I'm a domestic goddess now

Wife's at work (where all good wives should be while husbands are enjoying the bank holiday in peace). So I decided to do some housework.
I roasted the chicken (carves easier when cold).
Peeled vegetables.
Vacuumed.
Washed floors.
Then decided to tackle the ironing.
It's not difficult, what's all the fuss about?
Shirts= easy.
Trousers= easy.
Underwear= easy.
Socks= easy.
I even managed to get some razor sharp creases in the wife's jeans, which she's never had before! Cheesy
The only difficulty I encountered was the fitted sheet. I solved that problem though - I fitted it to the bed, then ironed it in situ.
She'll be chuffed when she gets in.... Wink

that was always my favourite trick when forced to do the ironing for other people, strangely they didn't ask too often  Grin

Fool... now she's going to expect that virtually every week! You've shot yourself right in the leg - repeatedly.
I mean come on.. you could have done a few things badly.. just so she can see the effort but doesn't expect you to try again  Cheesy

I used to put creases in my jeans until a good friend put me right.

Re: I'm a domestic goddess now

I can still picture my mate turning up for work in the jeans he ironed.
Lovely creases except they were on the sides.

Re: I'm a domestic goddess now

Indeed... I'm only good at two things: Washing up and BBQ'ing. I am terrible at all other forms of cooking and housework.
Shame that..
