How long does it take you to get ready for work?
Depends on what day, either I’m doing some housework or getting the little one ready for a tow to nursery. Either way the alarm goes of at 7:00, drag my arse out of bed by 7:15, out of door around 8:35 or 8:15 if doing the nursery run, ride 6 miles, get to work for 8:55.

5:15 – alarm

8:00 – heading home on bike
8:30 – into the shower + shave
8:40 – get dressed
8:50 – out the door on motorbike
9:00 – in the office to munch on breakfast
Nearly 4 hours from waking to office, but I don’t just lounge around 😀

6:30ish Missus gets up, I listen to her getting ready while I snoozePosted 4 years ago
7:00 – 8:35 Coffee, Toast, then morning ablutions, interspersed with procrastination. It’s mainly procrastination. This morning it was watching ‘This is Peaty’ on Youtube.
8:35 – Time to leave. Blunder round the house looking for bike kit and cursing. Usually a missing arm warmer, glove, or bike lock key. Leave the house when I have finally got it together.
25 minutes of nailing myself on the bike.
I have a regime.. I de-cloak when I get in the night before, then set out new clean Shirt, get another Suit out, new Tie, clean undies then hang that lot up whilst I shower.. This leads to me getting out of bed the following morning, showering and re-cloaking in 15mins and out thas door like.. 😀Posted 4 years agofreeagentMember

Depends whether Susanna Reid is on Breakfast or not….
Need to factor in an additional 5 minutes if so? 😉
It’s funny how much it can vary with the weather. If it’s bright and sunny outside, everything seems to happen faster; if it’s grey and overcast, everything’s in slow-mo.Posted 4 years agoLesterMember

6.20: My alarm clock goes off – the alarm consists of the neighbour’s daughter arriving to park her car outside parents house so I get woken by shouts of “back a bit! turn yer wheel! well done luv!”
The daughter is 37. She’s needed the same instructions every weekday for the 6 years I’ve lived in that house. 🙄

Mrs North, Mme North and I are all terrible in the mornings. For me and Mme North, this is explained by being nightowls. For Mrs North, she can go to bed early, have 12 hours sleep and still feel ropey in the morning.Posted 4 years agoel_boufadorSubscriber
