Running spurs from sockets

I'm curently trying to put some extra sockets in my living room. At the moment there are three double sockets connected to the ring main (which look like they have been converted from the original single sockets).

I have already added an extra double socket by running a spur from one of the existing sockets. I'd like to add one more double socket by running another spur from one of the other sockets on the ring main (hope this all makes sense). Is there a limit to the number of spurs I can run, via existing sockets, off the ring main :?:

yes, one spur per ring socket.

but why not make the new sockets part of the ring, its not that hard.
