alot, huh???? This book also shows what kind of a wife none of us really want to be or have =))) But I admired the husband of the main character cuz even though she was so clumsy, silly, absent-minded and so on.... They still had 3 kids and loved each other...
