Alone time

I love it when my husband is away for work.

I love my own space.

I love chatting to him on the phone, sharing our different experiences of the day.

I love the silence.

I love watching ‘comfort telly’ – the kind of programmes or films you’ve watched a million times and can recite word for word, but which are a soothing, comforting background to the evening’s relaxation.

This is what I’ve been up to during my most recent alone evenings.


Granny stripe ripple by Lucy of Attic24 – I have already designated the spare room in our new house as my office/den/parlour, and the sofa is going to to be adorned with around two square metres of colourful crocheted blankety goodness.

This is a bit of a departure for me as I’m not usually a colours person – but I adore the way this is working up. As a novice crocheter it’s truly bizarre trying to unlearn my years of knitting – I love trying something new.

What do you do with alone time?
