Yesterday I did something I haven’t done in a long time, I stayed in my pjs all day and only left my house to water my path tomatoes.
I wasn’t really planning on it but somehow it happened. Instead of getting dressed before I ventured downstairs in the morning, my desire for tea and toast was too big, so I ended up sipping my tea still all cuddly in my pjs.
Then there were emails to answer, things to research and write and before I knew it, it was 3pm and I was still in my nightly outfit. And since I still had a long list to attend to I decided I might as well just stay comfy.
So I sat all afternoon, well into the evening in my soft pajamas, typing and working, enjoying the wooly socks on my feat and hot cups of tea. And even though the weather wasn’t bad outside I enjoyed staying unseen and getting things done.
But today things are back to normal, I am washed, dressed and my hair is tamed and I am ready to tackle what lies ahead. I have a few errands to run, a friend to meet and a film preview to go to, so the outside world has me back and my pjs have the day off.
But it’s nice to know that they are ready and waiting for me to step back into tonight, the perfect comfort clothes for sleepy relaxation and the occasional working day spent unseen at home.
One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I’ll never know.
