Are there any household chores you secretly enjoy? Which ones — and why?

I love to wipe down the TV, laptop,Ipad,Iphone screens to get the best picture possible. I then stick on a 1080 or 4k video on thanks to PN Fibre = Heaven  Cheesy

Re: Are there any household chores you secretly enjoy? Which ones — and why?

Been doing my own washing and ironing for over 60 years... used to use a big tub to soak my clothes in before washing them all by hand, and then doing the ironing afterwards, never really bothered me,... quite like it when I have a row of coathangers with nicely ironed  shirts and trousers...
especially as in recent years I have graduated to an automatic washing machine, and a tumble drier......  Cheesy

I don’t mind mowing the lawns. I usually put in my earphones from my phone and drift off either listening to music or to Test Match Special when its on
Quite like sorting out the chickens as it gives me the chance to have a sensible conversation!

I used to like doing the ironing particularly long-sleeved shirts. I think that started back in the 70's when pleats were all the rage. I think there's something to be said in getting a shirt ironed properly - quite satisfying.
I also like washing up but not drying and putting away.

I love cooking, cleaning, washing, ironing and all of it. I could sit and watch the Wife doing it all day  Grin

I could also say I absolutely love ironing.
But that would be irony.

I enjoy cleaning out roof gutters. It is peaceful when you are 20 ft up a ladder and she dare not stand below you.
