Is this a British yard or an American yard which we would call a garden?
The houses in the States are big compared to us.

There's 3 feet in a yard, so that leaves a pair for whoever's not in the yard.
Blythburgh's socks bring all the boys to the yard.

Nothing to report which is hardly surprising as they told me they would send me an email when my order is dispatched. Still waiting for that email. Site said socks "low stock" but the 2 white tees I also ordered did not have that warning. Guess it is all or nothing in the dispatch dept.

The parcel has arrived. The blurb on the left said black and white. The write up on the right said white.

Confused or what.

Anyway I have 3 pairs of black and 2 pairs of white in each pack. So I am a happy bunny and glad I went for 2 packs. If I had only bought one pack it would have meant re-ordering and the p and p is not free by any means

That bring your dilemma to an amicable conclusion.

All the descriptions say pack of 3 , 5 , 7 ect but this obviously means pairs as some packs are in different designs/colours https://www.jdwilliams.co.uk/shop//_/N- ... 4&type=cmr

eg https://www.jdwilliams.co.uk/shop/pring ... ,size:7-11 says 3 socks , but read the full description and it says "Pringle pack of 3 pairs of plain socks "

I wanted black so have six pairs of my prefered colour and 4 pairs to be donated to a charity shop.

Why can't these sites make things clear. Trying to find a fridge freezer that will fit and some of the web sites we have looked at are just so poor.

I am gobsmacked at how high so many of them are. How tall do they think the average user is?

And we have the cooker in one corner, then the washing machine, storage and then the fridge freezer in the next corner. No it cannot go the other side due to storage/work surface. Almost all are too big depth wide. Found one but "Which" does not like it. So the radical idea 'im indoors came up with last night is to get rid of cooker and have hob, oven built in to work top with fridge freezer where the cooker is now. As we are having new storage as well as a now sink/ washing machine / fridge freezer it seems a good idea. Will cost more than we had budgeted for but still affordable.

A sliding door next to cooker so no door frame to worry about.

Why are fridge/freezers getting so tall with ever widening depth?

when you decide on one make sure the door hinges are on the side you want. Some firms charge extra to change the side the door hinges fit on
