Ok, so heres mine

Wake up feeling exhausted after being up most of the night on MN amongst other things.
Pop to the loo
Breakfast is normally a couple of slices of toast, coffee from my new coffee maker, today I choose Bold Americano, which immediately uplifts me as the aroma fills the kitchen. I also have a glass of fruit juice and a actimel (something in my head tells me it will fight off that nasty bug thats doing the rounds)

I take breakfast up to my bed and snaffle it. Then I have sneeze after sneeze (normal for me every morinng after eating) I am working in my bedroom as my DDs BF is now working from home and has a lot of calls from solicitors and zoom calls so I leave him with some privacy while I prop myself up on the bed with my laptop. I have desk I bought specifically for working from home, but its cold out of bed as I have the window wide open to keep the room ventilated.

My DD pops her head in my room and asks me if I have seen her UGG boots, I say no, so she asks to borrow mine, then notices I have 4 UGG boots in a row...ahem (but in fairness I did buy them in error, I didnt realise I ordered 2 and as she is the same size I gave her the others) she then puts them on and leaves for work, she works in a nursery.

I then sit and think about all the work I have to do, while catching up on MN and writing this pointless thread.

Have a good day everyone.

I need to add weighing myself to my routine but am scared that the scales wont give me the response I would like sad

I do like your day better than mine, it sounds very relaxed smile

4.45am - wake up, go to F45 class
6.30am - shower, wake kids up
6.45am - make up, kids breakfast
7.00am - shout at kids to hurry up
7.15am - leave house and drop kids at school
7.30am - get to the office.

When we were in strict lockdown from Mar-Jun last year, my morning was very different. Working at 4am, yoga at 5.30am, back to work until kids woke up, then juggling online zoom lessons, shouting at the kids, making lunch, having nervous breakdown, more work zoom meetings, 5pm run, 6pm dinner, 7-9pm more work. It was relentless and exhausting.

Why do you sneeze after eating OP?

I have no idea about this. I used to think I was allergic to alcohol as I noticed it particularly after eating out at restaurants when I would have a glass of wine with my meal and get a blocked nose and then sneeze non stop for about half an hour. It became a joke with my family and friends when I started I just couldnt stop, now its when I eat anything at all it happens.

Oh I forgot about that part of my routine, I do listen to the radio, although it has to be LBC at the moment, I go through phases. I always used to love Radio London with Robbie Vincent when I was a lot younger, I had an image of this gorgeous man, and then , well I saw him and his voice didnt match his image, I changed over to LBC from that point smile

Mat leave - so very different to my working routine. Also very much dependent on what’s going on with my 5 month old - she sometimes sleeps till 8, sometimes is awake at 5 ready to start the day. 7 is average ish so I’ll go with that.

6ish - wake up (naturally, not alarm), go for a wee. Get back in bed tired after being woken up by either my baby or my ancient dog or both at various points in the night.

Dog will start moaning at some point for a wee so I ring DH’s phone to wake him up (he’s in the spare room as DD still cosleeps at least part of each night). DH gets up, carries ancient dog downstairs as he’s so ancient he can’t do stairs anymore, sorts dogs medicine breakfast etc, makes us both a cup of tea and makes DD a bottle.

7ish - DD wakes up, DH will change her nappy, I feed her whilst DH makes us another cup of tea. DH then starts getting ready for work (at home) and is logged on to computer for 7.30 and I usually play with DD with her toys/ read books/ sing - basically however I can amuse her without getting out of bed or expending too much energy.

8am - DD restless so I get up and sit her in her little chair thing in the bathroom whilst I shower and get ready for the day. She enjoys this as she likes to look at the bathroom tiles and finds them quite fascinating. Back in the bedroom and get dressed, make up on if I’m bothering that day (rare) whilst chattering away to DD and keeping her amused. Then get her changed and dressed for the day.

8.30 downstairs with DD. Sit her in high chair, take dog out in garden for a quick wee, take my vitamins, wash and sterilise bottles, empty dishwasher - usually put music on whilst this is happening and turn it into a bit of a song and dance show for DD. Make myself a cup of tea and piece of toast. Sit and eat it at the table with DD in the high chair next to me. She’s not started solids yet but we’re getting used to the high chair and being at the table. Also usually have a banana.

8.50 ish - go into the living room and play on play mat with dd.

9.15 - depending on weather either wrap dd up and put her in pram or sling for a walk. Actually I’ll make a tea in a travel mug first to take with me. Try to persuade ancient dog out for a walk also - rarely successfully. Wander the streets or go to the park until dd falls asleep. If weather is really awful or I think it might be better later in the day skip the walk altogether and try to get dd to nap on the sofa. If successful then stick an episode of whatever I’m currently watching on Netflix (she’ll only contact nap so great excuse to sit on my arse).

6.20-6.30 - get dressed into joggers & vest.

6.30 - makeup (not full face) & dry hair.

7am - Wake toddler & wake husband, change nappy, wet wipe rub down, put clothes on while she's having milk, brush hair & teeth etc etc

7.10am - go downstairs with toddler put CBeebies on for 10 mins & pack lunch for me and get her bag, shoes & coat ready.

7.20am - get work uniform on.

7.30 - last cup of coffee & medication then leave around 7.40am for work & nursery.
