    Default Pyjama Women

    A headmaster in Belfast has ordered mothers not to drop their children off at school dressed only in their pyjamas. Good to see that these slovenly cows are not exclusive to Liverpool then!

    I know my mother and grandmother used to be appalled by Liverpool missuses who would go out in their curlers. Do you still see that around the city???

    I'm afraid standards have slipped since the days of Hilda Ogden who at least got dressed. Todays breed of chavettes go out in their night gear.

    A woman that used to get on my bus to work always wore smart tops and her pink PJ's bottoms. To think that she's slept in em all night and then she's got em on all day too......

    there are quite a few women who take their kids to my daughters school who come just in their PJs
    some of them even change their pjs during the day & arrive at 3pm wearing a different pairdon't know why they don't change into clean clothes
    If you can't dazzle them with brilliance,baffle them with bull

    I believe most of the women who ventured out of their homes in curlers were working mothers. These women usually had a full time job in a factory or bag warehouse some place and a family to feed at home which left them with very time to devote to themselves. They also had very little, if any, disposable income and could not afford the services of a hair dresser, unlike most middle and upper income women. These same working class women could not afford nylon stockings and so opted for the cheap alternative, leg tan. The jewelry and perfume (evening in Paris) they wore was usually Woolworth bought, except for a wedding ring and perhaps a sovereign or half sovereign passed down from mother to daughter. Their clothes were poor, well worn and many times repaired and, fashion wise, all to often years out of date. If they were lucky enough to have a husband who "went away to sea" they might, just might, upon his return from a long voyage, get a bottle of Channel #5 which they would cherrish and, when the bottle was empty, painstakingly refill it with distilled water and eventually leave the empty, rinsed, bottle in their drawer with their "smalls".

    I know this because my late mother was one of those working class women, a lady in every sense of the word.
