At the moment, maybe once every 3 months (two jobs and way too many family gatherings!)

Once this baby's born? I'm thinking it will be more like 'how often do you actually wear clothing that isn't meant for sleeping?'

I can't. I tried, but they just don't work for me...

Mainly Mondays. I need an extra day to recover from the weekend with DH and the kids.

Not often at the moment - fulltime work + busy weekends.

Some days I come home and put my pjs on though... at 3pm biggrin.gif

Any day I don't absolutely have to leave the house.

If I'm at home, I'm in my pjs.

I don't have pj days because nobody really wants to see me trundling around in nothing but a longish t-shirt.

Everyday is comfy clothes lazy day though.  original.gif

Very rarely. On the days that I don't get dressed in time I usually end up with people popping in or random door knockers, some weekends I will attempt to get into PJ's in the early arvo and one of DH's mates will rock up. I used to be able to have  PJ day when I didn't have kids or they were both out of the house at school so I could avoid answering the door and keep the curtains closed etc. but now if someone knocks the kids jump up and down that there's someone at the door and give me no opportunity to pretend I'm not home LOL

Hardly ever, I wish I was having one today.  I was up playing Lego from 5 before I came to work....

When I was unemployed my whole life was a pyjama day.

Now I work mostly 6 days a week (short shifts though) so I never get pyjama days, on my days off I want to go and do stuff not sit around at home!

I have accidental pj days sometimes. LOL

I am up early rushing around to get kids off to school etc then when I think about getting dressed myself I start doing something else,  like, oh I had better put the washing on the line, I will just put a load in the dishwasher, before I get dressed, I will start that cake now etc etc and before I know it sometimes it is midday and I am still in my pj's.  I do get dressed at some stage in the day though and have never been in my pjs by the end of the day.....yet!

I don't get dressed on weekdays until 1030 at earliest but often it's about 2pm. I only get dressed then because I know my mother will be dropping the kids off once school finishes and I dont want her to see I never got dressed. I am them back in pjs after showering by about 5pm if I can.
It's a terrible habit I've got myself in.
So I don't have many pj days where I don't get dressed at all, I'm dressed for a few hours in the afternoon, but with school holidays next week we might all have a few of those!

I love my PJ's.  Pre-kids (actually pre-marriage) I had Peter Alexander ones that I never wore to bed, just around the house.  I would come home from work and change into them.  A friend of my parents knocked on my door once as he had found out that we now lived in the same town and apologised for bothering me when I was sick, I said I'm not and then realised he thought I was because I had PJ's on at 5 in the afternoon!

Then when I moved to DH's farm could never be sure MIL wouldn't drop by so the PJ day was phased out.

Now with a 2yo and 8mo I get dressed by about 10 most days but if DH takes DD with him I sometimes get dressed right before they come back for lunch!  Only in comfy trackies and jumper though.

Never. If I don't get out of the house, even if it's to have a coffee next to the pram I go all redrum.

Never. I love the feeling of a shower and fresh clothes in the morning.

Posted 05 April 2012 - 10:06 AM

Around once a week. I am dressed because I had to drop kids off at school but I am about to change back into PJ's (I am sick).

#20 FeralSingleMum

Posted 05 April 2012 - 10:07 AM

Sometimes.

Usually because I find myself getting caught up doing things around the the house and only realize when I look at the clock it's lunch time.

The only time I stay in my PJs all day is when I'm sick or if I'm in hospital.

Posted 05 April 2012 - 10:10 AM

since I don't own pyjamas I can safely say never.  xmas_tongue.gif
sleep ins are almost non-existent and as soon as you wake up it's go go go
so the chances are quite remote and I'm not really good at doing 'nothing' iykwim.

This.  I would never not have a shower at the start of the day, could think of nothing worse than slothing around in pajamas all day.

Usually. I haul myself out of bed to attend to DS, then the nanny comes and I rush into my home office to do some work. The first couple of hours is productive. Then when I'm getting twitchy and in need fo a break, I shower and dress - usually around 11 or noon.

I love my new corporate wardrobe. I had to wear a suit to a funeral last week, and I realised how much I love my new slouchy lifestyle. I've got more $$ to spend on clothes than I had in my last managerial job when I was PG and saving up for mat leave, and I'm going to invest it in good slippers, I think.

Not often enough, I love a pajama day. Probably only a couple of times a year, if that.

#25 Feral timtam

Posted 05 April 2012 - 10:27 AM

I don't.
I'f I'm still in pj's come 9 in the morning I am sick enough to be in hospital. Actually, even on the rare occasions I have been hospitalised I've been out of pj's by 9 at the absolute latest!

On the flip side, my favourite nightie is nice enough that a friend purchased one, removed the bow from the front and has worn it as an evening dress on several occasions!
