What to do if it rains...

May I introduce our new crew member? This is Busby. Don't look too long. He'll mess with your mind.

He is a Stupid Sock Creature. That's not me being disparaging about my own handiwork. He is made from a pair of socks following instructions in the funny and practical book, Stupid Sock Creatures by John Murphy. If you Google him you will see many far more bizarre creations. Plus, I haven't adhered to his ethos of creating something from discarded socks. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Our socks are not fit for recycling once we've had our use out of them. So I'm scouring the markets for cheap and suitable socks. One day you have a pair of slightly dodgy socks, the next thing you know, they have metamorphosed into a crazy creature, and you've only got yourself to blame (and Mr Murphy of course).

OK, there is an element of 'scary' here that everyone is pretending isn't there... ;-)

Don't be scared. Busby is quite tame actually, and he has fitted in very well chez nous. He's looking forward to meeting you too!!!
