    I'm maybe an hour twice a week then a couple of hours both Saturday and Sunday. Using the oven is the shocker.. and also the washing machine and iron!

    what's an iron?

    I use those M&S 'none-iron' shirts for work, expensive but it's a one-time hit and no faffing about on a Sunday night with ironing boards and that. Washing machine use unavoidable until they invent clothes that clean themselves though

    I ironed a t-shirt a few months back but only because it was in a right state. I've actually got a really fancy iron with steam jets and all that malarky, had it decades, only has a couple of minutes of use in all that time. I know people who spend a couple of hours every week 'doing the ironing'. I'd rather shoot myself in the head.
