Trudy is in her mid-thirties, single mother to two-year-old Grace. She is a journalist who has returned to work after maternity leave to write a frank and hilarious column about her tentative steps back into the non-toddler world of adulting. She writes honestly about being a single mother and other aspects of her chaotic life. Like folds and dimples and dangly bits that didn’t used to dangle; hideous, horrific blind dates; the rise of uber eyebrows; a mother who can sniff out sin from fifty paces; the cruel and unnecessary invention of the burpee; and her love affair with stomach control pants, to name but a few. Gorgeous and talented, but woefully full of self-doubt, Trudy battles along at work, at home and even sporadically (and reluctantly) at the gym. This despite a complete lack of coordination and the risk of death by mortification from her tongue-tied interactions with beautiful personal trainer, Jonas. But he sees her. And he likes what he sees. Even when she doesn’t. There are parts where your heart will stutter for her. But then there are parts where you’ll laugh so hard your pelvic floor will teeter on a cliff edge. We’re all a bit Trudy, somewhere deep down.
