    Re: after shower

    In AmE, we usually say "I get up and take a shower." (Although "have a shower" is not completely unheard of, and people will understand what you mean.)

    The next sentence should read:
    After my shower, I have breakfast.

    "After showering, I have breakfast" is the way I'd say it.
