Up at 6, breakfast and emails until 6:30; wash, dress and leave by 7:00 to be in work by 7:30. I like to get into work really early and avoid any rushhour traffic. Yey for flexitime!

At the ripe old age of 25 I have a 10.30 bedtime :roll:

I'm up at 6.40 to leave the house at 7.30 after breakfast, getting ready, feeding cats etc. I have really thick hair and if I left it wet in the morning the back would still be wet at the end of the day so that's a no no! I get dropped off at the station and the train leaves at 8.15 and I get into work for 9.30 after a short walk.
I'm always in bed for 11 on school nights. It was 9.30 the other day :lol:

Alarm at 6.10. I can leave house in 20 minutes after breakfast etc, with lunch made night before, clothes ready etc. Then 20 mins to place of work. Into gym by 7am -8am, and into work at 8.20 ish. I love days off best as i don't have to go through all the night before routine. I am a morning person though, so normally wake early.

Radio boots up at 6.05am (I too need those extra 5 mins!). Into shower, dress, make up, eat yoghurt and make lunch and leave the house by at least 6.50 (if it gets to 7am I hit traffic hell). Drive to work and curse traffic for getting earlier and earlier each week. Get to parking area at 7.50... if traffic is bad and I get there any later than this (even 8am) there are no spots. Curses. Walk ten minutes to work and boot up computer. Cry inside. :?

I really feel for all you people! Every day changes for me, the earliest time getting up during the week is 7.15, latest could be 10.30 like today :)

At my last job, I would wake up at 6am (drag myself out of bed around 6.15), leave the house at 7.15am, catch the 7.39am train, arrive at the office around 8.35am. If I wanted to get in earlier, I would get up around 5.30am and catch an earlier train. I miss my old job (hated the commute though) ! :cry:

At my last job I'd get up at half 5, have an hour's drive to be in work for 7.30. Now getting up at 7.30/8 feels like a luxury! Really feel for everyone with early starts, its not so bad in the summer but in the winter when you're getting ready and driving to work in the dark, its so much more tempting to keep hitting snooze!

In my previous job I got up at 6, left the house and 7 and then took two buses and a train to get to work for 8.45.

The job I've recently been offered is a lot closer to home and I'll probably be able to wake up at 7 or even just after.

Novelty wore off a long time ago! I can't do the commute unless I've had a cuppa though! :-)
0330 alarm call, you are hardcore, what time do you go to sleep?

I have now considered getting up at 4.50 (1 hr 30 mins to get ready) and getting my outfit ready the night before. I cant do make-up or hair on the train. My appearance has to be immaculate when i go out th' door. Maybe my standards will lower with time...

Exactly the same times as me!

I snooze my alarm from 6am though.

In my head I have some kind of idea about getting to bed before 11. Never happens.

I can get away with rolling out of bed at 8am to be in for 9 :) Been on placements where I've had to get up at 6:45am, but been very lucky in terms of commuting.

Up at 7, leave by ten to 8 or so, at the desk for 8.30 for some settling in time for official work starting at 9! Always leave on time though!

Me too, until I rolled my car into the back of someone else's whilst applying mascara! :oops:

For me, any earlier than 7am is impossible. At the mo I am getting up at 7am to look snappy and arrive at 9 for my new job... once I've been there a while, I'll prob start rocking up at half nine or ten (leaving half five or six). I just dont do mornings!!
