Would You Ask My Husband That?
When Sarah's husband, Will, is unexpectedly fired, her first reaction is shock. Then she gets a call offering her his old job.
On principal, she should turn it down. But their young family needs the money and Sarah’s career has taken a backseat for years. Why shouldn’t this be her turn to shine?
Overnight, Sarah and Will trade places.
She's now the departmental director commuting into the city five days a week and answering client calls on the weekend. He's doing the school run and the laundry. Or at least trying to.
They've always said they’re equal partners, so this transition should be simple right?
This change was supposed to be the making of them as a family, but as Sarah fights for her chance to have it all, she might end up losing everything...

Wife Support System
'We’ve got the balance all wrong. Instead of living with our partners, struggling to do everything by ourselves and only seeing each other now and then, we should do it the other way round. We should live together and see them now and then.'
Erica knows her suggestion’s extreme, but when her nanny leaves without notice, she’s extremely desperate. Polly and Louise aren’t convinced, but when circumstances force them to move into Polly's enormous but run-down house, they have to admit life’s much easier when the childcare and workload is shared.
At first, communal living seems like the answer to their prayers – childcare on tap, rotas for cleaning and someone always around to cook dinner (no more last-minute pizza delivery). But over time, resentment starts to grow as they judge each other’s parenting styles and bicker over cleaning, cooking and whose turn it is to buy toilet rolls.
As one woman has her head turned by a handsome colleague, one resorts to spying on her husband and another fights to keep a dark secret, they need each other more than ever. But can Polly, Louise and Erica keep their friendship and relationships strong? Or will their perfect mumtopia fall apart?
