Little leggies

How many times can you wear the same pair of socks? Well, on Planet Max sometimes twice (to save on washing powder, naturally). I must say it only happens if he's worn the said pair for the afternoon or so, so he's not a complete dirtbag.

I suppose it wouldn't bother me so much if the said pair then actually ended up in the laundry basket. But Max usually just drops them on the stairs and it's a long way up to where the laundry basket is. Poor little mites struggle up the stairs for hours on end, pining for a helping hand....

Yesterday I felt so sorry for their lonely, Sisyphus plight, I gave them legs. Cardboard cut-outs, two to a sock, sewn on with a bit of thread. Each labelled "I've grown a leggie!" Then I waited for Max.

They got up the stairs relatively quickly after that.


  1. I have the worse habit of leaving my socks every where! So I can relate to this story. Socks can could at least get a couple of wears to them. The ones I have with holes are naturally 'air conditioned.'


  2. hi you got beautiful blog and writing take care

  3. Ha ha! Air conditioned socks! I like that! Max has a special relationship with these... I have tried to come between him and his beloved "holies" but he says if they go, he goes...

  4. Hi Baili. Thank you for your kind words x
