Home alone
"I'm all alone - all by myself - there is no one here beside me, I'm all alone - quite, all alone - no one to comfort me or guide me" sung a la Donkey from Shrek.

It was strange last night to get home to an empty house. I managed to tidy the kitchen a little... and I made myself a new rule. As it will only be me in the house for the next two weeks there should only ever be one plate in the sink/draining tray.

I worked late last night - not having to worry about what time I got home. I ended up here until 8, getting home just gone 9. I'm still as stiff as a board, and feel like I've been ridden hard and hung up wet (which is not nearly as enjoyable as it might first sound!)

I was tempted to get a take away on the way home but resisted. I can cook and look after myself... and somehow I find myself needing to prove that. Last night I took the easy way out - chicken nuggets and potato crochets. Tonight I shall try and be a little more adventurous.

The cats have been acting strange of late. Sunday night I was shattered and forgot to shut them out of the bedroom. About 2:30 in the morning - just as it was getting light I was woken up by Scarlet biting my chin, then my nose, and finally trying to lick my eye. Meanwhile Max had found his way under the covers and was clawing his way up my leg. They got kicked out fast enough but it really destroyed any benefits from a good nights sleep I was hoping to get.

Last night I remembered to shut them out so I did manage to get something like a good night. They woke me about 6:30 this morning by clawing at the door and generally tearing the place up. The front room looked like a bomb site when I got down this morning.

Current Mood: sore sore still
Current Music: Counting Crows - Miller's Angels

That would be coolness... I'm not sure what I will be eating tonight - I didn't take anything out of the freezer so it'll have to be cooked from frozen.
