DP took the kids out for a couple of hours once so that I could sort out a stack of old clothes etc. and rearrange the kids room without it being messed up. That was about 6 months ago :P
My partner works from home. We have a 3 year old who goes to daycare 1 day a week and an 8 month old.

Do you get time at home alone?
It was my Mother's Day gift last year- to be alone- DH took dd1 (dd2 was still a belly bub) out for the day at his mother's.
Whilst I looked forward to be alone in so long, in all honesty it felt weird, I was so lost and it made me realise that even though I moan about it I wouldn't have it any other way!

No and to be honest I don't miss it. I'd probably just clean the house or do washing anyway. I work and go the to gym every morning at 5am. I get plenty of me time.
I hate our house at the moment but we're building and moving mid year. I'm sure once we move I'll feel differently.

No rarely. My DS is usually with me unless my DH takes him out. Both my DD's will be at school though so just my DS now. I don't particularly want him to be away from me and I don't see it happening although he has got a place at pre school but it will only be a couple of hours until he's settled in. Being non verbal and having special needs it might take a while.

No never. DS3 starts kindy next week which means when DS4 takes a nap I will have some alone time.
If I ever did get a day, I'm sure I would do a full house clean anyway lol. Even that would be lovely, to clean the house top to bottom with no interruptions... Now that would be amazing 😉

My kids are older now and my youngest is in year 2, so I get a fair whack of alone time.
I do work part time and volunteer at the school.
