My man and my boys are gone.

They’ve been gone for four days. They ought to be home at midnight, I’m heading to bed now. Hopefully I hear them when they come in, even though the boys are sure to be asleep and their Daddy will gently carry them to their beds, it will be nice to kiss the foreheads of my sleeping cherubs.

It was my sister-in-laws 40th birthday in Cairns. They’ve been celebrating with all the family up there. My bulging belly and I stayed at home. I’ve enjoyed it. I like the time by myself. Although, I must admit that for an hour or so each day I’ve caught up with friends and family. But I’ve also read a book, had lots of sleeps and spent Saturday in my PJ’s, until I had to get dressed for a nice dinner with my Dad and sister. It’s been lovely.

But the single life is not my allotment in life, and I will welcome back all my boys with open arms!

I can’t wait for cuddles in the morning!

How long has it been since you’ve had the house to yourself? Do you, or don’t you like being at home alone?

  1. I get the house to myself fairly often, and I LOVE it!! It gives me a break from having to do everything and just lay about and do nothing. I love my kids and husband so much, and love having them around, but it is really nice to have some time out for me. So glad you’ve had a lovely couple of days cooking your babies, you are very smart to have stayed home…..long drives with pregnant bellies is very tiring.

  2. I’m not so good at being home alone. I fell as though I lose all sense of time without anybody moving around me. When my husband’s on day shift and my kids are at school, I tend to stay out of the house!

    Once my husband took the kids away with him for a week. I thought I would get so much done, but I spent most of the time staring out the windows wondering what they were doing…

  3. Ahhhh! Alone time! I love it! Don’t get it very much but love, love, love it.
    Like to get into the hobby room and scrap book as much as I want …
