I start my day at 6 am by talking my dog for a walk around Princes Park before heading back home for breakfast and getting ready for the day ahead. Once I’ve completed my morning chores, I jump on my bike and ride into work.
I like to get into the office around 8 am for a coffee with my colleagues and to cover the important topics like the footy, weekend plans and cringe-worthy reality TV. Following this, it’s time to head back to my desk to go through emails and action any urgent tasks I have. Once I’ve had enough of my inbox, I like to catch up with my project teams to discuss any upcoming meetings and actions required for the day.
Once I’ve caught up with my teams, I head off to a site meeting & walk with our client and consultant team to inspect a new Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Facility which is approaching practical completion. As practical completion is only a few weeks away there is several action items and deadlines that need to be confirmed with the builder and consultant team. Once I return to the office I put these action items together and issue to the team.
My favourite time of the day, lunchtime. Today I’ve got some quality leftovers so once I’ve heated it up, I grab a seat in the family room just in time for the doubleheader newspaper quiz. This is where my expertise in true and false questions shines. Following the quiz, I’ll go for a quick walk outside before getting into the 2nd half of the day.
After lunch, it’s time to get stuck into writing a report for a monthly Project Control Group meeting that is due at the end of the week. I’ll throw my headphones in to ensure I get the most out of the next 3 hours. These 3 hours are usually broken up by a quick flick through the newspaper and a cup of tea. Once my report is complete, I will sit down with my Project Team to review the report and issue to the Project Control Group.
By 4 o’clock its time to start looking at what I’ve got on tomorrow. As I’ve got a site meeting in Ballarat, I make sure I’ve got a car booked and prepare printouts for the meeting.
By 5 pm its time to pack up my desk and head down to the end of trip facilities to grab my bike. After work, I head to the gym to exert the last of my energy for the day before heading home to wind down.
By 7 pm its time to take the dog for one last walk before cooking dinner and settling in for some much-needed couch time. This is where ill take the opportunity to do some reading and watch some TV.
