Here I am again, alone.
No, I’m not sad about it… Son has gone back to uni for his last few weeks, and hubby back in London at work. This is the norm on a Monday evening. Sometimes I hate it and feel sad to be alone… Others, like tonight, with the sun just falling behind the trees, I am glad to be alone.
Here, in my house which I love, I am Queen! I can wander from room to room, singing at the top of my voice ( no near neighbours!), I can be naked, I can tidy up the detritus which is invariably left behind after a family weekend… Or I can chose not to! It is up to me! So is what I watch on TV, if anything!!
These days it is increasingly difficult to find something I want to watch! Sorry, but I’m just not into “reality” TV, especially when you know it’s scripted! I just don’t get the point! Yes, I’ve got Sky…seems I’m paying a lot of money for a lot of crap that I don’t want to watch! There are those nuggets of course, that we record to play back at just the right moment…that is tonight for me! But there isn’t anything I have recorded! Bugger! Oh well, I have the odd 500 DVDs-surely I can find something amongst them to watch?? Ha, what’s the betting I can’t make my mind up! Too much choice!
Boy, I sound like a Grumpy Old Woman, and this was supposed to be a positive, Woopie- style of blog! It still is! Yes, it is! The house is vaguely tidy, I have sorted out TVs and rooms, the washing is almost done…the Housewife Side of me is sort of happy that I have done some work. The Diva Side of me has managed to belt out the odd number without the animals running for cover…tho there were a few odd looks!
What I really love is the fact I can go to bed when I want and read for as long as I want! I can fall asleep with the light on, the TV on, the radio…whatever I want! Yes, I prefer to snuggle up to Hubby, talk over the day, comment on our son, kiss goodnight and turn off the light, and I ge to do that at the weekend, and sometimes during the week; but tonight the bed (and my time) is mine!!
I am certainly one of the luckiest peeps alive! I do thank God for that, and count my blessings, and I’m sorry if I sound smug, but tonight I LIKE BEING ALONE!
