This afternoon, on their way from one place to another, my parents dropped in for a cup of tea and a biscuit. They do that a bit; my house is conveniently located for them, plus it contains their grandchildren.

Towards the end of today’s visit, Elspeth expressed a desire to go and stay with her nanny and poppy for a few days. A last minute decision was made, a whirlwind of packing ensued, and off they went, leaving me home with a very tired Evelyn.

Evelyn went to sleep immediately afterwards, and now here I am… effectively alone. I’m not used to this anymore. I really don’t know what to do with myself. I could read, or watch a movie, or study, or sleep. I could eat yummy things without anybody stealing the food from my mouth. I could just sit staring out my front window, except the neighbours might find that a bit creepy.

So what’s it to be? I’ve got Pillars of the Earth on DVD…

  1. Google something of interest, read for 30 minutes, then off to the telly with yummy foods in hand… congratulations.

    Haha it’s a strange feeling! My husband took the Little Mister out the other day for about 1.5 hours. I made dinner ahead of time and then I had time to sit on the couch and veg out watching ADULT DVR shows I’d recorded, but I kept wanting to get up and do more stuff. I was all restless, thinking I wasn’t using my alone time properly! Luckily I slapped myself in the face (metaphorically) and sat my butt back down – just that short amount of time was LOVELY!

What do you think?
