A somewhat pleasurable "semi" derived from the relative freedom of wearing nothing but a dressing gown, which is all well and good. However, trying to make your way across the kitchen of a morning in front of friends and family whilst exhibiting an exaggerated bobbing motion from below the waist can subject you to a world of embarrassment.
The sun beaming in through the window as I read the paper and ate my toast this morning precipitated a semi at just the wrong moment. I had to walk past the mother in law with a serious dressing gown bobber!!

The practice of working from home on a Friday. Has become widespread with the advent of the broadband connection. The practice originates from the 1980s, when bankers, lawyer and other professionals elected to have a day of dressing casually on Friday, so they would not ruin their suits with spilt beer in the evening. This was known as dress-down Friday. However the act of selecting casual clothes prroved beyond these individuals who now simply just work from home in their dressing gown.
