N is for …

…Nobody home but me! Now please, don’t feel sorry for me, don’t feel you need to keep me company, don’t feel you need to offer me hospitality. For the first time in, oh I don’t know, probably a couple of years I will be home alone at the weekend!!

John and Son2 are off to Newcastle for the weekend for the penultimate match of the football season, I had the chance to go with them but I thought they needed a bit of father & son time and more importantly I would love some ME time!

So here’s the plan (sort of) 9.30 – manicure, 12 ish – lunch with Janet then back home maybe do a bit of gardening (weather permitting – don’t worry I’ll wear gloves to protect the manicure!!), perhaps catch some of the football on the radio and generally do my own thing!

Later I’ll catch up with the other Alphabe-Thursday contributions and maybe another blog or two. Then some evening TV – I’ll have total control of the remote control so it will be my choice. Then, of course, my eyes will start to close and I’ll drift off to, hopefully, a good night’s sleep – the whole bed all to myself! Bliss.

Then Sunday, I’ll laze around for a while, maybe take a quick trip into town – maybe, just maybe I’ll sort my shoes out (John – if you’re reading this, please note the double maybe) and then they’ll be home. And of course I will have missed them both. Have fun boys!

I’ve just realised that we’re over halfway through the alphabet, Thursday just won’t seem the same when we’ve finished!

  4. Enjoy your time. I love the occasional break when I have the entire house to myself. Right now, with DH starting his business from home and Cait being home this semester, those times are few and far between. Have a great weekend! Kathy

  14. Oh, the bliss of some alone time. Your plan sounds great. I'd add a bottle of wine to the whole control the remote section of the day, and a great movie that hubby doesn't mind missing. Enjoy!

  15. I'm glad you have a little quite "me" time this weekend.

    Mr. Jenny is gone until Friday night and so far I'm kind of liking it...

    Perhaps in your spare time you can embark upon a naumachy ...

    although why you would want to instead of watching girl TV is beyond me.

    Thanks for an interesting and Nifty "N" post!

    Now go enjoy the quiet!

    A+

  16. I did not use to like being home alone. Hubs had to take a job in another city for a year and he was only home on the weekends. Now I very seldom get time alone and I sometimes would like it.

  18. I hope you have some great 'me' time! The Great Dane used to travel a lot so I had years and years of 'me' nights. Now he's at home and I'm the one travelling for work and I miss him!
