Ironing to me means the most boring way to spend an afternoon or evening and quite frankly I would rather watch paint dry!
I’ve a self professed loathing of ironing which results in me sending what few bits I need doing to the local ironing shop. I’ve been laughed at for doing that but I hate it that much.
It wasn’t always the case, when I first moved in with Paul I duly ironed because I was 25 and playing house for the first time. Well the novelty soon wore off!
So, if I hate ironing so much why am I writing about it? I’ll start from the beginning.
It started with an email from Mumsnet saying Tefal were searching for 12-15 bloggers to join an exclusive Innovation Panel. Reading through the email it sounded fun and exciting so I applied, crossed my fingers and waited.
Upon return from Butlins I received an email saying I had been chosen *cue happy dance*
I was supposed to go to Windsor to meet the team and see some of the products in use however as you know Emmy and Harry have been poorly so I couldn’t go. This was very sad however it’s in the job description of Mum.
I’ve been assured the day was wonderful. I will be doing a Google hangout next week instead with the Tefal team to see the products in action and to learn more about Fresh Week! I will have more on that coming very soon.
Imagine my surprise when the day after the event a delivery arrived contain a Tefal Actifry and a Pro Express Iron (gifts from Tefal).
Both were eagerly unboxed and played with which brings me back to ironing……I hate and loathe to say it even but…..I’ve a new found love of ironing.
I honestly never ever thought that would happen but I’m now actively seeking for things to iron. The right tools do make the world of difference.
This is like having a top of the range car, it’s easy to manoveer, quiet and handles well – I never thought I would choose to iron however I keep running around the house trying to find more things to iron.
Thanks Tefal for having me on the panel!
