How many people live in your home?
And how many socks?

A bit of a mundane subject compared to cherry blossom in Japan - which I am enjoying very much Lucille.

Am enjoying the blossom in your garden too! Lovely post about what a garden means to us. (Socks do breed I'm sure..)
LOL - far fewer than there used to be, on both accounts!

Ah, I wondered when someone would mention the mystery of single socks!

Aaah! The extraordinary one sock mystery. This links very well with some of your other 'Simplys'. Like why do I have a large basket of single socks? Simply get rid?My son is rather fond of odd socks and I always ( rather predictably) say 'You have another pair just like that.' ,

Simply organise/get rid/fun/stylish....you can see where I'm going with this can't you Jane!
I have a sock story. Years ago when we live in a flat, we had some lovely neighbours, one of whom was a Malaysian lady with two young children. While we used the communal washing machine downstairs, she had the luxury of a machine in her bathroom. One day, she rang my doorbell and asked if I could help - she'd started a load of laundry and then found two small socks she'd forgotten. For some reason, she then thought she could add them to the washing powder compartment and popped them in, realising almost at the same moment what a silly thing she was doing… I couldn't help but laugh (and have often done so since when I thought about it!) and she was very lucky because they went straight round the drum and to the filter, where we rescued them - she was extremely red-faced about it but we did have a giggle!!

Gosh! I wonder if someone will invent a little door for just such an event? Sooo useful..
