No more PJs at Tesco

You can't wear PJ's but plenty of really comfy clothes in the shops right now

It's been about 3 years now since Tesco banned people wearing pajama's from shopping there. I may never have gone into Tesco with PJ's but I have definitely done the London school run in PJ's covered by Gucci tall boots and and a big Max Mara overcoat. I had 2 very little ones then, no domestic help like here in Hong Kong, and there were some winter days I wouldn't get out of those PJ's at all. My kids are 8 and 10 now, and life has become so much easier. I remember ever so often the more established mums would throw us stressed and frazzled newbies a look of utter disdain, which would get us motivated to make an effort for the school gates. Motivational effects aside, why are women so unkind to each other? Mental note: must make a real effort to be kind to other women at all times. Life gets busy and we end up rushing around and maybe not always making enough effort. For 2014 I am going to change that.
