I thought I loved you...

I thought I loved you.

I loved the way you made me feel. But it wasn't all smooth sailing. You were hard work sometimes. As time went on, having you in my life became more and more of a chore and less of a joy.

I began to doubt my love for you.

I decided to put some space between us, just to see if I could do without you, to see what effect your absence would have on me. I realised that I don't really love you.

There, I said it. I don't love you, but I need you. I can't do without you in my life. And so I have made a choice to do the work, because the end result is worth it all.

The end result is worth it. I've said it before. I can't bear wearing un-ironed clothes.

So back to the ironing board I go. What did you think I was talking about?

  4. Have to agree with Sophie - I now buy clothes (well, try to) that do not require ironing. I get my iron out perhaps every 2 months when I need more variety in my work wear and my shirts that were worn months ago need to be pressed. Is the feeling of ironed clothes similar to the love of freshly washed good quality sheets?!?!
    This post gave me a great giggle :)

    1. I don't know if the feeling is any different, Lou, it's mainly the appearance. I need it to be smooth!

  6. Hahaha! I hate ironing. When I was living by myself I did not have an iron board and bought only clothes that doesn't need ironing! Now, with hubby and his job, I'm back at the iron board ironing mainly the worst thing ever: shirts...

  7. My daughter asked me what that big thing in the cupboard was when I got my ironing board out 2 years ago to iron a shirt before a wedding. I haven't seen it since. Meh, pressed clothes are boring, didn't you know the wrinkle/I've just slept in my clothes look is SO in (well that's what I tell myself) Emily

  8. LOL! Hilarious! I avoid ironing at all costs. If I'm feeling "generous" Hubby gets his business shirts ironed otherwise he does it himself.
    Hate it with a passion!

  11. Ha!! The ironing board and I are old enemies. Hate it. Avoid at all costs!!! My husband does his own work shirts because, well, he should anyway, but also because, frankly, that shizz is HARD!! All those fiddly creases AMD cuffs....gahhhh...

  12. I've neglected this particular relationship for many years now! Luckily I work (if and when I work) from home, so no office wear required and Husband does his own ironing. I suspect my husband's relationship with the iron might be a bit more like yours though!

  13. Ha ha! You had me going there!
    Here I was thinking I was reading a love letter, lol.
    I definitely don't have a love affair with my iron. I will avoid at all costs!! :)
