When we talk about regular habit or routine in English, we use the present simple tense form.

- It was There were three of them to do the work but too much many things to do
In English, we often use the ‘dummy’ subject pronoun there to show the existence of an object (or an amount of the object). We use many to show an indefinite quantity of a countable noun. As thing(s) is countable, we can’t use ‘much’. We use ‘much’ with uncountable nouns.

- I am getting get up at 6.00am every day to have a shower and wash my hairs

The sentence starter I hope is followed by another subject pronoun (I, he, it etc). We use the verb make with the noun mistake.
