As you know, my OH is six foot eight and a big 'un and so am I but about a foot shorter

Well, I bought him a nightshirt for Christmas and, because I liked it, I bought myself one as well. They came with matching nightcaps and, because he has no shame, he wears his as well.

Together we look like we are part of the European Honey Monster breeding programme.

I do have one of those enamel candle sticks but I wouldn't trust him with a lighted candle.

Sharron, you do make me laugh! Such images in my mind lol

Do you wear bedsocks? I do and have to wear pjs or my legs would be cold. I buy men's pjs from Aldi or Lidl as they are higher necked tops than women's styles.

I hope your o.h. doesn't find his nightshirt draughty or was it extra long!

Just occurred to me.
Where does OH's nighshirt come to - and do you trip over yours, Sharron? :-D :-D


Sharron Report 16 Jan 2020 23:32

Mine comes down quite a lot further than his but he has a warn bum (not a baby doll or anything) and I don't trip over mine.

Hope it's not windy in your neck of the woods :-D

Neck is not the problem.
