Carrie Underwood turns to cleaning when her husband is away at Hockey games.

The country music star tied the knot with hockey player Mike Fisher last July and although she loves married life with him in Ottawa, Canada, the 27-year-old beauty admitted she often gets bored when her spouse is playing in a different city.

She said: "It is hard being a hockey wife. They will go off for a few days at a time to play some road games, and I am just like sitting at home twiddling my thumbs thinking, 'What do I do?'

"I cleaned, and we are moving into a new house, and so I was unpacking all of his stuff. And laundry and dishes."

Carrie was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Song for her track 'There's A Place For Us', eventually losing out to Diane Warren with 'You Haven't Seen the Last of Me' at last night's (17.01.11) ceremony and even though Mike couldn't make it to Los Angeles with her, she revealed he was cheering her on from home.

She explained to People magazine: "Even though he's not here with me tonight, I know he's watching. And just to have somebody that I know is 1,000 per cent cheering me on, it's really nice to have that kind of support."
