Philips Steam Through Sunday ChallengeAugust 19, 2014
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.
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.
