I’m a loner, Dottie, a rebel

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.
