Now we are into May it’s the end of the football season and the peak of the wedding season so here are a couple of related pyjama stories. Chelsea launched their new home kit for the 2016-17 season. It featured the club’s watermarked lion pattern on the front with Adidas’ trademark three stripes down each side. Some of the Stamford Bridge fans have taken to social media to voice concerns at the pricing. The home shirt will be priced at £90 and to complete the strip with the club’s match day shorts and socks will set you back close to £150. Some of the faithful objected to the design too saying it resembles pyjamas. Anyone for a Chelsea blue onesie which we could probably produce for £25? These pyjama stories seem to come around every season though as last year Real Madrid faced the same criticism of having a pyjama strip.
The Nottingham Post reported that their City is joining the usual favourites like London, Brighton, Manchester, and Bournemouth as the best destination to go for stag parties and hen dos. Specialist event organiser, Stagit reported a surge for demand in the city, with inquiries for Nottingham increasing by 80 per cent so far this year compared to last. One of the options is to head to Sherwood Forest (in a Robin Hood onesie?) for group activities. How about paintballing or laser clay pigeon-shooting? Plus the more unusual, blindfolded 4×4 driving and Segway rides to sort out the women from the girls or the hens out from the chicks. Nottingham is also near the top of the UK stag party destination table compiled by stag organiser Chillisauce.
And whilst we are looking at pyjama stories, we couldn’t resist this report from social media of a Glasgow man who asked his little cousin what she wanted for her birthday. When she replied “Frozen Pyjamas”, instead of going to get the Disney-themed nightwear, he simply stuck a pair of pyjamas in the freezer. In a little while they were completely solid and the gift of frozen pyjamas was complete. No reports how the little girl reacted but let’s hope she has a sense of humour. Let us have your fun pyjama stories and we may send you a free adult onesie, unfrozen of course.
