Hugh’s Photo Challenge: Week 6 – Unused.

Hugh's photo challengeHugh Roberts on Hugh’s views and news asks us to post a picture of something that is unused, for this new photo challenge, hosted by him.

So, here is my offering.  I can only wish that I didn’t need to use this. Ironing is not up there on my list of favourite things to do.

I try to use the time spent doing this somewhat pointless job (because you iron it, hang it in the wardrobe and then have to iron it again) thinking about ideas for writing. It does help and I find that I just break off a second to jot down some ideas . An hour later I finish jotting down the ideas and the ironing remains in the basket… still creased. The will to iron lost , if even it existed in the first place, the iron is returned to its home and that is that.

Why can’t we all wear creased clothes? Sorry, that is an insult to those wonderfully talented people who design such amazing items for us to wear. Why can’t clothes coming ready ironed?

I think I’m going to put everything in the wardrobe now and iron it as we need it. No, that won’t work, we’ll look like a couple of tramps. It’s back to the damn iron then!

Thanks to Hugh for organising this interesting challenge and I may be back for more. I look forward to seeing what other folk come up with.

Until the next time.

  1. I know what you mean about ironing, Dorne. If man has walked on the moon and sent a spacecraft to Pluto then why has nobody invented a gadget where you can put clothes and they come out ironed?

    In defence of ironing though, I have had some great ideas for some of my short stories when I’ve been ironing my socks.

    Thanks for participating in my photo challenge. It was great to see you have some fun with it. 🙂

  2. I do iron Mr Whale’s underpants. Not mine though, because they are so small!! LOL! Yeah, right! I’ve never, ever ironed socks…life is too short. Besides, I only ever get one out of the washing machine. But that’s another story and maybe even a post.
    Thanks Hugh, you have inspired me again. I’m easily inspired. xx

  3. i admit I have an iron – even an ironing board – However, I honestly can’t remember when I last used them, maybe 2 years or more ago, and that would have only been to iron 1 thing – once!. Everything I own is in iron-free material. 🙂

    • Now that is a great idea and I’m trying to buy more and more iron-free clothes. They’re brilliant when you go away and at home.
      I’ll admit to owning a rather expensive ironing board, with a pretty cover. It’s supposed to encourage me. Life’s too short, isn’t it?
      Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to comment. It’s good to meet you. x

      • I agree that life is much too short of ironing, and dusting and a whole range of other boring (sometime) necessities. 🙂


  4. LOL, I can so relate! I don’t buy anything anymore if it needs ironing…such a nasty chore but it sure makes a man’s shirt nice and crisp and tidy.
