If I'm home by myself during the day, I love the leave and quiet and being able to hear the birds in the backyard. If I'm home alone at night (which is very rare) I need to have the TV or radio on or I get the creeps!
I always used to like the background sounds during the day,but about 6 months ago,I just stopped switching anything on at all !! I am happy to quietly read or browse on the internet with no background sounds except the birds in all the trees! It is the most delightful type of music with such good cheer!!
I am often caught out by visitors with Bob the Builder or Fireman Sam playing on the tele! I do like to have some background noise when I'm home on my own, but at other times I prefer the silence, for example when I'm writing.
When I am alone I generally like silence, except for the sounds of birds chirping etc. I am lucky to live in a quiet spot. Well., okay the train runs past my house but I am so used to that I don't notice. When I am writing I usually listen to music. .
I not home alone at night, but during the day, if my husband goes out without me, I don’t put the TV on, & as we don’t have a radio, I’ll get on my laptop & reply to emails from friends, or look up a recipe for dinner, as I don’t make the same meal more than once a year!
