    Re: I looked forward to going to work

    For the sentence to be grammatically correct, 'every day' would have to be two words and it would have to end with a full stop (period).

    Also, the pronoun "I" is always capitalized, even when it is in the middle of a sentence.

    Re: I looked forward to going to work

    If I get it right what you're trying to say, I would modify your sentence as follows
    'Every morning I would look forward to going back to work because of all of the fun I used to have there'.

    Disclaimer: Not a native speaker, just have been living in the States for 2 years. This answer was mostly being driven by my subconscious, not the formal grammar rules :)

    1. Everyday means ordinary. Every day means at least once in every 24-hour period.

    2. You're asking a question, so your sentence needs to end with a question mark.

    Re: I looked forward to going to work

    It would be less wordy and more natural to say "I looked forward to going to work every day because it was fun" or "... because I had fun there".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
