I would take the day below with a pinch of salt because like most people, I try to work to an ideal schedule which doesn't always materialize.
Generally speaking though, the day laid out below is pretty reflective of my actual life on a weekday.
6:45am: My alarm radio ticks on to a bit of Radio 3. Depending on how bombastic the piece playing is, I leave it on or click it off.
7:00am: My "proper" alarm goes off and it's time to start the day! First things first, coffee and lots of it.
7:30 - 8:30am: Every other day I try to head to the gym first thing in the morning. This is because I'm usually too tired/lazy to go in the evening, so I have to make sure I get it out the way.
8:30ish-9:00am: Shower and get ready. More coffee and a hearty breakfast. Quite often Des cooks something delicious (yes, I realise I am a very lucky lady!)
9:00am: Check emails and catch up on the news of the day. This may or may not involve Buzzfeed, depending on how nihilistic I'm feeling....
9:30am: - I'm now either in my city centre office or working from home. I'f I'm at home I am probably entertaining a small feline creature on my lap whilst I work.
11:00: More coffee and a quick stretch of my legs.
12-1:00pm: Lunch usually occurs in this window. At home I'll make something with Des, at the office I'll head to the staff canteen.
1:30pm: If I haven't come in for the morning, I usually cycle or walk into the office for the afternoon. Emails are checked again. If I'm in the office, I will try to head out for a breath of fresh air.
3:00pm: More coffee. This is also when I like to make all necessary phone calls as I find people are a bit more relaxed and chatty this time of the day. My attention span for written things has also slightly waned...
5-6:00pm: If I'm not staying in the city centre for an event or meeting, I try to get home by 6pm if possible. If I'm staying out, I usually try to grab a bit of alone time before anything starts.
6-7:00pm: Dinner and an episode or two on Netflix. I am currently obsessed with The Good Wife!
8-9:00pm: I generally get another spurt of energy after dinner, so I use this to check emails and wrap up any tasks from the day. I then like to plan out my action list for the next day and double check my schedule.
9:-10:00pm: I'm not always that good at doing this, but I try to get in a bit of reading before bed. I'm currently reading a translated version of "Invisible Cities" by Italo Calvino
11:00pm: Lights out and sleep.
honest, I've been putting off writing it as I know it's going to ruffle a few feathers and generally provoke a difficult analysis of our industry.
The blogosphere I refer to in this deconstruction is a mostly female space. (There are many expressions of gender on the internet obviously, but the industry I experience is predominantly created by people who identify as women).
Again this is a Sunday Summation covering the past two weeks, as I must admit this whole series slightly slipped my mind last weekend... oops.
As you may be aware, back in June Des and I took part in The Clearing Project - a post-apocalyptic vision of the future set in the grounds of Compton Verney, a Stately home turned Art Gallery in rural Warwickshire.
