Those who are furloughed, or working from home, just wondering what time you're getting up and getting on with homeschooling/work/whatever else you're filling your days with.
Me about half eight. Though I have had the odd lie in.

Between 7.30 and 8. Children's sleep patterns are all over at the moment, even when I send them to bed at the normal bed time. Use to get up between 6.30 and 7.

I’m WFH. With 2 DC (aged 9 & 12).

DH & I get up at roughly the same time as we did before (5.45 DH, 6.45, me).

He gets straight to work, I got for a run.

I wake the kids at 8.

They still have school work to do, & I really don’t want them to become lazy. The 12 year old in particular would sleep til 11 if I let her.

I’ve been getting up at 5.15 last few weeks to be out with the dogs at 6am.
First work Zoom call starts at 10-10.30 and have another in the afternoon and various meetings in the week at other times so just try and fit home schooling in between.
We’ve missed some tasks so will try and catch up next week when no new fresh school work will be set.

I’m WFH with no kids (am pregnant and exhausted all the time though). I’m getting up 7.30 - 8 which is a gorgeous lie in because when I commuted to work I had to be up at 5.45.

Kids are up by 8 at the latest.
Out on a morning walk I'm jealous at all the unopened curtains and blinds at 11am.
Friends children are often sleeping until lunch time when they start their day giving my friends time to do housework/wfh.

7am, start work at 8, registration for youngest 8.30 so he needs to be done and ready for then

I wake up around 6ish. Few hours of peace until DP wakes up around 9, then DD can be anywhere between 9 and 12. She’s 5, I’ll deal with her sleep pattern when I need to

My day has shifted so I go to bed later, at about 11 or half past rather than ten o'clock.
I wake up at about 8 but sometimes, like today, later, half eight and a couple of times it's been half nine! I love it.

ThatBitch Thu 21-May-20 09:12:33

We are getting up around 8, ready to start home school by about 9.30 and done for 1230. I have a 6 and 8 yr old.

I am usually showering while they eat lunch around 1 though as can't be bothered any earlier.

Malysh Thu 21-May-20 09:14:21

I'd sleep in everyday if I could but my son usually wakes me up around 7am sadly.

SporadicNamechange Thu 21-May-20 09:16:59

DH is working at home, so we’ve been getting up at 7/7.30 as usual. I’m on sick leave from work (and 32 weeks pregnant), so I usually go back to bed for a bit after breakfast.

DS wakes up at the same time every day regardless. He’s been doing all his school work starting at 9 (and always being finished well before lunchtime).

DameHannahRelf Thu 21-May-20 09:17:09

We were getting up at about 9 or 10, then it started to get later and later, as neither of us has been sleeping great, but I'm determined to go back to 9ish again at the latest, or I'll never be able to get us up for work/school if when life goes back to normal. We will still have lie in at the weekend though.

Ilovetea09 Thu 21-May-20 09:29:50

My husband is still going out to work so he's up at 7 and out the door by half past.
Myself and the children (age 6 and 8) seem to wake now at 9.30 every morning. Which is lovely as the day doesn't feel quite so long. They've never really slept well before so I'm making the most of it!

OhWhatFuckeryIsThisNow Thu 21-May-20 09:30:02

I’m not getting up till about 8, usually up at 6. Dh is still working but in his non working days he’s —talking the piss— staying in till about 9.30.

Stannisbaratheonsboxofmatches Thu 21-May-20 09:32:43

9 ish

Which still feels too early for my body clock tbh.

Before we went into lockdown I’d been so exhausted for so long with the enforced lark lifestyle we all have to live.

RoseWharf Thu 21-May-20 09:34:43

6am so I can walk the dog bright and early.

Thighmageddon Thu 21-May-20 09:36:15

Furloughed here and no young children.

I was waking up at gone 9 but I'm now dragging my arse out of bed between 6.30/7 because I'm hoping to be back at work in a couple of weeks so I'll have to be up at 6 every morning.

greenlynx Thu 21-May-20 09:36:51

Between 8 and 9 depending on the day here. I’m busy during the day with DD and she goes to bed later so after 11 pm is the only “me” time when I can watch “horrible news” and work through serious emails. Hence my super late bedtime 1.30 am and late start. I know there is always option to wake up at 6-7 am, but I’m not a morning person at all .

LST Thu 21-May-20 09:36:55

I'm WFH so getting up at 6.30 starting work early means I can finish at about 4.

ferretface Thu 21-May-20 09:37:07

7-7.30 for a bit of pottering and maybe some exercise before logging in at 8.45/9. Dog but no kids.

VoteForPayton Thu 21-May-20 09:37:54

I got made redundant at the end of March and started staying up until 2, 3am and then getting up whenever the kids (5,8) started in about why I wasn't up yet. Made me feel really shit. DH is a SAHD and has been handling things really well in terms of keeping them fed and the house not a total tip.

Fast forward to now, I got offered two jobs and took them both - one is for a company in a different time zone so I wake up at 4.30am for a 5am start. I finish working around 5pm. I'm knackered all the time and the kids aren't really getting any homeschooling done (if that makes anyone feel better).

Off for my 3rd brew of the morning.

44PumpLane Thu 21-May-20 09:38:57

Wake at 5.50am, log on and start work 6am so I can work through and log off at 1.30pm and let my husband go to work.

Two 3 year olds so have to actively look after them meaning we have to shift work our days.

Prior to lockdown I'd get up at 6.30/7.

Redwren Thu 21-May-20 09:39:02

530, I go for a run or walk before the kids get up at 6/630

Funkyslippers Thu 21-May-20 09:43:59

Around 7.30. I watch some TV, have a cuppa, then do a workout on my own, then DD2 will get up and we'll do Joe Wicks together. I'm WFH but don't start till about 10.30. I've always been an early(ish) riser
