And so, to bed.


Just like my Dad, when I arrive home from some time away from the house, the first thing I do is slip on my slippers. I love it. I'm a real lounge wear fan. So, I like to do the same for Jack. After playschool, for instance, I take off his shoes and put him in his little slippers. Then, a few weeks ago, this lucky little one was kindly sent a pair of the most gorgeous Cashmere slippers from french brand, Collegien. Oh my word, these just aren't any slippers. They're a wool cashmere blend, with a soft breathable, non-slip sole. He has pretty much had them on non-stop since we got them. They have the most fab range of colours and designs too - and you can get them in adult sizes! You should definitely check out the brand if you fancy a pair of luxury slippers. Jack's Paper Moon readers get a 5 Euro discount. Quote COLJPPM14 at the checkout to redeem.

So, I get the loungewear thing from my Dad, but have inherited my Mum's affinity for old threadbare teddies. I came across this fellow in a junk shop last summer. He's kind of falling apart. His hay stuffing is visible, his button eyes are just about hanging in there, and his fur isn't really fur anymore. You would think a 27 year old woman could walk away, but I fell in love with him and even after bartering as hard as I could, he didn't come cheap. Still, I think he's a beauty. He lives in my bedroom, beside the rag-doll my Mum made me when I was wee. I like to think his existence is much happier now. Listen to me. I'm not even the sentimental type.


Jack is off to bed now, wearing a pair of Cath Kidston footballer pajamas. I can already guess which chapter of Jolly Stories he'll choose. 'Little Brown Bear' no doubt. It's his favorite. Who needs to buy books when you can borrow them from Grannies library? She has millions! Plus, it's a trip down memory lane for me.Thanks so much to Collegien for the slippers! Goodnight all.


 Sleep tight, my darling.
