    Hey, why did you choose 12 women? I’m a man, with a partner who hates ironing, so I CHOOSE to do it all. I actually find it therapeutic as – unlike my ‘proper’ job, I get to see results, daydream and, if I so choose, catch up on all my recordings on Sky + or the BBCi Player. Oh, and for anyone wondering if I’m any good at it, my partner’s 2 best (female) friends have started using my services. I honestly think I may start some sort of Ironing Agency for those who have more PRESSING things to do!!

      Andy! It is great to hear from you. I ransacked my address book, if only I had known! Can I add you in? What is your ‘proper’ job ?

    Hi Miranda,
    Yes you can add me to your list. You can even send me some ironing to do whilst I catch up on some more Sky +!!
    My proper job is extremely dull (which probably why I use ironing to recharge my batteries!), undertaking office work in an NHS hospital. This entails lots and lots of never ending paperwork, whereas – as mentioned previously – with ironing, at least you get to see the completion of one’s work! I’m sure some psychologist somewhere could explain it all in more depth…

    I don’t iron. End of.
    Just think of all the books I’ve written in the time I might have been ironing!

    I iron… badly. Sometimes I pay Helen’s Auntie Ange and she does it brilliantly but I have to go and get it. Our accountant’s wife sadly died and, like me, is a fairly dodgy housewife. If he asks Auntie Ange to do it his sons kick up if it isn’t back and his daughter likes to wear her shirts unironed. He has a system of leaving the ironing on the board in the room between the front door and the office so his office ladies do it.
