Mum realises she has become unpaid PA to eight-year-old child

A MUM has realised that she has somehow become a PA to her eight-year-old daughter during lockdown. 

Emma Bradshaw has been roped into organising daily conference calls and phone appointments, proofing emails and arranging regular refreshments for her daughter.

Bradshaw said: “I’m not sure how it happened. One minute she was borrowing my phone to chat to her pals, then the next thing you know I’m writing and sending out invites to Zoom meetings for something called The Big Poo Club.

“If I’m not printing out colouring sheets I’m answering video calls from seven-year-old Lily up the road. Then I have to wait for ages to use my own f**king phone while they discuss how many biscuits they ate on Tuesday and whether Elsa is prettier than Anna.

“It’s like I’m doing another full time job, but with the kind of strident, unpredictable boss who would give Priti Patel a run for her money.

“I can’t wait until she goes back to school and I can go back to the less demanding world of being a corporate lawyer.”
