  • Feeling a bit daft!

    Ok, so I decide to get out some fabric and have a right good sewing session. The only thing is my material cupboard is a bit untidy and everything comes out a bit crumpled (understatement in most cases) and needs a right good iron before I can use it. So, out comes the iron and I set about a bit of denim for DD's bag. Half way through and the iron lost heat and stopped working. Dead.
    "Right kids, shoes on were off to get an iron from town"!
    Dashed in to town with very reluctant kids (they had to be prized off the Wii) and purchased new iron.

    Enter kitchen to try out new iron but lights don't come on. "Probably another bulb blown again, better go and flick the switch up in the fuse box again" says I. Flick switch, lights come on and so does the iron that I left plugged in whilst I was out!

    If only I'd thought of that before I spent £15 on another iron!

      Hey

      Turn it into a positive

      When iron no1 does blow - at least you will have another and not have to dash into town!

        Or you can get both of the kids to do the ironing for you?

          you could have an iron in each hand and do it twice as quickly?

              I too hate ironing - so don't do it

              The stares I get when out shopping, screwing up clothes to see how much they crease

              If they don't pass the Jane test - I don't buy them!

                    hahahhaaaa! I have a bag of ironing that has been in the bottom of the wardrobe since October. Obviously whatever is in there isn't missed. One day I might get round to it, but much to busy to right now

                          Ironing pile reaches is about chest high now - the only reason I've had the iron out recently is to do all the ribbons to make my invitations!

                            My Mum has a famous ironing pile (well, cupboard now) that goes back to the early 70s!

                            Talking of trip switches, I once had a full blown row with the electric company when I swore blind I had checked my trip switch and that 'yes' there MUST be a power cut somewhere (didn't think to check it before I called and you can guess who was in the wrong - ME)!

                              If your ironing pile is more than 2 inches - you have too many clothes - chuck some out
