The most fabulous pair of socks in the whole world.

It's all Jo Mama's fault.
I never knew I was missing out.
I never knew that I was lacking special socks until I read her blog. 
I'm Irish, living in Australia, and I don't own any Irish themed socks. 
Jo Mama does. 
In fact after a recent shopping spree she showed them off on her blog.
I was consumed with jealousy.
I wanted some too. 
But in Australia where on earth would I find some...?
And so today the sock fairy waved her magic wand and as I walked past a street stall what did I see?
Stripy green socks made just for me!
Thank you Jo Mama for showing me what I was missing.
Thank you old wizened Chinese stall vendor for stocking just one pair of these amazing long socks.
Thank you Mr B for coughing up the cash because I hadn't bothered bringing my bag!
I feel complete at last!

  6. thanks for your advice on my blog! I too have given into the chocolate and salt cravings.
    Love the pics of your socks! Very cute, and I have to add, I bought a pair of rather cute comfy green striped slippers for St Paddy's day, and I am not even Irish. but my Irish uncle Paddy is! (true)
    I look forward to reading more about you and your family!

  7. LOL We are both loving our feet (my post this afternoon). I guess great minds think alike. Love your socks.
