Cosy nightwear to keep us warm

Cosy nightwear to keep us warm

Cosy nightwear to keep us warm this winter. At this time of year I like to snuggle down in the evenings to watch a series on Netflix or Amazon Prime. List of my recent viewings at the bottom of this post.

Details of above:

Grey sparkly cashmere shawl Boden || Animal print nightdresses MarksandSpencer || Silk pyjama set JohnLewis&Company || Luxury towelling robe JohnLewis&Partners || Pompom slippers Boden || Star slipper socks The White Company.

I have chosen a few items above and below that will keep us cosy during the long dark winter evenings. A nice pair of warm socks are essential or a snuggly pair of slippers to keep our feet warm. I always think that pyjamas look more dressy than a night dress for wearing casually in the evening. I often wrap a scarf around my neck for extra warmth.

SAS Rogue Heros BBC iplayer

I watched this series recently having been recommended it by Sandra Howard author of “Love at War”. She came to give a talk at our local library so I have a signed copy. The novel is set in Cairo during the Second World War.

Set in Cairo in 1941 during the Second World War. How the SAS was formed as a regiment. Interesting characters. Some violence and plenty of scenes depicting the nightlife in Cairo during that era.


From Scratch
Taken from a book by the same name and based on a true story, this series depicts an emotional journey between two people and their families, beautifully set against a backdrop of Florence and Sicily. Highly recommended

Firefly Lane
This series, covering 2 seasons, is based on the novel of the same name and navigates the lives of two teenage girls in the 1970s all the way through to their adulthoods in the 2000s. I am currently watching this. Took some time to get into but now enjoying it.

The Good Nurse
This film relates the true events of a nurse, extremely well portrayed by Eddie Redmayne, working in an American hospital. This slow-burning thriller is very watchable, despite the fact that it tells the story of a serial killer. Recommended by a friend. Have not watched this.


Ten Percent
A series based on the French version entitled  ‘Call my Agent’ is a comical take on life inside a talent agency and the lives of the people in the spotlight and behind it.

Modern Love
Covering 2 series, this is a collection of unique stories exploring life and love and their joys, trials and tribulations, each inspired by the New York Times column entitled Modern Love.


The Morning Show
A two-series drama with a third coming soon, this stars Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell and takes a candid look at the modern workplace through the lens of the people waking up America on an early morning TV show. Watched this some time ago.


Episode 5 of the Crown – My husband and I both enjoyed it. I thought Diana was well caste.

Cosy nightwear to keep us warm:

Another great way to keep warm in the evenings and save on our ever-increasingly expensive heating bills is to add a layer of thermal underwear. You might like to check out my recent post recommending my selection here.


2022 has been a very exhausting year. We moved house last February and are still renting in Thames Ditton. Happily, we have found a place to buy in the village. It has the most magnificent views of the river Thames with Hampton Court bridge just in view. We plan to move there in Mid-February.

We will be going to France just after Christmas for a well-overdue rest. I hope to publish a post on St. Tropez market and the local Brocante while I am there.

    At 72 I prefer ‘Jamie’s, nightgowns ride up, as a constant restless sleeper, I can attest ‘Jamie’s keep me warmer!
    Have a wonderful holiday season, Josephine and community here.

    Happy Christmas, Josephine! Congratulations on finding your new home. Enjoy your getaway! It is zero degrees F here today and our greyhounds don’t like it. They must wear coats to go outside for five minutes.

    Thank you for sharing your guidance though out 2022, Josephine. Thanks in large part to following your lead, I managed to do more with less and feel pretty pulled together.

    As I head into 2023, I need to prioritize my health and I want to give back to my community. I’m very happy for your news about your new home!

    We worry about our daily wear, but I don’t think we worry enough about sleepwear. I sleep better in something pretty!
