Waste to Hip Ratio

My man was very keen to empty the wash machine in to the tumble dryer. Strange, he's not usually into domestic tasks as 'they are demeaning'. Mmmm - I know the feeling. But he wanted his pyjamas for tonight. When I asked about the other 3 sets he said they didn't fit and were not comfortable enough. He needed a larger size. Would I buy some more when next I shopped at M&S. They don't do any larger - I bought the XXL size last time - he's not put on that much weight - the XXL should be fine. (Even if I had washed them at 75 degrees a few times in error. When I'm in a rush my laundry sorting can be a bit slap dash). He couldn't believe that there aren't larger sizes to be had and I didn't believe that he needed larger. I made him put on the new pyjamas bought last autumn. He told me that the 'legs are too long I trip up in them'. We had an modelling session. No wonder he needs a larger size. I'm not surprised the legs are too long. He hates being constricted - he wants to be comfortable. So he wears the waist down on his hips. Therefore he needs a waist size that will fit around his hips. All I need to do now is find somewhere that sell pyjamas that fit a 48" waist but with very short legs. I wonder where the Hippo in the Silentnight bed gets his pyjamas.

Nothing - but as he also has a low thyroid he always feels the cold. Even in 80 deg in mid summer. If you see a chap in mid summer with a thick sweater on - that's my boy.

Don't Fields of Sidmouth have all the answers? :-)

(My parents love the coffee shop there...)

I know, Cathy they probably do. But I've not been into Field's recently as I'm avoiding all coffee shops (other than Brophy's. While on my diet Field's coffee shop and their toasted tea cakes are out of bounds.
