Soft pant friendships


My dear friend Mrs Woog got me onto the notion of a soft pant. You know the kind…something comfy, not necessarily attractive, easy to wear, elasticized worn usually between the hours of 6pm to 10pm and in the morning before anyone really has to see you. I’ve always been partial to them, embraced them in fact, and now I know the proper name for them.

Last night (and today) we have had a visit from another dear friend of mine, let’s call him Aunty Chenille. Because that’s what he’s called. It’s been years since we have seen each other – I think it was just before we moved down here that I saw him last. There’s often Facebook banter, the odd text message when doing something inappropriate I would completely approve of, but we haven’t had a proper one on one face time squeeze in waaaaay too long.

Last night we picked up right where we left off, catching up, remembering, making new friends with the girls having a good old catch up with Rob. We ate curry, drank too much wine, laughed and sang. It was just about the best kind of random Tuesday night a girl like me could ask for. Just like a soft pant, comfortable and easy.

Do you have some soft pant friends? They are pretty good aren’t they?



  1. Chenille, Curry & random Tuesday singalongs are the BEST.

  2. Soft Pant Society. Let’s start it.

    I am going to see my best soft pant friends soon and I cannot wait!
    Only I call them inside pants…and sometimes they make it outside…and they are most definitely going to make their way onto the plane so my inside pants will be meeting my inside pant friend in person!

  7. Love old friends. You can pick up where you left off and they take you as you are, soft pants and all. BTW, I spotted a lady grocery shopping in her pjs and dressing gown today. At 11AM!! That may be taking comfort dressing a little far… or not….. Claire

    I’m wearing soft pants now, in truth I’ve been wearing soft pants a lot since the baby arrived which means I’ve really only seen soft pant friends & I’m totally ok with that 🙂

  9. Soft Pant Society – love it! This cold weather is perfect for soft pants. I had an old friend pop over for a visit this week and I was in my baby smeared soft pants and she didn’t care.
