Today I found myself in a rather unusual situation.
I have the whole house to myself. For the whole weekend.
I am officially home alone for three days.
The Bloke is away on a course with one of his favourite photographers in Manchester. The course and walk-round session on Saturday takes up most of the day, so he is staying in a hotel the night before and after. He’s nervous, but I’m incredibly proud of him for putting himself in a situation that I know makes him hugely uncomfortable – he doubts his abilities as a photographer (despite the fact that his photographs are fabulous) and I’m hoping that it will prove to be a huge confidence boost and a great opportunity to meet some new people.
It’s rare that he is away overnight (and certainly not for a whole weekend). Of course, he’s my favourite person and I always miss him when he’s not here, but it’s nice to have a bit of ‘me time’ occasionally. Consequently, the cat and I have decided to have a relaxing weekend before The Bloke and I have the madness of next week with Part 2 of his birthday present – Airbnb, Harry Potter World and Wicked.
We’re already stocked up with our favourite films, Bullet Journal supplies, bath products and snacky treats to indulge ourselves (well, I’ll be the one having the hot baths – he’s not a fan of water), and I’m very excited. He has his own chair, blanket and a new mouse toy all set up, I have my favourite snuggly blanket from IKEA, the heating is on and we’re going to settle in for a self-care focused few days of awesomeness.
What about you guys? Do you enjoy a bit of alone time occasionally?
