Top 5 stupid things we do when we're home alone

Anyone who grew up with the Home Alone films knows the joys that can come from having an empty house to yourself. We've all done some pretty stupid things when no one's watching, but here are our favourite silly activities for when we're safe behind closed doors.

Pig out and watch movies

We might not be able to nab a fancy Plaza hotel suite, but scenes of Kevin talking along to an old movie and munching on junk food just have to be recreated! While this can also be a group activity, it's so much better when there’s no one to judge you for grabbing that fifth donut.

Dance around Risky Business-style

Karaoke might fill us with fear but give us an empty house and we'll happily go to town on the tunes. While the shades and white shirt are optional, we'll definitely be sliding along wooden floors and singing into a hairbrush.

Do your chores with nothing on

Be honest, we've all tried this at some point. Whether it’s laundry or the vacuuming, chores are just more enjoyable when you don't have to bother with clothes. Embrace the lack of prying eyes and ditch the stitches, sticking with must-have Ugg boots for ultimate comfort. Just be careful when you’re cooking dinner!

The Bridget Jones montage

It’s raining cats and dogs outside, you’re feeling a little sad and lonely, so what do you do? Make like the ultimate single lady by pouring yourself a glass of wine, donning your best ugly cry face and belting out 'All By Myself' at the top of your lungs. This one’s particularly effective on Valentine's Day.

Sled down the stairs

When it snows in Britain there’s barely a minute to grab your sledge before everything is grey and mushy. Fortunately with a bit of prep you can sled down the stairs all year round! Put on some padded gear, place your duvet or several big cushions all the way down the steps, and get sliding. You might be a little red faced if you get caught in the act, but the rush is totally worth it.

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.

Don't feel pressured in to spending at Christmas and a giveaway

According to a recent survey by  Whyte & Mackay    46.2% of people confess to feeling pressured into spending £100-£200 more than they can afford.    I have to admit that this really shocked me, but them with the rising cost of things and also the unrealistic expectations of people it is often very hard to keep a lid on spending. Other irritations were: ·          Christmas dinner preparations (25%) . The most common complaint is when mum-in-laws unfavourably compare the way dinner is served to the ‘proper way’ (i.e. her way). ·          Cruel present choices (24%). The majority felt that parent-in-laws purposefully bought presents for them that they wouldn’t like, from terrible Christmas jumpers to regifting items already in their cupboards. ·          Fighting over board games (15%). The most frenetic choice is the team game of charades with 34% of those who have fought with their parent-in-laws coming to blows. Monopoly is the board game that seems to cause the least amoun
