As I bought quite a lot of clothing at the end of last year I'm kind of having a no clothes buying year. I am very disappointed to be going through socks like there's no tomorrow. This is the downside to binge buying clothes, things tend to wear out at the same time. I guess buying socks and underwear maybe isn't quite the same as buying outerwear. I bought a pair of walking socks at the weekend, they were £4.99 so could have been cheaper, could have been dearer. I went for them as they are size 3-5.5 rather than the general size 4-8 which can wrinkle and rub when we're doing a longer walk. Hopefully they'll do the trick.
