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
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
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
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

The Bridget Jones montage
raining cats and dogs outside, you’re feeling a little sad and lonely, so what

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
Sled down the stairs
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.
