My daughter in love and son are in the process of simplifying their lives and in the process discovered one of my long forgotten travel accessories.
This was perfect for a fussy character like me who could not afford to pay pressing charges in hotels during overseas tours due to severe restrictions on foreign exchange allowed to us those days. Drip dry shirts and polyester blend suits made it easy for washing and ironing one’s own clothes.
Much before that, during my school days, I had got into the habit of ironing my clothes and that habit has continues till today. I still iron my clothes and enjoy wearing crisply ironed ones every time I go out. I of course use a proper steam iron and an ironing board like this.
I however do not do too many items at a time as I find it difficult to stand for long. Just the two pieces that I will need for the day.
The discovery of the portable iron led me to reminisce about my travelling days as well as my obsession with ironed clothes AND another very impressive quote from a favourite actress.
I don’t think that I am spoiled. What do you think?
