The Mystery of the Lost Socks

matching socks 150x150 The Mystery of the Lost SocksIt is to the delight of mothers across the world the feeling we share when we have completed our laundry and all socks remain joyfully with their companion.  We also share the painful woes of how it feels to be left with a basket of socks that are missing their soulmate.  SIGH………..

OK, so I might be getting a bit dramatic here but after all I am trying to find a way to make the topic of socks sound interesting!

In my house, this problem is getting seriously ridiculous.   I am beginning to like the company LittleMismatched whose whole concept stems from this dilemma. No, they did NOT pay me to write this blog.   Perhaps after reading this they will consider to send me some socks to sample!

I do not think they belong to anyone in my family.    I’ve decided it must be from all those events we call parties and  sleepovers.  


PS.  if one of these socks belong to you, send me an email and I will gladly return to it’s rightful owner icon smile The Mystery of the Lost Socks
