When I was single and working, I think I only ironed when I needed to. Not sure what I did with my sheets. How odd, I can’t remember anymore. Has it been that long ago?
But now that I’m married and have my own little family. I like to iron all the beddings and linen and most of little T’s clothes. I once mentioned on a past post that I iron our beddings and one of my blogger friends (you know who you are ;)) seemed surprised, or even shocked that I actually iron them. I’m wondering am I the only one who does it now?
Is ironing becoming a thing of the past? Is ironing considered retro?
You see, one of my small joys, is having clean, crisp and not a-single-crease-seen on our newly changed bedlinen not only on ours, but also on little T’s bed. It gives me utmost pleasure and satisfaction that our beds are all looking perfect, at least my idea of perfect. Oh dear, does that sound really sad? To each their own I guess. I like to focus on the little things that make me happy and newly ironed sheets happen to be one of them.
And I’m a bit embarrassed to admit, that I do like this chore. I don’t find it tedious like some may do. It’s also best done while watching “Escape to the Country”, most times though I like to watch the news. It’s the only time I can watch it without being interrupted by T.
What about you? Do you iron your sheets and clothes?
What is the chore you detest the most?
Or what are your small joys?
