On having the house to oneself

Last week Carrie from Every Word's a Purl wrote about how her behaviour is different when her fiance is away from home.

A number of people shared their 'house to themselves' habits in the comments to that post, and it got me to thinking - how am I different when the Boy isn't around?

I couldn't really think of anything at the time.

Now, here I am.

Curled up on the couch, wearing his favourite hoody.

Two days' worth of breakfast dishes on the coffee table next to me.

Preparing to watch my Justin Timberlake live FutureSex/LoveShow concert dvd....

Hmmm, well, I guess the knitting doesn't change ;)

So, what's your guilty home alone secret?

besos =)

ps. Shedir is finished!!! Cast-off and wove in the ends on the bus this morning =) Show you the pics tomorrow


  1. I'm impressed you wove in the ends ON THE BUS!

    My guilty pleasure while Mr QM is away (it doesn't happen very often, unfortunately) is to make a big casserole dish of macaroni cheese with tomato and LOTS of white sauce, and spend the next 4 days eating it. Of course I'm 5 kilos heavier when he comes home ...

  2. dude I was totally going to make macaroni cheese tonight til I scored a noodle house laksa dinner date with J-Mo!!
    Mmmm LOVE macaroni cheese!!!

  3. oh nice post! I am different when Sean is away. I'm sure of it. I'm gonna think about it and do a post.

    Oh I meant to say, I saw your comment on Jejune's blog the other about being bananaphobic. I'm right there with you on that. Disgusting things. I hate them!

  4. I don't live with my boyfriend, but if we go out and he's not around (or if I go out by myself) I flirt a lot with other guys. I've done that since I was very little, it's not something I really think about, but I mind myself when he's around. I also dance (if possible) with other guys, which he doesn't much fancy me doing either. :P At least not strangers. He'd rather I danced with him, and I'm sorry to say, but the boy has no moves. At all. It's not that I'm out to get another boy, I just like the attention. :D

    When I'm at home by myself with no mum or brother around, I have my door open or sit in the living room (we're odd in our family - we lock ourselves in our room. I think this has more to do with my mother, but oh well), shower with the bathroom door open so I can listen to music and walk around nekkid. ;) I also eat precisely what I want to, leave dishes and glasses everywhere and put Courtney Love or something similar on and turn up the volume. :D

  5. Isn't it so great to "treat" yourself when you are home alone? I eat meals that are NOT well-balanced, stay in my p.j. far too long (or put them on far too early) and watch soap operas while I knit. :)

  6. Great idea for a post!

    When I've got the house to myself I don't usually get dressed - and I don't mean I'm naked!!! I usually wear my pyjamas all day. I'll usually shower, and then put the pjs on again!

    And I watch lots of tv that husby isn't fond of. Yay!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Have a nice day =)
