I gave up ironing after my 3rd child was born

I used to iron my ex's work shirts but even that stopped 4 years ago with the divorce, so nope, but I can help motivate you to stop doing it :D

I'm working from home today

You are on your last "free" day today no?

I hope you found something to do other than ironing

Yes my last free day, I have to nip out but I haven't anything to do after lunch.

I need to get my daughter some lunch (she's off school with a fever) and head out for a small trot

then back to slaving away on the computer

Flat out I bet!

Creases, what creases!

I'm alone for now so nobody can check my ironing..

my work is more mental than physical - sometimes I need distractions or music to get my brain to think about something while I leave it alone - it seriously works better that way lol

not sure what that says about me :D

What could possibly distract a dedicated worker like you! πŸ˜‚

when I work in the office I have headphones on 90% of the time :D I'm more productive that way

So when you are in the office but not working which is probably 90% of the time, does your boss notice? πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‰

my boss can see my screen the whole time - so he would notice if I didn't work

I am actually a productive little bunny 90% of the time

Hang it out to dry right and you'll never know who ironed what after 30 mins of wearing it :D

I used to know someone who would iron underpants... I KNOW!! I never iron except very special stuff and if my husband needs shirts for work then he can do his own damn ironing! In 40 years, no-one has called me up on it yet!

Early days, someone will call you up on it, just you wait. πŸ˜‰

Let them try! They will get an ear full about my full time job, 2 dogs, directing a youth theatre and taking care of my very sick fathers finances for him. I barely have time to go to the loo, let alone iron!

Speaking of which, I had better get back to it!!

Your ironing isn't going to do itself . I actually like ironing and cleaning. I must be weird or something. I always found it therapeutic until I found running of course, nothing beats that.

I take it by this time it's all done . 😊😊

You been for that run yet? If your still looking at excuses I have grass needing cut, a wardrobe to build, wallpaper to strip .... but can’t do any of that as want to go out in wind and rain for my 2nd consolidation run, so if you could just get up here and do some of these that would be great.
