There are some things I love about winter though – yummy comfort food like roast lamb dinners and hot chocolate , snuggling under my doona ( Duvet for all you non Aussies !) and rugging up in my comfiest winter PJ’s complete with fluffy bed socks .
The other day I was reminded of my love of fluffy socks when I passed a bargain bin in Woolworths containing not one but TWO pairs of fluffy socks for $3 ! Talk about a bargain ! Down south you are lucky to get one pair for under $7 so I snapped them up straight away like the clever girl that I am … So clever I didn’t stop to think why Woolworths were selling them at that awesome price .
I have since worked out that the reason fluffy socks are so cheap up here is because we don’t actually have a winter. We had our coldest April night in 40 years over the weekend , it was all over the news and locals could not stop complaining about how freezing it was. The temperature was 18 degrees. Not minus 18 degrees ,18 above zero my friends and that ,apparently, is ridiculously cold. I’m not at that stage yet ….
Any way I have no idea what I’m going to use these socks for. Cleaning comes to mind , they do look like they would come in handy when i need to dust the furniture ( yeah like that happens often !).
I searched google and came up with a few inspirational ideas …
If Chaos was smaller I could use them as little doggy jackets ..
I could make a fluffy sock monkey ….

I could make fluffy sock cupcakes …..
I’m just lucky that I don’t have a fluffy cat …..
Does anybody else have ideas for my fluffy socks ?
