I don't generally in the day and I am home alone majority of the time.

However somehow at night, I need the television running in the background, even if I am cooking.

I get plenty of quiet time so at night I do not need or want it.

I also go to sleep watching the tv or perhaps listening to it -it generally sends me to sleep!

I have the radio on most of the time in the background when home most of the time but I do like a bit of 'quiet' also, if I am reading, relaxing, contemplating....

Depends on my mood. I normally like the TV on if I am working in the kitchen so that I can clear my recorded programs list. But sometimes, I like the quiet as well.
For me it's a 50/50 split with silence and music playing. If I am watching TV, I like watching something that catches my attention, instead of it being background noise.
Usually I am studying so I have quiet. When I am cleaning the house, I have the music on and I am a movin' and a groovin'!
I like quiet do not even listen to radio threw out my clock radio some time ago now use a clock for when I need to know the time
like to watch tv at night

If I am ever in the house by myself then I do like to have some kind of background noise - but not in the morning.

is something that has alluded me my whole life.
When my son go's away for camps he runs for kids, 5 days of no noise is bliss.
Peace and quite is wonderful for our well being.

There have been times I have had the t.v. on for a little company, but that is very rare.
Oh! jonaj.......'quiet', 'eluded', 'goes'...... spell-check doesn't work well for us Aussies', methinks! Lol!

Oh thanks for that! I will just go put my very red face somewhere.....

Depends on my mood. I often prefer music to the TV though.

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 can't stand the quiet. Unless I'm doing some really intense paper work. When I'm home there has to be music playing. Too much quiet certainly puts me to sleep.
Silence. Well there's no silence in suburbia. Cars, doors, people walking past etc. I like birdsong and rain, but I could live with out the dogs barking..
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.
I enjoy having the television on whilst knitting.
I love silence so I can focus on my writing, art, work or whatever else I'm doing.
I am rarely alone but I do love quiet until I start feeling sleepy.

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. .
Depends on the day! Typically I prefer music in the background, but on days when my kids have been especially rambunctious, I may need the silence when I have the house to myself.
I prefer the quiet. perhaps because I am hearing impaired a constant noise in the backround becomes irritating after a while.
I do enjoy tv, music, but when I am ready to watch or listen
Most of the time prefer quiet.
Enjoy watching taped tv shows.
Sometimes put a CD on.

Really depends on my 'mood' & what I've got to get done in the day.
I need the radio playling or the tv to be on. I rarely like the quiet.
During the day I like peace & quiet & the gentle sounds of my water feature, of an evening I like the tv going in the background.

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!
Libraries. Such peaceful places. I could live in a library. *daydreams . . .*

Prefer Quiet and read a book.
