Philips Steam Through Sunday Challenge

By Gaming Daddy of Two

They say that ironing is the worst chore in the world, however, I’m not sure as I already take responsibility for quite a few horrible chores known to modern families (washing the pots, rubbish disposal, laundry, vacuuming, cooking).  When I do get time to iron it’s usually on a Sunday night just before the girls are due back at school.  I can honestly spend a good couple of hours wading through creased shirts and skirts in readiness for the forthcoming week.

TiredMummyofTwo received a gift this week, which I think was more intended for me, in the form of a Philips Steam Iron.  The SpeedCare claims to half the time spent doing your weekly iron so you can spend more time with the family.  Sounds like a bad idea if I’m being honest, as I do enjoy my quiet time on Sunday sat ironing and watching something interesting on telly, however, I then saw the upside of being able to get more gaming time on a Sunday night rather than ploughing through white polo shirts.  Only kidding! Of course it’s so I can spend more quality time with my wife and kids.

When I first saw the Philips SpeedCare iron, I was immediately drawn to the huge water tank, which is designed to be big so that you save time of refilling.  I really liked this idea as one bug bear when using a normal iron is constantly having to top up the water.  Also, I was really impressed to learn that the water is fed to the iron plate through a hose pipe, so there’s no longer any snag with my plug socket.  All in all the SpeedCare has it’s features that makes ironing a lot easier.

So with some free time on my hands this past Sunday, Elizabeth and I decided to visit EUREKA!, a children’s museum in Halifax town centre.  It’s a great place that I visited as a child with school and I’d also been there recently with my family.  Elizabeth had a great time with her Daddy playing in the mini Halifax bank and the M&S supermarket.  We also had some fun playing dentist in the ‘All About Me’ themed area.
