A WOMAN with no child-rearing responsibilities believes she is physically exhausted, it has emerged.
Emma Bradford, 32, gets an average of seven hours sleep every night, not a minute of which is interrupted by a bawling child, but still claims to be shattered in the morning.
Bradford said: “About a fortnight ago I only grabbed five hours of sleep after a big night out with the girls. I think I can safely say I know exactly how mums must feel.
“To be honest I think I’m still catching up on the sleep I lost. And now I come to think about it, I’m always tired.
“If I’ve had a busy day at work I might only feel up to a few drinks with friends that evening or a meal and a trip to the cinema. If only I could shake off this terrible exhaustion.”
Friend and mum-of-two Donna Sheridan said: “I’d like to get Emma to babysit my kids for a month then ask how she’s feeling, but she still tries to cook unopened tins of food in the microwave so they probably wouldn’t survive a week.
“Mind you, letting Emma starve them or blow them up would give me the chance to finally get some shuteye so it’s tempting.”
