Ironing was the most useful thing dh learnt in the Navy. They'd probably argue that it was to spot enemy aircraft on a radar.

Mine can iron but that's because he's not got piles of it to do... He takes his own sweet time, with a cuppa, the radio on, so of course he's going to be good at it. I have yet to see him iron any of my clothes.

bolleaux ... my DH irons much better than me ...
Or at least that is what he thinks and that suits me just fine wink

Big hairy bollocks!

I iron much better than any woman I have known. Hours spent ironing in the pleats on skirts and dresses. Shifting the shoulders round to get those tricksy bits. Steaming the ends of sleeves to crip up the cuffs.

I always say that there is a reason that men have greater upper body strength - ironing and hoovering.

On top of that the armed forces trained him to iron and I feel it would be remiss of me to let the training go to waste.

I am concientious like that

Was so late oh creased butterfly, as a friend and I were watching "The Fellowship of the Ring", filmed round your way, I think??
Doesn't it go on, and on, and takes longer to watch the film than read the book!!Still, lots of very pretty folk to look at, in magnificent scenery. You lucky thing.

Can't iron won't iron.

lou33 Thu 13-Sep-07 11:11:53

i dont iron ever

EricL Thu 13-Sep-07 14:45:39

I do all the ironing in my house. The DW moans about how long it takes me but i still get it done.

Hate it though and would get an ironing service if we had a bit more cash.

unknownrebelbang Thu 13-Sep-07 14:52:30

DH has taught all three lads to iron too.

lou33 Thu 13-Sep-07 14:58:20

i do have an ironing pile, but i find if i leave it folded long enough i can pull the stuff out at the bottom and it looks fine

ShinyHappySchmooo Thu 13-Sep-07 15:01:14

Lou I submitted that tip to MN in order to enter a competition! grin (I did think it was my original idea however.. and that nobody else could be that sluttish! grin)

My bloke can iron. He's best at it when he's got the hump.. whips through a pile in a hour that would have taken me three and does an excellent job. I have worked it so that I piss him off just enough in advance that he does it..and fast.. but not so much that he won't do it at all!

Other than that.. my mum does it blush
