It is cold. Freeze-your-nipples-off, frostbitten-fingers-from-texting-outside, weeing-ice cold. I do not like it. I especially do not like it at night. I wear bed socks all year round. That heatwave we had this year? Bed socks. Travelling through Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore? Bed socks. I like layers. All the layers. And I love pyjamas. Not those bottoms and a vest top “sets”, which are pyjamas-lite, the low cal version of nightwear, no, I like to be covered. Insulated. Cosy. Full coverage is safe to answer the door in without flashing the postman. I like cotton pyjamas – softer, avoids night sweats. I don’t like masses of zips, fasteners or buckles – they dig into you and keep you awake at night. I like pockets – to keep your phone in when you’re carrying a stack of books and a glass of water upstairs. I like these pyjamas from Toast. Comfortable, warm, nice retro pattern, pretty collar and cuff detail, pockets. They are a little on the pricey side at £69, but I think they’re worth it. They’d make a great gift from Santa.
