Wine or ironing?

It's Friday night after a very long, emotional week. Should I; a) Tackle a mountain of ironing therefore making life easier (less cries of "Where's my....? "and subsequent pile rooting) and feeling smug. Or b) Open a bottle of red and take command of the remotes... But this means probable crying tomorrow. (me. Possibly kids too.) Or c) Give up and go to bed.

  • Fraid if it were me, it'd probably be neither! I can only manage 1 glass of wine / alcohol without being badly affected and then only with a meal and I'm very obsessive with the ironing these days I can only do 6 items max at a time so have to do 6 a day or it builds up too much what a life eh?

    Oh for normality!!!!

    Enjoy the wine, life's too short xxxxxxxx Janet

  • I know what is it with this head injury !! It makes us walk and talk like we have had a few, gives us a perpetual headache like the mother of all hangovers but won't let us tolerate more than one :-(

    The persons whom invented head injuries has a weird sense of humour :-)

  • THIS IS THE PERFECT WAY TO EXPLAIN BI TO SO CALLED NORMAL PEOPLE. I WILL USE IT!!

  • Funny that............I've just finished an overdue pile of ironing & now looking through Headway posts with cup of cappuccino ........................and feeling exceedingly smug !!

  • I can't make decisions so decided to do all 3. I'll iron at least 6 things, then have a glass of wine and go to bed.

    Alcohol isn't a good idea for me either.... But I think one glass is justified. Might get some sleep. (yes I know that isn't a wise plan but it does help stop nightmares. Ptsd is no fun)

    The ironing pile is like a big ugly boil. Just knowing it's there is misery but a massive relief once it's gone! Xx

  • Good compromise. Good luck. Sleep well. :-) xx

  • I do my mountain on Sunday in preparation for Monday. I wash on Thursday Friday and Saturday. There is not that much really I just forget to empty washer into dryer.

    I like to have a glass of wine occasionally. I get the mini bottles of wine because when I have one glass I don't want another for months.

    I'm a very cheap night out!

    Hope you make a dent in the pile and relax with a drop of wine before you drop into bed!

  • I think I would chosen the more needed ones - then had my wine and sod the rest lol

  • Confession. I had 2 glasses of wine and did no ironing at all! On a mission now though... Well I'm planning on being on a mission, might stick the kettle on first... Xx

  • My kind of girl xxxxxx Janet

  • SUGGESTIONS: GET SOMEONE ELSE TO DO THE IRONING, BUY ONLY FABRICS THAT DON'T NEED IRONNG!, ASK YOURSELF DOES THIS ARTICLE REALLY NEED IRONING- EG SHEETS ETC NO ONES GOING TO SEE THEM ON THE BED IT'S NOT BEING LAZY OR SLOVENLY IT'S SELF PRESERVATION.. THEN HAVE A GLASS OF WINE & GRAB THE REMOTES.

  • Ive never done sheets, don't see the point, I have a shop right across the road that does ironing, so I went in to see the cost, £1 an item 90p for tshirts, that's when I decided I'd do 6 items a day, well it's gone up to 10 now, that's £10 worth each day, I'm worth a fortune!! I just need to do it more regularly, like now I can't get in the kitchen cos my husbands fixing the unit that's collapsed, but that's ok, any excuse

  • Don't drink! Okay, I'm biased -histotoxic hypoxia from alcohol poisoning is the reason why I have brain damage.. But as long as you are very careful with it you should be okay, just remember it is a form of poison.

  • I conquered my mountain! Sat on top of it wearing a party hat, waving a little flag... Nah, but I did enjoy that smugness... until I folded the next 3 loads. Onwards and upwards! Xx
