So, this year in the Easter holidays, my family have decided to go on holiday. As this is the last year of sixth form and I need A*AA to get into Cambridge, I decided to give this one a miss and revise instead (not missing out really, they're only going to Devon). However, I'm a bit worried about staying home completely alone and having to cook and look after the cats. Obviously I'll be able to look after the place i.e. not burn it down or starve but I was just wondering if you guys got any tips about what I could do to make life easier/less lonely? Also things to remember or avoid doing.
Thanks!

Obviously there will be a party. I was thinking for the other 6 days of the week, I could ask some friends to sleep over... or will this just make things harder?

I worry how you'll cope in the future if you're making a big fuss about being on your own for such a short time now. Peronsally I enjoy having the house to myself as you get to do whatever you want, when you want!

Normally when I've had to stay by myself my mum has left me simple oven/microwave meals and some money for the basic things like milk and bread. In terms of revision do you think it's a good idea to have friends sleep over? Surely they would be a distraction...

Just had to point out that this isn't a 'big fuss' as you so nicely put it. I am just gathering a bit of 'know-how' from people who may have done it before... Sorry if I led you to believe otherwise.

There aren't many tips to give you. You wake up, feed the pets, feed yourself, study, do whatever, eat lunch and dinner, feed pets again and sleep. I'm home alone 80% of the time and that's how it goes. I'm sure you won't struggle. Don't over think it, it's just being alone a few hours longer than usual.

Relax!

It's not scary! I do find when I'm totally alone every noise makes me super aware though! Especially at night!

If you have a party don't have it the night before your parents come back. Lock away any valuables incase someone gets drunk and breaks something... Also resign yourself to the fact you will be mopping up vomit the next morning!

Umm it's kinda common sense really.. Don't forget your keys... Locksmiths are expensive..

Thanks so much I'll take that on board. I know about the noise thing but I'm sure I'd get used to it after a day or two.
