  • Working mothers 'spend three hours on chores every morning' - 5 November 2013
    "Working mothers spend three hours doing household chores before they get to the office - using up the equivalent of calories as an hour-long bicycle ride.

    Six in ten women say their day is already well underway by 7am and rarely slows until they go to bed just before 11pm."
