Motherland season 1
Julia moves out of her comfort zone and reluctantly invites the entire class to her kid’s birthday party. With her Mum still refusing to help out she relies on Liz’s party hacks and Kevin’s entertaining skills. And anyway, she organises events for a living, this will be a breeze!
A school fundraiser is not Julia's idea of an evening out but somehow she finds herself heavily involved in order to impress a former colleague and new mum crush. Kevin has a battle with the cloakroom and despite Anne's protests, Liz takes care of the bar.
A children's pool party in the UK is not the most glamorous of experiences. Luckily Julia is just dropping the kids off there so she can prepare for an important event later that evening. While Liz is at the newsagents the nice looking guy in the queue leaves his wallet behind. She takes it and hopes to return it and hopefully turn it into a date. And a new Dad on the scene pushes Kevin's nose out of joint.
While Paul's away he has the perfect solution to help out Julia. He sends his parents over. Luckily Kevin has a huge fondness for the elderly and assists Julia in her in-law wrangling. Meanwhile, Amanda is having a clearout and reluctantly gives Liz her old coat which seems to have a strange effect on our Liz.
Anne's new car propels her into the limelight as the Mums try to get in on her new carpool. Kevin finds himself in the new role of confidante as Amanda shares a deep secret with him. Liz and Julia's friendship is under fire as Liz realises she is just a 'mum' friend.
Julia's childcare problems are solved after she finds the perfect Nanny, but her friendship with Liz is strained. Amanda is keeping a low profile after Kevin blurted out her secret. Liz visits Lee's new partner to give her some advice. The school caretaker is in hospital but the Mums have lost their ringleader and there's nobody to organise a card.
