As reported yesterday (Day 22), the socks have been picked up. They made it to the floor in front of the washing machine courtesy of D2 . From where I placed them in the washing machine. At which point Frodo took over and after a sunny afternoon out on the washing line they have now joined a pile of clothes on the sofa waiting to be taken upstairs. D2 claims her motive was that she wanted to tidy up before she went away for a month. Could it be that she had an inkling that someone else would pick them up in her absence and then she would miss the chance of being mentioned in blog comments which acknowledge that she has done the ‘right thing’? Any such comments will be gratefully received as they may prompt a repeat of this behaviour. What have I learnt from the investigation? Not a lot due to the sample being so small but it would suggest that if I ignore discarded items around my house they will eventually be moved by someone else.
In other news, I have found two more pairs of sandals. Another toe post pair and a pair with square heels. The latter pair were a real bargain several years ago and each summer I try them out with the same result – blisters. It has crossed my mind that this shifts into the ‘waste of money’ category but maybe this will be the year that they prove they deserve the title of ‘real bargain’. I’ll give them a chance to prove themselves tomorrow.
