Hey everyone! Hope you are all enjoying this lovely weather while it lasts :) I've just stumbled upon a news article from 2006 (yes i know, old news!!) but i was dumbfounded reading it ... The NHS Trust in East Lancashire had just banned all staff from wearing novelty socks and even made a policy about it! The reason for this? They are offensive and unprofessional. It was commented that novelty silly socks should be compulsory in the children's ward (read it here). What do you guys think? I personally think i'd like it if i were in the hospital and just got a glimpse of a doctor wearing a bright pair of socks! Hospital staff work extremely hard in some very difficult situations, and maybe a pair of bright socks will help them get through their day and perhaps cheer patients up along  the way too. 

That's all for now :)
