My normal routine on days when I am not working and I am home alone is when I get out of bed, I will spend a couple of hours in front of the pc doing 'stuff'. It may even be longer. If I am up at seven, then there is not much point rushing off anywhere before ten.
But what did I do in the morning before the days of the information super highway? I know I used to read a lot more. More newspapers, magazines and books. But I don't think I used to bound out of bed to read. I have never watched daytime tv, let alone morning tv. I don't think I sat and stared at the radio where the voice was coming from. We did have pets, so I suppose I might have spent some time with them, or at least cleaning up after them. There used to be big gardens to look after, but I wouldn't be out in the frost or the mist to do that first thing in the morning.
Nope, it remains a bit of a mystery how I used to occupy myself early to mid morning before the pc arrrived.
