Morning Routine

My weekday morning routine usually consists of me trying to wake a 12 year old to get up, breakfasted and out for school whilst attempting to make myself look presentable for work.  This is usually as follows:
  • Alarm
  • I call the 12 year old to get up
  • I use the bathroom whilst the 12 year old grunts and protests and falls back asleep
  • I come out of the bathroom and call the 12 year old to get up
  • I go into my bedroom to dress
  • I come out of my bedroom and call the 12 year old to get up
  • I go downstairs and let the dog out, switch the kettle on and bustle around for a few minutes
  • I go to the bottom of the stairs and call the 12 year old to get up
  • I stomp up the stairs muttering under my breath and drag a 12 year old out of bed by his right foot
  • I go back downstairs, make a quick brew, haphazardly slap some make-up on  
  • The 12 year old ambles downstairs, brushes his hair and gets his own breakfast and walks out of the door
  • I carry on troweling the make-up on for another five minutes until I look presentable and also head off out the door
