The boys are at my Dad and Stepmum’s for two days.
So what do you do when you’re home alone?
Go to bed really really late.
Go and catch up with some girlfriends and not have to tend to anyone.
Schlepp to another part of town to check out a fabric store and take as.much.time.as.you.like.
Come home, tootle round on the Interweb, pour a glass – or three – of wine, marvel at how an evening can transpire when you are not having to tend to four little people.
Sit on the lounge.
Make a fancy pants dinner and – gasp – eat.late.
(Dinner: pan roasted rib eye on the bone served with a flavoured butter (sundried tomatoes, olives, anchovies, garlic and rosemary), sauteed cavalo nero, roasted fennel with carrots. Dessert: poached rhubarb creme brulee)
