Ironing out the creases – or not

‘Board’

Yes, ‘board’ as in ironing board, not ‘bored’ as in ‘I’m bored’!

When The Daily Post asked “which household task do you least enjoy?”, I thought it would be great to link up and also have ‘board’ as my #Word of the Week with The Reading Residence..

You see, we do own an ironing board in our house but I can’t even say I enjoy ironing, never mind enjoy it the least… because I don’t even do ironing!  The irony…

There, I’ve said it.  Our clothes have creases!  Yes they’re not smooth but they’re clean and dry and they fit.  Hubby irons his work shirts, I iron my uniform for work (begrudgingly…) and that is as far as my ironing goes.  It’s not because I’m lazy – far from it – I’m very very busy and don’t see the point in stressing over a few creases.

No slaving over an ironing board for me thank you very much!

Neighbours

It’s quite apt that I write a post about neighbours, given that this morning I spoke to a friend on FaceTime while they holiday in Australia!

I absolutely loved the Aussie soap in its heyday. ‘Neighbours’ was on twice a day and I was one of the millions of viewers hooked. It fascinated me that they would just walk into each others’ houses, while we used to avoid going out of our house fullstop, for fear of being stopped by our neighbour for a matter. She ever stopped. Ever! A lonely old soul, she couldn’t drive and being rural, we were her only contact with the outside world (apart from her son who lived at home), sometimes for days in a row. The times our mum used to be hanging out washing and we would have to say the phone was ringing… Bad I know, but necessary to be able to get anything done.

It’s true that everybody needs good neighbours and if she needed anything of course we would have obliged, but sometimes our neighbours can eat into your time…

This post is for The Daily Prompt.
