When Meg returns to Dublin after three years trailing Simon
around the globe with their toddler, Lily, and Dan, her 11 year old
son from a previous relationship in tow, she realises that all her
friends have moved on. And now she only has her kooky family, her
sex-obsessed sister, Hattie, and Dan's flaky but dangerously
gorgeous father, Sid, to rely on for help and support.
Her new neighbour, Tina is in the same boat. Tina's a work widow -
her workaholic husband, Oliver, works in London from Monday to
Friday, leaving Tina with only her perma-stressed sister, Gerry,
for company during the week.
Meg is worried - without Simon's job to define her, she doesn't
know who she is anymore. But just when she finds a new job and
starts to get back on her feet, Simon throws her another curve
ball. And Meg finds that having a man around all the time isn't all
it's cracked up to be.
And that sometimes living apart is easier than living together.
Because when the boys are away... the girls can play!
