20 Things To Do When You're Home Alone

Even if you don't live by yourself, hopefully you are afforded a little alone time every now and than. My partner and I are both solitary beings, we can be heard cheering "ME TIME!" when the other is going out, yes we can be a little odd sometimes! Don't be offended if the ones you share a home with enjoying being by themselves, I believe this is really important for everyone to re-calibrate and be with your own thoughts and feelings.
