From the Archives Friday

I'm posting this one today because a friend who is moving countries gave me her ironing board (amongst 3 big bags of other stuff. It's like Christmas here) The ironing board featured below broke a good 6 months + ago. I obviously don't iron very often. In fact I Iron like, never unless its for something really important. Now I will have no excuse. I luckily (or unluckily) have ALOT of Expat friends and I seem to inherit ALOT of stuff every few months.

AT the local store last week on the far wall was one IRONING BOARD leaning against the wall for sale.. in my defense I will say its cover was very bright - multicoloured swirls ~



Miss 2 Years old says...


Mum. Mum.


Surfboard!!


I say "No darling, Ironing Board."

NO! NOT!


IT SURFBOARD!!


Me laughing.. Ok darling.. It Surfboard...


So there you have it.. even my 2 year old knows that I don't Iron...It's true I can't remember the last time I Ironed.. probably when the MR had a job interview or something..For crafting/quilting purposes I sometimes Iron on the Kitchen bench with a towel..... But the board never comes out....I have my excuses..


My crazy always under my feet kids would have ended up in emergency with burns, no room to have a board set up, an old iron which would probably leave more marks than iron out the wrinkles, and of course No Ironing means I have more time for Blogging ;)



Maybe I will get the Ironing Board out and let the kids have a surf on it... Yes.. I am off to find it now and take some photos :) I will be right back.

i had the same issue with ironing boards. Now i live in a house where the laundry is actually big enough to have the ironing board stay up. So it does get used more often. The big freezer has it's own home in a store room. This house has a STORE ROOM and 2 sheds.
