Weapon of choice

I would have liked to be able to report that during the Vuelta my hors categorie ironing mountain has been much reduced; but that would be a lie. If anything it’s grown and having sorted it into various piles, in an effort to make it look as if I’ve done something, it now closely resembles a Vuelta

parcours, not dissmilar to this.  The small 3rd category climb is my pile of ironing while the remaining peaks are my husband’s. I have yet to figure out how this man generates so much ironing. I can only give thanks that his favoured sport of the moment (cycling) has kit which does not need ironing. A major improvement on tennis and golf where both kits have to be ironed. In addition, it requires some ingenuity to restore the snowy whiteness of tennis attire after he’s played on clay courts. It’s probably no different to dealing with the cycling attire of teams Francaise des Jeux, Columbia-HTC and Cervelo after a day riding in the rain. I wonder what they use? My weapon of choice is low temperature Ariel, plus Vanish (for whites), on a long, cool wash-cycle.

One thought on “Weapon of choice

  1. Hi Sheree,
    I think Claire came to the same conclusions as you about ironing many years ago when we first began living together and she promptly refused to have anything more to do with it. Consequently I do my own. You see Claire imposed her will early in our relationship when all I wanted was sex and was willing to agree to any demands! I used to do my own washing as well but Claire (quite unreasonably I feel) baulked at my efforts to do a complete washing cycle involving one pair of socks that I particularly wanted to wear that day. Now I’m banned from the washing machine.
    How unfair is that??
    Love
    Trevor
