    Why does everyone in the UK seem to iron so much

    'cos the clothes are creased!

    I did a couple of DH work shirts and trousers - he needs those after all, and 2 pairs of jeans - that'll do for now. I hung up a couple of bits i think i can get away without doing!


    then i went for a pee and when i flushed the water overflowed onto the floor......i've left it covered it towels for now as i have to go out and get the boy from school!

    Reminds me of when that happened when we were at the Rodeway in 2007.

    I hadn't just had a pee though...

    I don't iron anything and don't own an iron (but somehow own an ironing board). However, I did just buy one of those personal steamers. I'm hoping it will work well.

    Ya know, I can't remember the last time I ironed anything. I love perma press fabric
    Ditto! Most of my professional clothes are microfiber. And those that aren't are blends of textiles that either make wrinkles look like part of the texture or somehow eliminate them! Have a few things that have to be pressed or ironed, but I remember ironing everything--including sheets and underwear--when I was a child, so I minimize ironing as much as possible. However, I do press a lot when sewing.

    DB, you have guilt written all over your heart about this!

    I'm proud of you for working really hard at doing nothing so you can heal properly! :)

    That's it!! A lot of people in the UK hang the wash and don't have dryers so they have to iron I bet.
