    Re: everyday or every day?

    "everyday" and "every" are both adjectives.
    So I would use "every day".

    Here is a way of rephrasing the sentence:

    "For me, getting up at 6 o' clock is an everyday occurrence"

    So in my original sentence 'every day' would be used as an adverb. Isn't it?

    Cheeky. My time is very important, so...

    Well, you might say the phrase is adverbial, but "every" is an adjective and "day" is a noun; "everyday" is an adjective.
