    Very very rare! I used to get a couple of hours once a week last year, until April when i had #2. He's still breastfed, and is mighty clingy still. so home alone time is non existent.

    Not often these days as I work 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. If by any chance I leave DD in daycare a bit longer after I finish its only to get something done - shopping, mopping, errands. DP normally works a couple of nights a week so I get my alone time after DD is asleep but I'm usually too tired to enjoy it! When I was only working 10-12 hours a week I'd often get at least a morning or two at home. I miss it so much, it's a bit overwhelming being on the go all the time. I'm hoping to drop to 4 days a week by the time DD is in kindy next year, although my home day will probably be a non kindy day lol...maybe I'll get some alone time the year after that?! 😆

    When DH takes DD out somewhere, or when I'm in the toilet, shower, or bath, or having a nap.

    Before DD got sick she went to FOB's every second weekend, so I got 48 hours a fortnight to myself. I generally spent that with DP but if he worked on those days I was home alone (or I went out or whatever). That'll resume once her treatment has finished but for now I get no time alone. Although DD is well right now and I'm teeing up a two night sleep over for her at FOB's, from tomorrow until Monday morning, FOB will meet me at hospital for her treatment. It has been months since I was kid free for two whole nights (DP's boys will be here but not my kids), I can't wait!
