Your routine in these bullshit times

Weekends are prone to lie-ins, sudden naps, late night episodes of whatever and so on, BUT my weekday routine has become endlessly familiar now.

7am - mrs wakes up, waking me up

7.30am - up and out of bed, check emails so there are no nasty surprises when I start, but unless crucial i don’t act on them.

7.45 - 10am: If it’s not raining, hot tub with a coffee. If it is raining, coffee. Breakfast. Walk in the cold. Shower.

10am - Work starts. Get up every hour to walk about a bit, stretch or whatever.

12:30pm - Workout, then lunch.

1.30pm - Work til 6pm.

6pm - stuff i wanna do while mrs is teaching in kitchen. This is usually working on something creative or vegging out on couch.

7.30/8/8.30 depending on when teaching is over - cook dinner.

9pm - after food, probably a board game or time reading next to each other.

2am - i may possibly have gotten to sleep by this point if it’s a good day. She has fallen asleep two or three hours before this so if i’m fucked i just hive off to the lounge to be tired and procrastinate.

And repeat.

8.30 am - wake up/get showered
9am - meant to start work so make breakfast and a drink
9.10-5 - stare at a screen
5 - 11 - stare at a wall
11 - 11.30 - read
11.30 - 1.30 - try to sleep unsuccessfully
1.30 - 8.30 sleep

I have coffee in bed with a book EVERY DAY. Pre 2020 I would never wale up earlier than I absolutely had to (for various reasons), and hadn’t read a book outside of summer holidays for a good few years.

As of next week I’m living alone again (after sharing the flat with my sister for a few months), so I’m sure more of my own weird routines will sneak in as well.


man you need to start eating

i’m glad we got this out of the way


7am - alarm. Mix of snoozing, getting angry at Chris ‘the hawk’ Hawkins but for some reason never changing the alarm to a different radio station

7:20 - get out of bed. Have a shit, brush my teeth, shave

7:45 - make a coffee, fire up the laptop for another hard day of graft at the data factory

8 - dunno. Work

Try to sneak a run in at some point in the working day while it’s light, otherwise run after work.

6:30 - cook

7:30ish - eat dinner

8 - film, football, board game or random shite on the telly

10:30 - bed. Read or shag, sometimes both

11-11:30 - go to sleep


Weekends are a giddy mix of cooking, distance running, watching lots of sports on the television, and going down YouTube rabbit holes when I should be asleep
