I used to tease my friends for being slaves to their iPhones (I was perfectly happy with my ancient Nokia thank you very much!), but now that I have one I literally cannot live without it. When my alarm goes at 5am the first thing I do is check my phone - Facebook, emails, Instagram - mostly for a message from Chris but also because I am a slave to social media! :)
My second must-have is only a must-have for about 2 months of the year here in Queensland! Lately it's been really chilly in the mornings and evenings (we have a low of 9 degrees Celsius this week! Mind you, that's probably at 2am.) so the first thing I do when I get out of bed is pop on my super cool slippers. :)
Here in Australia we don't drink brewed coffee like in the US/Canada... so my morning coffee is an instant one. I know, I know... not classy! But honestly I prefer it. When I was living in Canada I got used to the taste of brewed coffee (Nabob Breakfast Blend!) but here at home I'm happy with the cheap stuff - as long as it's in a big mug! :) This is my fave:
While I'm drinking my coffee I watch 'Today'. Not much news but lots of laughs! I live by myself - I love the silence in the mornings and the TV to zone out to while I wake up.
Hmmm... seems that a few giggles and zoning out is the common denominator in my mornings! As soon as I hop in the car I pop on Nova 106.9 and listen to Ash, Kip and Luttsy on my way to work. I figure that leaving the house before 7am everyday I deserve a few laughs! :)
So there you have it! My morning must-haves. Link up to share yours (so I can blog stalk you!) and maybe find a few new blogs to follow as well.
