Pyjamas are only jeans with patterns on

Bananas in Pyjamas

At the risk of boring my reader, I just wanted to say that I am on a 'pyjama theme' today - again.
There's two reasons for this 
1 I am wearing mine
2 I have been updating this blog (and attempting to change and update my website Write-Place to it's new domain Write Place
Now as my blogger/writer friends know, the process of unjumbling thoughts from your brain and transferring them to the keyboard in a format that others will understand, is not an easy task. It's difficult enough doing it in a way that you understand yourself. Hardly without you realising you are searching other websites, looking at today's TV listings, looking at what's trending on Twitter and checking Facebook to see if anyone's bothered to respond to your inane comments. I usually find myself 'phoning a friend' too.


It's a bit like looking at photographs. You intend to just look at one or a few, but suddenly you are researching not only your own family history but that of your brother's friend's uncle's grandparents who emigrated to Uzbekhistan with Sir Francis Drake (I'm not implying that Francis Drake went to Uzbekhistan, but I think you get the general idea).
 I have been looking at old posts and have gone off at a tangent and back again to something that I have blogged about before - pyjamas. I don't know if I have a phobia - positive one if there's such a thing -about pyjamas or if it's psychosomatic.  
I love pyjamas and am looking forward to wearing a new pair tonight. 


So here I am, in my pyjamas - though I have been showered - eating bananas, drinking coffee and half watching  some shopping channel on telly. Who knows what I may have purchased by the end of the day, and what a pleasant way to spend a Saturday, don't you think ?

Now as my blogger/writer friends know, sometimes putting thoughts from your brain to the keyboard is not an easy task.  In the process of unjumbling them and putting them into a format that others can understand there's a lot of pondering, querying, looking at other websites and so on. It is all too easy to get sidetracked onto looking at today's TV listings, the trends on Twitter and  checking Facebook every few minutes in case someone has responded to your inane comments. With me there's usually a bit of 'phoning a friend' too. 

It's a bit like looking at old photos. You originally intend to search out just one or a few, but before you know it you are not only researching your own family history but also that of your daughter's friend's uncle's great grandparents who emigrated to Uzbekhistan with Francis Drake.
This for once, is not an 'age thing', it pretty much stretches across everyone I reckon.

Anyway, updating the blog and website has involved me looking back at old posts and going off at a tangent, before coming full circle to what I have blogged about before - pyjamas. 
Maybe this is some sort of phobia I have, or maybe it's psychosomatic (I'm looking forward already to wearing new ones tonight ... )
But in the meantime, here I am still in my pyjamas (though I have been showered ! ) eating bananas and drinking coffee. A pleasant way to pass the day, is it not ?
