It seems that a woman's work really is never done, at least that of modern mothers.  Women are in charge of a crippling daily juggling act - combining more than six different roles to get through their lives. 

Research by tea maker Twinings has shown that as well as being a friend, cook, housekeeper and mother, they are also a daughter, employee and colleague, lover, agony aunt, driver and personal assistant.  Their average 6.2 jobs compare with 4.7 for men who become friend, driver, repair/handyman and father.

As a result, 97 per cent admit they feel stressed with one in 10 feeling "so stressed out they can't remember what it feels like to be calm or content".  A third of women turn to wine or overeat as a means to unwind.
