    Do YOU do IRONING?


    0 Not allowed!
    Just finished ironing my work shirts for the week. Anyone who knows / has met me will agree I'm not exactly military standard but with several work shirts, watching the football clobber and my son's playing the football clobber it feels very, very wrong to get anyone else to do it. I'm in to a nice routine now where, on a Sunday night, I bring down the creased clothes, put on some tunes and iron till I'm done.

    I know some blokes who rely totally on their wives for this and others who wouldn't let another soul touch their threads. Which are you?

      Have always done my work shirts.......Missus tends to do the rest though. I don't mind doing it at all, quite therapeutic. Happy to have the radio or TV on while I do it.

      That'll be me.

      Not for any reason, really, and certainly not some chauvinistic "that's a job for a woman" belief. She also does most of the gardening, whilst I cook the family meal every night. It's just the way it's evolved.

      If there's something I want to wear and it needs ironing, I'll obviously just get on and do it, but that doesn't seem to happen very often.
      Please buy from Amazon via this link. Thanks.

      Iron as you go. If I don't, it won't happen, but I'm not spending an entire afternoon ironing a washing machine load.

      My missus insists on doing it...seems to get some kind of weird perversion out of ironing everything in sight, including my gruds...just let her crack on with it.

      You sound like my sister. She loves ironing - irons everything from bedding to socks and underwear and tee-towels. If fact, if you walk past her, she will iron you and the clothes on your back if she sees a crease in them.
