Firstly, let’s begin with the obvious. Not every morning is perfect and if you read this and think “wow, that’s organised!” or “man I can’t even think straight before 12pm” you are not alone. I’m right there with you. This is my morning routine WHEN everything is going to plan, I’m caffeinated and on the ball!
Secondly – I don’t usually start this routine until after I’ve dropped my daughters at school. To me it’s infinitely harder to try and concentrate on admin work when I’ve got “mummy where is my homework?”, “mummy, she stole my identical white sock!” and “mummy, she’s just poured coco pops all over her pristine uniform!”
I walk the little
monsters angels to school and come back ready to Etsy. When it’s half term or school holidays I tend to either creep downstairs before they’re awake or allow morning TV and brekkie to give me some peace. It takes me around half an hour – 45 minutes to do this following list.
