No. And it drives me up the freaking wall. Dh was meant to go to work yesterday and today. Yesterday he worked from home in the morning then asked if I could drop him off at work but by the time he got his @rse into gear, I would have had 15 minutes at home before having to pick dd up from school. Then today he woke up with a sore ankle from an old injury and decided to work from home. Tomorrow I start back at work and the alone time that I have had in 15 days is precisely zero.

Yes I do, and I love it. I spend half the time just bumming around, and the other half doing housework uninterrupted. I get one night and half a day, every second fortnight, plus 1-2 days a week during school hours.

ETA- DD has just started having sleepovers at my mum's house every second Friday with her cousin who is also 3, but that still doesn't mean I'm home alone. Come to think of it, the only time I've been alone is when DH has taken both kids to the shops with him and that lasts all of maybe 30 minutes...
He works 6 days a week and his only day off, Sundays, are usually spent chilling together. Don't think he's ever really taken the kids for a day out on his own, we pretty much do everything together.
I don't even know what I'd do with a day to myself. Never really thought about it! Oh, the possibilities... Sleep....TV....colouring... 😃

Yep, 3-4 days a week when DS is at school and I'm not working. Plus DH and DS sometimes go out together without me.

No because ds2 is always with me (he is only 11 weeks old). On Thursdays its just us two though as dh is at work, ds1 at school and dd at daycare. I like Thursdays 👌

yes - and I love it.
I am a far better person (happier and much nicer to be around ) now that I get some regular alone time.

Whilst I don't really fancy being home alone, I do get to be home alone sometimes as my husband will take the kids to the park or beach or wherever.
I do get a lot of alone time, just not always in the house.

I love being home - this year will be my year of the garden (should my health hold)
I guess it's different being on a farm maybe? And because I was away so much for long periods of time?
I don't know! I haven't been well and alone for a long time!
I don't really like venturing out unless I have to but I'm a real homebody.

I do, DP is pretty good at taking DS with him on trips to Bunnings or out for a bike ride.
I work from home too and DS is in childcare a couple of days so that I can actually get my work done without losing my tiny mind.
Love my home alone time, although I do often end up mopping all our floors because it's just so much easier to do with everyone out of the way.
