Project 365 #324: 201109 A Pressing Engagement

    Newer Older

    I've mentioned before that Friday night usually involves doing some washing. Of late, I've taken to doing the ironing on Friday night as well - at least when convenient. Stuff is just much easier to iron when it hasn't been sitting in the dryer overnight.

    I realise that spending Friday night ironing is tragic, but to each their own I say!

    I'm getting better at it, but I must confess to still struggling with women's clothes. To iron an item you need to understand how it works, and here I struggle! With blokes' clothes they're usually dead easy, but all of those beautiful bumps, bulges and curves that make the feminine form (in all its flavours) such an aesthetic delight seem to lead to a mysterious labyrinth of nips, darts, tucks and pleats of seemingly byzantine complexity!

    Maybe I should follow the advice of some of my sixth form pupils who I overheard the other day: "Ironing? Oh God, I never iron a thing!"

      Pete, you a new age man. I admire you!

      I'm told ( by Pam) that the secret is to buy non-iron clothes and hang everything else out to dry in the wind, that way you end up with less creases.

      You stopped the ironing process to take your photo. I just hope that iron didn't make a scorch mark in the process.

      I'm also relived to find that the item you were ironing did not belong to you.

      Another great documentary picture by the way.

      Ah, the rather lurid garment under the iron is in fact the ironing board cover. I'd never wear anything that loud ;)

      The iron was also turned off at this point, so nothing got burnt.

      As for hanging everything out to dry in the wind...ah, for a Spanish climate. ;)
