Sounds exhausting, Solution....

Put on you whistle and flute, head of down the frog and toad and grab yourself a sharp half at the kings head.

Whoa! That'll make you knackered and bonkers fer sure. Nothing like shift work to make you love your employers. Hope you can get some kind of steady schedule soon.
