I spend quite a bit of time rattling round this big old flat by myself in the week when el chappo is away with work and I’m not working/gymming/swanning around the town being fabulous.
I had quite a bit of practice at keeping myself occupied when I had my own flat and became a master of spending time wisely (although not always productively). I am a firm believer in the phrase ‘If you’re bored then you must be boring too’ (courtesy of the lovely Piebald) and I honestly think I’ve never got to a point where I’ve really been bored. There’s always something to do!
Anyway, I thought I’d compile my list of essentials for keeping oneself sane when living alone.
A good book or two (currently re-reading All my best friends are superheroes):
Awesome records (currently playing The Wedding Present):
Cups of tea (and sometimes, just sometimes, coffee. I’m not at work now):
Something to write stories in (It’s coming along nicely):
Lots of internet (all the sixes, clickety click):
A Labbit for company (rrrrrraow):
Nice things to think about:
That’s about all you need.
