Routine? Get up, await arrival of mindees, have mad mad mad fun all day, await collection of mindees, mumsnet/chocolate. What more could you want?
Make sure you take mindees out somewhere every day, preferably so you can have a bit of adult conversation too, to prevent your brain turning to mush.
Don't do paperwork until some of it falls off the pile. Pay your tax on time. Dust everywhere if you are due your inspection.
Have lots and lots of fun, and remind yourself that you can go and get a Grown-Up Job another day.

This is my routine
7.45 Breakfast, clean teeth then quiet play
8.30 School run
9.00 1st Planned activity/playing
10.30 Wash and snack
11.00 2nd planned activity/playing
12.00 Tidy up time
12.15 Mindees go home!
I use an egg timer to help my mindees with my routine eg "5 minutes then we'll go out" they now that when the timer goes off they have to go out!
It works a treat until they can tell the time.
