Summary

When Meg returns to Dublin after three years following sailor boyfriend Simon around the globe with two toddlers, Lily and Dan, she realises that all her friends have moved on. And now she only has her kooky family and Dan's flaky but dangerously gorgeous father, Sid, to rely on for help and support.

Then she teams up with her neighbour Tina, who's in the same boat - her husband works away, Monday to Friday - and the two new friends start to enjoy their man-free life. Meg has a shock when Simon says he's moving home for good, and finds that sometimes living apart is easier than living together...
