What do you do for the 85 minutes between waking up and leaving for work?   [ bordeaux_vojvodina 1 year ago ]

Wake Up - 7:30 (sometimes 7:50 tbh) Commute - 15 minutes Start work: 09:00 Finish work - 17:30 - 18:00   [ ownedbyollie 1 year ago ]

Wake up 8am Leave house at 8.15 Commute 45mins Work starts 9am Work finishes 5.30pm   [ amijustinsane 1 year ago ]

Usually 40 mins to 1 hour, depending on where I am that day. Again, start times are variable- I try to be doing work by 10.30am but I'm rubbish at mornings. Sometimes if I work from home for at least part of the day I'll start work over breakfast around 8am. I don't really have a finish time. I should work about 8-8.5 hours per day but it doesn't really always happen like that. We're a quality over quantity team so as long as you're hitting targets and getting stuff done you're good. I need around 1.5-2 hours in the morning to get me from caveman-like stumbling and groaning to bright eyed and bushy tailed ready to work. That's before I even leave the house!   [ SuzyJTH 1 year ago ]

Bed tester, am I right? Living the dream.   [ SuzyJTH 1 year ago ]

Early Shift: Up at 5:00am Leave at 5:45am Door to door is roughly 40 mins, but I spend the extra grabbing a coffee before work. Finish at 4pm, realistically finish at 5pm, home by 6pm. Late shift (either 11 or 12 start depending on day of week) Up between 8:30-9:30 Grab some food, potter around Leave between 9:45 and 10:45. Again, grab a coffee before work with the extra time. Finish at either 8pm or 9pm (generally closer to the half hour of each though.)   [ retromancing 1 year ago ]

You have added an extra wake up somewhere in between arriving and leaving office   [ dunkirk2605 1 year ago ]

Wake up 8ish. Commute 45 minutes on the motorbike. 1 hour 30 on the overground and walking if I'm going for beers in the evening (it's 1 hour 15 if I change at Canada Water, but bugger that). Show up to work 10ish. Rather flexible when I rock up. Finish work around 5. Although I do one day a week where I work until 8-9. WFH 2-3 days a week. Where I get up at 9:30, start work at 10 and work until 5. Have a rather good work life balance.   [ Kaer 1 year ago ]

Wake up 05:00, leave house 05:30, 45 minute commute so arrive at work 06:15 giving enough time to potter around before starting work at 06:30. Finish work between 18:30-19:00. For night shifts just add twelve hours to all those timings.   [ papillonpark 1 year ago ]

Gym mornings: Wake up: 6:10 Commute: 30 minutes. Start work: 9:00 Finish work: 18:00 but I usually leave 17:30. None gym mornings. Wake up: 7:15   [ kieero_11 1 year ago ]

Radio at 6.30. Eyes open 7-7.30. If working from home log on about 8.30, otherwise about 50 mins by tube or 25-60 minutes drive depending heavily on traffic. Soon it will be more like awake at 5.30, train at 6, Paddington at 7.30, office at 8.15. That's going to hurt a bit.   [ jollygoodvelo 1 year ago ]

Wake up at 8.30 am Sit at my desk at home at 9 am Work from home till whenever I feel like not working anymore   [ fishandbanana 1 year ago ]

Wake up 7.30 -> get out of bed 8 -> leave for work 8.30 -> get to work 9 (30 mins commute). Usually get in 10 minutes late because I leave too late. I have rather flexible hours and work as much or little as I have to, but I'm supposed to finish 4.30.   [ lIlIlIIIlI 1 year ago ]
