I'm a perfectionist in my work life and I'm the same when it comes to ironing [:D]

We share "Dobby walking", he often gets walked 4 times a day as we both love spending time with him.

I don't iron - everything is dried on hangers on the line and never looks too crumpled!

I always make sure mine is done and put away by Sunday night. I don't have to worry about it until the following weekend then.

I went through a phase years ago of just ironing what I needed for a couple of days and letting it just pile up.

Now, even though I hate it, I hate seeing it lying around.

My clothes always look fine - I asked my mum what she thought (knowing she'd be honest!) and she said they were fine.

I never wear 'proper' shirts for work, and my Tesco cheapie trousers don't need ironing so it's not a problem!

I have to iron everything - my washing machine creases everything, even so called "non -iron" stuff.

Weather has been glorious here today - I ntook Dobby down the beach at 8am and you could feel the sun [8D] Spent the rest of the day gardening and lounging about in the sunshine....a good bank holiday [8D]

Hope everyone is enjoying their day.

I've been round every garden and DIY centre in the area - Dave wants a new BBQ! He's found one he likes, but whether or not he'll part with the money is a different matter!

We wash everything on a cool wash and it all seems to come out ok. If anything was too creased then obviously I would iron it, just in case you think I'm really scruffy!

[:D] Skippy, not for one minute would I think you were scruffy.

Are the BBQ's on sale? We could do with a new one - we tend to use the disposable ones at the moment [:I]

The only ones that we saw that were on sale didn't quite meet his specifications! There's nothing wrong with ours, but it doesn't have a side burner or a rack for keeping food warm.

Dave's kept my discount card for the local garden centre and I can't help thinking I'll come home one day this week to find a new BBQ!

I clean and iron for a living. Hate ding my cleaning but the ironing I tag on the end of any I have for other people. I am going to my daughters this thursday as she sais she has a room full of irining and no clother to wear so I will go and spend a day doing it for her while I dog sit. I use to be in the RAF and had to iron shirts fit for parade with starch and whatnot so the ironing I do now is a piece of cake.
