Sometimes chatting online or via text or even on the phone isn’t enough. Sometimes friends just have to get together. So the other weekend I went to Southampton for tea. Yes that’s a 500 miles round trip, and yes that makes me just a little bit mad.
Actually I only (only!) drove as far as Grays in Essex, and my friend drove the rest of the way. See I’m not quite as crazy as you thought(!).
Anyway, following that visit I’ve been meaning to ask you a question.
How many dressing gowns do you own?
We discussed this at great length over the dinner table. I can’t even remember how the topic started. Some had just one. Some had two. Others had three (greedy!). Some seemed quite strict over which dressing gown they wear for what occasion – if slobbing about the house can be considered an “occasion”. Some confessed to being fussy over the material. Some preferred hoods. Others had oversized mens towelling gowns from Marks and Spencer. Some wear them over cosy pyjamas. Others said they wear them over nothing (oo-er missus).
I do wonder what the people at the next table thought.
So go on then. How many do you own? What materials are they? How often do you wash yours? Go on… humour me and comment below!
Oh and I should answer myself too. I have two. One white soft fleecy robe that I wear all the time, and one old blue towelling robe that LincsGeek didn’t want anymore so I claimed it for myself.
(Whether you air dry or towel dry after a shower and whether you have towels you only use on your hair are perhaps questions for another day!)
