Seriously I can't remember when I last tackled my ironing basket.
And therefore this is what it looks like
Yes I know it's huge. And yes I know the clothes are crumpled and it will take me twice as long.
I'm not someone who is fussy about what gets ironed either. I don't iron sheets, well just the fold over bit, nor slot of tshirts, unless really crumpled, and definitely not boxer shorts or pjs!!!
So how has it got to this stage??I'm spoilt!!! Not generally, just when it comes to help. My MIL used to come one day a week to look after the girls whilst I worked And most days she would do a fair bit of the ironing.
But she we os for 5 weeks towards the end of my pregnancy and I couldn't stand and iron at that stage so it just piled up.
So I'm giving myself a challenge:
1 week to empty the basket. Starting today, iron everyday if I have to, at least 15 items each time.
I'll let you know next thursday how I've gone. Or earlier!!!
Now I don't want to hear how you iron off the line lol. That's my SIL and MIL and I'm not them. But I do have to come up with a better system so that it doesn't pile up. And ideas? Perhaps twice a week, designated times to doing it. On the calendar so then it's part of my routine. What do you do???
