We all have days where we want to throw a stapler at a co-worker right? Or stick a '' You're a Tit" post-it on the back of a colleagues chair!?
But what if your co-worker was your mum?
There are so many famous mum and daughter teams, Marie Curie and her daughter, Irene Joliot-Curie, The Pankhursts' to name a few. But what is it really like working day in and day out with your mum.
