I'm currently on Easter holiday (Teacher) and so far have done nothing but run around after my DCs and the builders. Today, DD has gone out with her friends, DS is on work experience and H is at work. I'm eating hob nobs, drinking coffee and watching Loose Women in my dressing gown.

Is this unreasonable? I feel like I should be doing something!

I too am in my dressing gown. Marvellous world.

No no no! Just enjoy! Don't feel guilty and don't feel bad.

Yabu for watching loose women though! ;-)

Today I am.

DD woke us at around 3.30am, sitting up crying, "Mummy!Daddy!". Nothing wrong with her, just awake and bored. Tried cajoling, soothing, distracting etc. but nothing worked.
Got up with her at around 4.30, and got back to bed at around 5.15. Woke at 7 with a horrible headache, nausea etc. Thankfully DH was on a late start today so he got her up, and ready for nursery and dropped her off.
I went back to bed. Only got up an hour ago. So now I'm catching up.

And I have so much I need to do. sad

I got dressed for Loose women. I have been working though and I am working a night shift tonight. No child care for the DC, so I try and doze while they run riot watch TV and behave like angels.

Excellent stuff. Thank you for the validation ladies. I'm contemplating a shower but wondering whether that'll be too much effort?! :D

I got dressed at 10.30 ish as I was engrossed in the Yoni thread, I felt guilty but it was too good to leave.

KareninsGirl Thu 11-Apr-13 13:26:41

Sorry for those unwell/finishing shifts/kept awake by DCs.

Um...yoni thread?!

Pigsmummy Thu 11-Apr-13 13:30:25

I feel smug as today I was dressed by about 10am when normally I am watching a bit of loose women or dinner date still in my dressing gown.

Enjoy it while you can!!!'

It is 1.32pm and I am still in my dressing gown... blush


Tbf I am spending the morning running after a toddler and a pre-schooler.

And I have done the dishes and hung a load of washing out.

But mainly Mumsnetting and procrastinating.

YoniOneSugar Thu 11-Apr-13 13:37:41

Yoni thread is now in Classics, have a read. grin with coffee and cake.

KareninsGirl Thu 11-Apr-13 13:50:04

Still in fleecy pjs here.

Terrible tummy bug and very little sleep.

Trying to stay awake so I sleep better tonight?

teacherandguideleader Thu 11-Apr-13 13:53:59

I was in my gorilla onesie (so glad I live miles out of catchment) until half an hour ago. This afternoon I have a tough decision to make - gold bunny or creme egg.

PandaNot Thu 11-Apr-13 13:54:31

YANBU but I did feel slightly awkward answering the door to the postman yesterday at 1130am, wearing my pjs. I could feel him judging.

moominmarvellous Thu 11-Apr-13 13:56:49

Me & DCs all still in Pyjamas. I've been MNing all morning while they play upstairs! The guilt comes and goes. It's gone at the moment :D

crashdoll Thu 11-Apr-13 14:51:12

I'm still in my PJs at 2.50 and life is goooood. May even take a nap and have a bubble bath.

Dahlen Thu 11-Apr-13 15:24:00

Enjoy it! grin

I have not had a dressing-gown day since I got a dog as she needs walking. The only time I am not dressed after breakfast is if I am really, really ill.

That said, I had a few days off work last week and found that lazing around was lovely but actually made me feel more tired. As soon as I resumed normal sleep and activity, I felt livelier and happier. My body clearly prefers being on the go. confused

But if I enjoyed lazing around in my dressing gown and I had the opportunity to do it, I'd revel in it and sod anyone who passed judgement on me! Go for it!

OTOH YABU for watching the drivel that is Loose Women. wink

Yup, in dressing gown until 2pm - DS in same watching TV. Both jumped up like scalded cats when we heard a car in the drive. The cleaner arriving. Now THAT'S bad.
