Morning routines

Recommended Posts

My recent routine:

 

1) Radio alarm goes off at 7:30.

2) Listen to news on Radio 1

3) Whack Snooze button a couple of times.

4) Listen to news again

5) Wait for Celebrity Tarzan feature on Moylesy. Cue to get up straight afterwards.

6) Have a (normally rancid...depending on Guinness intake previous night) dump.

7) Brush teeth (sometimes combined with [6] :lol: )

8) Shower

9) Just time to make a banana smoothie

10) Out the house at 8:50 for work at 9.

 

Like clockwork.

Since I've been freelancing, I don't have any semblance of a daily routine and just stumble out of bed whenever there's work to be done. I'm not looking forward to going back into full-time in a few months. :lol:

My morning routine depends on which day of the week it is.

 

Mon/wed/fri mornings.

 

7am alarm goes off, put it on snooze for ten mins or so.

7-10sh. By this time im late and having to rush which makes me even more miserable. (I do this all the time but never learn) Im not a morning person at all and really resent having to get up.

wee/shower/brush teeth....try to find something to wear to work that doesnt need ironing.

Make mysefl presentable.

Hubby makes coffee ( icant eat breakfast this early)

Rush to work, grumpy as hell ;)

 

tues/thurs mornings.

Much nicer....

Get in from night shift at 8ish.

wee/brush teeth/shower

make coffee, often starving hungry after working all night so have cereal, porridge or croissants.

Spend sometime online, whilst eating breakfast, untill i feel really tired.

Get into bed...bliss :unsure:

 

Sat/sun mornings...

No routine really, i get up when i wake up, which annoyingly is often early :razz: Why, when we can stay in bed do we wake up and not be able to go back to sleep, yet all week we'd die for an extra hour in bed??!! :lol:

If we're doing a race meeting on a sat or sun, i could have to get up anytime from 5am onwards...which is a killer!

Waking up at 5 to leave for work at 7.30 is madness! What time do you go to bed? :lol:

 

I wake up at 7.15, get up for 7.30, leave for work at 7.50, and get there for 8.30ish if all goes well. I'm always tired because I go to be too late though.

Yeah, easy. I shower the night before, don't usually shit, shave in 3 minutes (brush teeth/wash face in maybe another 5), and don't eat breakfast (maybe a cup of tea made by Mrs Renton). I wear jeans and a T-shirt and have packed my bag the previous night. In fact 20 minutes is too much - I usually get to watch the news for 5 minutes. ;)

I can't help it man. I'm the same on a weekend, I'm just completely incapable of sleeping in. If I stay up late to try and engineer a lie-in I just end up waking up at 5 or 6 anyway. :lol:

 

By the way, people who shower the night before are dirty pigs - FACT! And what are you doing going to work in jeans and a T-shirt? :razz:

I'm like Lazarus, I shower and shave the night before for two reasons; 1) I play football 3 work nights a week and go out for a run on another which means I NEED to shower before I go to bed or the bedroom will smell like a nun's laundry basket. 2) I always seem to sepnd ages in the shower so would end up turning up at work at 10am. Not that anyone would notice like. :unsure:

 

6:45am - Phone alarm goes off. Straight up, light on, say good morning to Mrs SLP who replies 'turn the fucking light off'. Go straight for a piss, and have a wake up wash.

 

6:55am - Go through clothes mountain on the floor of my side of the bedroom and pick out things to wear.

 

7:00am - Go to kitchen, stick on the radio and listen to the news. Feed by now yapping, whinging cat and check if she's had a shite in her litter box overnight. If she has, pick up offending stool and put it in a plastic bag.

 

7:05am - Breakfast, usually two slices of wholemeal with marge.

 

7:15am - Out the door and ready for work.

 

7:16am - Back in realising I've left the plastic bag of cat shit. Get it and go out again, putting it in wheely bin on way to car.

 

7:17am - realise you've forgotten security pass/fob/car keys/pants. I can guarantee this every morning without fail.

 

7:35am - Park up at work, go to the shop and buy a Guardian and something to drink, then I'm at my desk and on here! :lol:
