When he started work in his early 20s a suit and tie were required and he liked his shirts to look clean and crisp so took up ironing. I got him at about 30 and we did a deal - he could watch sport on TV if he did the ironing instead of just sitting there. Done - so I taught him how to iron properly and he did my work blouses too. I wash, he irons. I cook so he does dishes.
We wear a lot of natural fibres and like ironed sheets so he's just carried on. Sky+ means endless sport to watch. Since he chose it, he also gets to wield the bloody Dyson. I dust and also wash floors.
Feeling antsy now. Too hot to do owt but too much energy to do nowt.
