Father is in Devon. DH is in St Albans. Bear is currently playing with a large quantity of children but by 8pm will be flat out in bed. Tonight I shall be sitting downstairs all on my own.
A lot of fiction at this point brings in romance, burglaries and supernatural experiences. For me tonight involves chocolate, possibly a small amount of alcohol (as the responsible adult) and the freedom to watch whatever I feel like on tv.
And I get to have great cuddles with DH when he gets back - things could be a lot worse.
