Why I hate living alone

10 reasons why I hate living alone (primary school age children don't count):

1 Shouting at the TV becomes pointless & jeuvenile

2 You end up with loads of half used tins/packets/jars as produce is not designed for cooking for one

3 The knowledge that you've got all evening to do something, means you don't start it till bedtime

4 Bed is somewhere you go to sleep & wait for tomorrow to start

5 You turn into a slob, because who knows? who cares?

6 there is no-one to rant at over lifes everyday problems, so stress levels rise

7 There is no-one to rant at you about lifes every day problems, so you feel less smug & secure in yourself

8 You suddenly notice how many noises your house/neighbourhood makes

9 Your phone bill is astronomical

10 Your mother thinks she can tell you how to live your life again.

Ok, I admit it, I'm not good at living on my own. in fact, I hate it. I've managed to avoid it pretty much all my life. Even when I was travelling around the world, I met up with people regularly, or chatted to other inmates of the youth hostels etc. This is going to be the longest I have spent on my own ever - and I'm already fed up with it. I know some people like it, but it's just not for me. For all his many faults, Mr A does a fantastic job of looking after me, and I miss it. So no real blog tonight, just me feeling sorry for myself.

    Actually, I asked Aginoth today how you were doing and he suggested I come see you for a wee womanly chat (ie a good old bitch!).

    You're not alone, Mrs Aginoth.

    You are not alone - well, yes you are actually, BUT NOT FOR LONG! Rejoice!

    Poor you!

    How about you take advantage of an evening alone to have a pile of girlfriends over for, as CQ puts it, "a good old bitch"?

    You'd have to work around the kids, of course. Is there somewhere you could farm the kids out for a couple of hours? Or have your bitch session after they're in bed?

    Ah, Mary P - you are indeed on my wavelength. I was thinking.....

    I go round, we put the kids to bed, we put on a film or two, eat junk, put the world to rights and then sleep it off :-)

    What are friends for?

    I see that Mr. Aginoth is missing you, too — it's all very sweet.

    "Q" means it, you know. He's a complete and utter softie about these things, bless him. Fully approves of PDAs, too, much to my consternation.

    (PDA = Public Display of Affection)

    Some men are funny like that....

    I've annoyed and surprised several people with a quick PDA.....

    But at least I had fun doing it...........
