Mum Hannah Skerritt reveals her hectic schedule being a wife, mother, cook, cleaner and taxi driver. WOMEN are famous for their ability to multi-task, but recent stats suggest mothers are taking on at least 14 different jobs in ONE DAY. The average mum has a hectic 16-hour schedule packed with roles including wife, mother, cook, cleaner, dog walker and taxi driver. This may sound like a ridiculous amount of work but as many mums know, this list is just the tip of the iceberg.

Hannah Skerritt, 37, is married to Dave, 44, a construction worker, and is mum to seven-year-old Darragh. She considers herself an average mum — although she manages to take on SEVENTEEN different roles in 24 hours. Hannah, from Rochester, Kent, says: “A typical day starts at 6am as I get Darragh clothed, fed and ferried off to breakfast club before school at 7.30am. “Then at 8am, I start my part-time job as a recruitment consultant.

“My husband will then pick up Darragh from breakfast club and take him to school. “As soon as the clock strikes 2pm, I dash away from my desk to pick up Darragh from school at 3pm, before getting the dinner started and the family dog taken for a walk. “I also have to look after the allotment and animals we have there. “We have a farmyard of chickens and vegetables at the moment. Last year we grew green beans, onions, potatoes and sweetcorn. When I took it on, I had romantic notions of me and Darragh digging and planting together. The reality is he gets bored within about four seconds so it’s all down to me now.”

A few nights a week Hannah will taxi her son and his mates to roller skating, swimming lessons, karate and Beavers. She says: “The car is disgusting. It’s covered in mud from wellies and jumpers dumped after the latest bike riding trip. “Unsurprisingly, I never find time to clean it.” Although Hannah is pulled from pillar to post she says every day is an adventure.

She says: “Even the boring stuff like walking home from school can be a barrel of laughs. “You never know what is going to happen and kids have a funny way of brightening up the most mundane of tasks. In the evening I love reading with Darragh. “Watching his expression when he gets lost in another world is brilliant and it’s a great feeling when you have taught them something new.” From teacher to baker, Hannah even likes to make fresh cakes when she has the chance.

“Everyone loves indulging in a homemade cake, and even though it’s exhausting I love making a treat for the family,” With barely any down time, a friend suggested they join an evening class, so one night a week Hannah booked herself up for a sewing course. Helen adds: “I didn’t think I’d find time for it, but since then I have been making curtains, blinds and cushions whenever I can. “Our camper van is covered in beanbags that I have made for the kids too.”

Although Hannah struggles to get seven hours’ sleep a night she is still an avid social networker and is constantly organising parties for friends and family. Hannah says: “I don’t think I do anything abnormal if I’m honest. “Mums are just so busy these days. “At least I can never moan that I am bored.”
