I’m not quite sure where my morning has gone, but it’s already time to exercise. I’m out the door and down my 77 stairs to go for an hour solo walk. If I’m staying home for most of the day, it gives me an opportunity to start my day with a clear head and some fresh air. It’s a time to forget about your worries.
OK, I’ve had enough “me time”, it’s time to get to work. I’ve got a desk set up in our bedroom, which is where I love to work. It’s got a great view looking out onto the water. I get stuck into my emails for the day. That includes emails from my lawyering job. Every 30 minutes, I get up and stretch my legs. I’ll also grab a glass of water and another coffee.
It’s my second favourite time of the day ... lunch time! I’m loving eggs, avo, tomato and feta on toast at the moment – I’ve been having it for the past month. It’s definitely my go-to.
Time to do more emails, calls, whatever it may be. Work is so varied for me and changes daily.
I’m not someone who has a lot of food at home and normally head out to the supermarket daily. It’s a good excuse to get out of the house.
I turn on the news again and cook dinner. I love to make vegie soup or anything from Jude’s Food cookbook in winter!
It’s Timmy Time! My husband, Tim Robards, is currently living in Melbourne, so I would normally call him around dinner. I would’ve already spoken to him a couple of times throughout the day, but dinner is a good time to have a longer chat about the day.
Before I settle in for the night, I take a magnesium bath. It’s just so relaxing!
TV time – two of my favourite shows at the moment are Power and The Loudest Voice. They’re so good and they’re both on Stan.
Ugh, I’ve done it again –I’ve watched too many episodes and it’s getting late! It’s time for bed. I will usually call Tim again to say night, night!
First app checked in the morning?
I try not to look at my phone until about an hour after I wake up. It’s good for the mindset to have that disconnect, but it’s something I’ve had to work on. When I get to it, I check WhatsApp first, as my sister who lives in New York usually writes to me while I’m sleeping – catch up times with the sis!
Early riser or night owl?
Night owl for sure! Sometimes I don’t get to bed until midnight.
Go-to WFH outfit?
I’m trying to break the habit but it’s usually gym wear (chic of course, haha). Loving the new Camilla and Marc sports range.
What do you wear to bed?
Short shorts and a T-shirt. Not very glam, but it’ll do.
Uggs or slippers?
Slippers. I’ve got these cute and very extra slippers from Peter Alexander and I adore them!
Your WFH essentials?
MacBook, iPhone ... and a face mask.
FaceTime or TikTok?
Currently FaceTime but I’m [getting into] TikTok. Look away now!
Number of unread emails?
10 – I don’t like clutter.
Serial – This American Life.
Go-to comfy brands?
Rebecca Vallance and Bec & Bridge knits. Also loving Camilla and Marc gym wear and basically anything from Viktoria & Woods. So many must-haves this winter!
