The first thing I do in the morning is have breakfast with my family. I then take my son to school which is located by a lovely park 10 minutes from home (Wandsworth Park). Then, I take the train to Waterloo and the tube to London Bridge. It takes me approximately 1 hour to do all of this. Before going to work, I make sure the house is left in good shape! Sometimes I manage to write a few emails.
