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.

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
