My routine: Fall out of bed Stagger to shower Wash hair Drink tea brought up by butler DH Apply make up (2 mins) Top up tea from pot left on tray on bed Dry hair (20 mins...it's thick) Get dressed, drinking more tea Eat breakfast with strong fresh coffee Talk to children Brush teeth Go to work
From waking up to out the door is one hour. Can do it in 45 mins too. Am very organised! I know what I wearing tomorrow down to underwear and have put coffee in the pot / filled kettle / put vit tablet in glass to be filled with water while I clean my teeth. Coffee brews while I'm in the shower. Gym bag sorted when I get on from work so just double checked in the morning. I go to the loo probably twice in that time too!
Fancy. I wistfully remember those days. I am imagining you as a wealthy young free and single type. Here's me.
