My normal slippers have completely fallen apart and I have a gorgeous pair of reindeer slippers waiting in the wardrobe.

Too early? grin

I put ds in some christmas pjs last night, he was bought them last year and was to small for them, and they way he is growing may be too big by this Christmas!

Wear them!

Weeeeeeeellll, yes it is a bit early really.
But you know you want to really, so we won't grass you up grin

BTW are you sure you didn't 'accidently' destroy the old slippers so that you can use the new ones? Hmmmm?

I say embrace it grin

Ok, 3 nods, I'll go for it tomorrow!!

LotF - my non-Christmas slippers have gone from being absolutely fine to being filled with holes, it's very strange but not totally disappointing grin.

I only put the reindeer pair away because my sister kept nagging me that they weren't appropriate footwear for March!

Wear them , they are only slippers, ive got my reindeer pj's on atm smile

But mrsm, I'll have to wear slippers with holes in otherwise or have to go and buy another pair of non-Christmas ones...and I am in the middle of a major clearout... and i might be given a new pair for Christmas...and any more excuses I can think of...

Worldgonemad - ooh, I wonder if I could have pjs to match my slippers!

Well, that's it. It's 4 yes votes against 1 no so the christmas slippers will be on my feet tomorrow morning grin.

worldgonemad72 Sun 16-Oct-11 22:59:04

Count me on the against list! I'm as crackers about Christmas as the next person but it really is too early. By the time Christmas arrives, the novelty will have worn off and they'll feel just like normal slippers. And you'll need new ordinary ones after Christmas anyway (in March!) so you may as well just get them now.

ach well, each to their own.

(says the women whos just bought 3 advent calendars for the kids, 2 fresh coffee packs for xmas hols and tons of can of diet coke for new year.)

I wear my Santa night shirt all year. I try to put it down the pile, but sometimes it is what's clean.

I've got some reindeer slippers (they're called Merry Moose, actually), but they have a red nose for Christmas that flips over to a brown one when the festivities are over. I've worn them all this year and don't feel out of place. And I never start Christmas stuff before 1st December.

Clandy Wed 19-Oct-11 21:29:32

Wow bublin where can I get some..! grin jealous!!
