#SoCS – The Hand-Me-Down


It’s a blue robe.

A hand-me-down from a friend of my mother’s–a friend my mother no longer remembers.

They weren’t friends for long. Perhaps a few years.

The robe was too big for the friend, and my mother didn’t want it.

So here it is.

It’s a fluffy robe. Comfortable and warm on cold winter mornings when I get up in the dark of five o’clock to feed Alex. My fluffy slippers are pink. In them, with the robe, I’m sure I must look like a tired, less-than-sweet ball of candy floss.

It’s all pastel, this outfit.

Or would that be an infit, considering I’d never be caught dead outside in it?

And infit.


So, it’s 3:14am and I’m still up and I shouldn’t be. I should be shrugging on my blue hand-me-down candy-floss robe and crawling off to beddiebyes.

  1. Lol! I can relate to being up late! I hope you slept eventually!


  2. I have a friend who doesn’t go in a bathrobe to the letterbox, because she thinks it is not decent ! and she has no neighbors, maybe a cat watches her ??


  3. Som hand-me-downs are perfect for just the right thing.


  4. We all need a vastly unfit hand me down.💜


  5. Sometimes, a robe is just the perfect thing.


  6. I used to have a ribe like that, wide wale peach. Long gone as I wear nothing long and glowing anymore. Enjoy it. I also awake all night, hate it.


  7. Just love the sound of that blue dressing gown (robe). Sleep? It will come eventually!

    Must have been the night for sleeplessness. I was up between 4 and 7… Tossing and turning, thinking about school!
