How does such a large family manage to deal with socks?

COMMENT: The return of good weather shouldn’t bring dread

Have your say

What would you do with 16 children? I really can’t comprehend how the Radford family – the biggest family in the UK – can cope with that many people in the house.

That’s without the additional effort of feeding them, organising them and loving them.

But congratulations to the Radfords for going after what they want and managing to make that work with number 17 now on his/her way.

I do wonder, though, how they manage with socks, which to me seem to cause the most friction in many households.

As in which ones belong to who, where the missing ones have disappeared to and why some smell yet are being worn again.

Seventeen children and socks? Not today thank you.
