I have just conceded defeat in my war against odd socks and bought each of my children a set of 6 odd socks for christmas!
If you can't beat them...

I just needed to get that off my chest!

Funny thing is the old one did it and this new one we bought in the summer does too! Wasn't mentioned in the spec though!

Can't blame the washing machine in our house, any pair of socks that's at all pale is carefully sorted so one sock gets washed with the reds and the other with the blues, so eventually finding a pair is a matter of trying to find either two vaguely pinkish socks or two vaguely bluish socks that sort of match in a poor light.

If I mention it to Mrs 1880 I just get a diatribe about learning to use the washing machine... :lol:

Boys are very considerate in their underpant washing, to save their mother's they tend to turn them inside out and wear them twice - as for the fith time, well, commando comes to mind :oops: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's just hideous,Snowdrops. I can't really understand it, because my eldest son often wears TWO pairs of pants....goodness knows why.I don't ask, because I think its best just not to know.

I limit thorough cleaning of DCs bedrooms to three times per year, during the longer school holidays - yes, I know, but too many other battles to fight. Last time, we unearthed six or seven pairs of used pants from under the debris in DS2s room!
