cosy fan tutte

Ingredients for a perfect cosy evening after tramping about in the rain.

1. One pair of white flannel pyjamas with blue piping adorned with pictures of monkeys dancing on clouds. As Patsington said, it's like I commisioned them or something.

2. One pair of Liberty print slippers.

3. One large red dressing gown.

4. Several cups of tea.

5. Lots of Lemon Melt biscuits (the platonic ideal of biscuits).

6. One Jeeves and Wooster DVD box set.

7. One comfy little armchair that looks like it belongs in the set of the above.

8. Knowing that you're going to have a bath filled with Origins Cocoa Therapy bubbles before tumbling into bed.

What are your ingredients for a similarly soothing evening?

A pile of Lessing's tragedies, and a lecture to write in German! Oh, wait...

Not evil flying GM monkeys by any chance?

My ingredients for a soothing evening are a long shower, comfortable night clothes, a mug of tea and some biccies, and a good book.

1. Mauve checked flannel pyjama bottoms
2. Old very soft t-shirt
3. Purple cashmere cardigan that's not actually terribly attractive but very warm and comfy
4. Green & Black's hot chocolate (possibly with a slug of brandy in it)
5. Something unchallenging on telly featuring POLICEMEN and MURDER (I am my mother's daughter)
6. Someone who doesn't mind me sticking my feet under them on the sofa to keep them nice and toasty.

And waaaah, I want a bath! One that works, like. I miss having nice baths before going to bed.

All I can think of is one glitzfrau. I am very besotted.

* The clouds-and-stars robe my aunt gave me. (There is a sad, but soothing, story associated with this -- I live in New York City, and I was at home on the morning of September 11 2001. So when I first learned of the WTC attack, I immediately called all my family members and told them that I was okay, or left them messages if they weren't in. The message I left for my aunt was, "Don't worry, I was safe at home in my threadbare old bathrobe and my bunny slippers." She said she was so relieved to hear that message that she decided to "celebrate" by getting me a better bathrobe.)

* A filling meal that I have cooked myself.

* Van Morrison's Astral Weeks.

* Hot cocoa with a shot of my home-made amaretto.

* Lying on the sofa with my cat Zach nestled in the crook of my lap.
