    Question Daily Routine - What is yours?

    I tend to start off my day with two websites:

    Set - I like this as a good way to wake me up.

    Random word generator - I play about with the words and see what ideas come to mind. Sometimes I get ideas for stuff I'm currently working on, most of the time I just have interesting ideas that are a bit of fun.

    I know I'm a bit eccentric however and was wondering what others do to start off their day when they get to the office?

    I like to start the day with a coffee while reading the news online and catching up on discussion forums (not entirely work related!)

    Although the above can vary because sometimes I often like to just get stuck in immediately to my days work and projects. Always with a coffee in hand though..

    My day starts with a cup of coffee (decaffeinated)

    My online day invariably starts with edugeek to see what's been happening overnight.

    first thing is to try and get in through door before getting stopped/harassed by staff! Then it's into the server room for a quick that all is well. Then it's a glass of water and cereal bar, check helpdesk/EG, then the day begins!

    Open main door, reset burglar alarm, record daily school status on answer machine, check the admin server backup, start the media server back up, turn on the visual display in the concourse, search the Office Manager's drawers for biscuits, make a cup of tea, check my emails, try and get as much done as I can before the teachers get in. Wednesdays, I help the Site Manager test the fire alarms. First Tuesday of each month I clean the Y5/Y6 projector filters and First Thursday the Y7 ones.

    I find it good to have a couple of hours of routine before the phone starts ringing.

    Routine? whats that? usually I end up with jobs to do before I even get to the office. If anyones got time to sit in the office, they've got too much time on their hands!

    Nope - the staff can do that themselves - thanks to Password Control

    In through the door at 7:50. Switch on workstation. Change backup tape over. Get keys out of safe. Turn on photocopier, cctv monitor and printer. Make pot of tea. Phone colleague in her classroom to tell her the tea's made (I make it; she pours it!). Take absence messages off answerphone. Clear emails (mostly junk). (And until recently - playground gate duty from 8:45-8:55). Then make a start on work!

    I'm a creature of habit - has to be done in this order or the day is ruined!

    Day to day varies except for one constant. 18.40pm is poop time. :-)

    Start with a Relentless energy drink, followed by checking backups/antivirus. Then check job list / Email. And when free check edugeek / Microsoft UK education blog.
