I like lounging about. Who doesn’t?
But – I hate wearing pyjamas. I always seem to end up with the legs all ridden up in bed, tangled up in the top, too hot and bothered to be comfy.
This leaves me with a dilemma.
When I get up in the morning I have to get dressed straight away, since I cannot lounge about in the – ahem – altogether.
But sometimes, at weekends, I don’t want to get dressed straight away. I want to lounge about a bit first.
Cue my latest eBay purchase!
For the princely sum of 99p (plus postage) I am now the proud owner of this vintage robe.
I like the term robe. It is a word made for leisure. It lounges on the tongue.
Or you could call it a housecoat, if you are that way inclined.
I intend to put it through its paces at the first available opportunity.
I just hope I don’t look like Olive from On The Buses in it. It is a bit of a worry.
However, I am comforted that I can always cut it up and make it into bunting, should my fears prove true.
