Weekly Blog No 1 – The Ironing Basket


Having a cancer can prevent you from doing simple mundane tasks, however this could be considered as a blessing in some cases. My pile of ironing has been building up for several weeks now and it never seems to deplete itself. Ironing can be therapeutic at times and I’m not sure really why, it is the depletion of your pile of ironing, the creation of nicely ironed clothes or an empty basket. The Brits love to iron with ironing services being offered everywhere, however Canadians are all about the tumble dryer. I have to admit I am now a combination of both so if I can avoid doing certain things then I will. This ironing basket may take me 3 – 4 attempts this week but my goal is to complete the task in hand.

    zebrakat, nice blog design. Keep it up! I handle ironing easily because I retired 3 years ago. Nothing that I wear daily needs ironing!


  2. You have brought me back to my childhood with this post. Though American, I remember in the very early 1960s at about 6 or 7 years old, my job was to iron my father’s handkerchiefs and the family’s pillowcases. I ironed my sister, Sonja’s dresses. She was born in 1962. And then the other two girls’ dresses, as well. (1966 and 1969 birth years). I ironed when I was military from 1973 to 1989. I even ironed as late as 2012. Since diagnosis two years ago, I’ve said “F*** it!” If it’s wrinkled and won’t come out through tumbling in the dryer…I don’t wear it if I care that it’s wrinkled. laughs
