For the first time in years I am home alone this weekend. The rest of the family are away, doing and seeing. I deliberately haven't booked anything, I haven't arranged a thing, the weekend stretches out ahead of me in a lovely expanse of unfilled time. I can go see a film, read a book, meet friends or stay home and wallow in the silence. I'm not sure yet what I'll do, but I'll appreciate every minute of it until the dirty washing and noise comes home on Sunday evening. Enjoy your weekend whatever you are doing.
