I hate ironing. I think it must stem from my childhood when my sister and I were made to do all the laundry for our family of five every Sunday.
As we had no washing machine at home in those days, we had to trudge up to the High Street with our load of dirty laundry and use the local launderette. This took a few hours to wash and dry everything then pack it back into the trolley to trudge back home.
Everything was then piled into a basket and placed next to the ironing board for us to iron.
Dad was quite good at ironing his own clothes when he needed them but mum insisted that my sister and I had to do everything else.
Now that the summer season is upon us, we have opened our small guest annexe for B&B guests so I shall be spending the next few months cleaning, washing and yes - ironing!
I'm not keen on ironing but I do love freshly ironed sheets.ReplyDelete
I do it for our guests but I don't bother for us - P is such a restless sleeper that the sheets end up in a tangled mess after an hour or so!Delete
It's like lots of other things - quite a pleasant occupation so long as you've got nothing else to do.ReplyDelete
Also, wrestling with the huge king-size bed sheets is a problem when you are only 5ft 3in with short arms!Delete
I quite like ironing and as I now live alone there is never a huge pile waiting for me.ReplyDelete
We have now managed to amass a wardrobe of mainly non-iron clothing, or at least minimal ironing (and NOT polyester!) so we don't have a large pile until the B&B guests arrive. I used to do the ironing to Radio 4 but as I can no longer hear the radio I don't have a distraction.Delete
Gee, I don't think I've ever slept on sheets that have been ironed! I think I might have to try it.ReplyDelete
You may get a taste for it!Delete
Our family doesn't iron! Well, mostly. My daughter has a system when she hangs out clothes and doesn't iron anything.ReplyDelete
You need a big presser for those sheets!
