Home Alone For The First Time

It’s an extraordinary day.  I’m going to be home alone for 24 hours (overnight) for the first time in over 4 years.

Certainly the first time since I got ill with ME.

For one day I am responsible for looking after myself.  Well, that is, aside from all the strategic pre-planned care from Growler including meals to heat up with crocks at the ready in the kitchen.  He is amazing.

There’s 7 hours of international rugby union on the TV to pacify me. Growler is off to Wales to watch his national team live inthe stadium for the tournament champions decider. Lucky him 🙂

So I need to go slow and steady to pace myself through the day.  I’m feeling OK about it all.  I just have to not get over-excited about having the place to myself and do anything silly, or at least anything silly that can wait!

    Home alone sounds great to me! My two sons and I have all been sick all week – trapped in the family room watching Disney Channel and Nickelodeon!

    Enjoy your alone time – it sounds heavenly!
