Harry is very good in the house & can tackle pretty much anything quite easily but the one thing he isn't at all familiar with is ironing!

He got the ironing board out homself this morning to iron three of his shirts.
I ignored him as it's good to practice plus I was changing beds.
He didn't do a bad job of it but he didn't press hard enough just sort of wafted the iron about.
I finished it off & showed him how to do it properly!

He has no idea I took this photo!

Three good things:
1. A hospital visit.
2. I was shown around the new neighbours house tonight. Just gorgeous! Can't think I used to feed calves in that draughty place & now it is a superb top of the range four bedroom house.
3. They have started checking the 125,000 bulbs on Blackpool Tower for the illuminations!
Domesticated indeed. You might want to hang on to him!!! ;)

Background nice and neat - good for you as you wouldn't have much time to get a good photo! I failed at ironing so can't teach anyone!

Good on him. Good action shot and nice his blue shirts matched the (very tidy) kitchen colours

When Anthony was here he rearranged my kitchen, the microwave used to be there on the left hand side, I do think it looks better & yes it was a quick unplanned photo so must luck it was tidy!

A great candid shot with the light streaming in from behind. Good for Harry for giving ironing a go - Bruce doesn't even know where the iron or ironing boards are!

You went wrong showing him how to do it. I say practice makes perfect.

Great candid shot!

Tell him he's a natural!

Look at him go! Great job!
August 10th, 2017  
Good for him, and good for you! Smile.

Looks like he's really working at it

You've got to love a handy man.

@chris17 Ha ha Christine you are right of course but I couldn't go out with him in a shirt that hadn't had the seams pressed! He knows now!!

Great pic! Can I rent Harry?! ;-)

He should have been in the RAF. One of the first things they teach when you join the forces is how to sew and how to iron. Next comes how to polish shoes.

that's what I like to see. My husband wouldnt even know how to put up the ironing board
August 10th, 2017  
Haha. Now you have evidence to prove that he can do it. Since you gave him a few pointers maybe he can do that from now on
August 10th, 2017  
A super candid capture. Mine wouldn't have a clue!!

@stimuloog ha ha Marlos, he hasn't time, too busy here!
August 10th, 2017  
Missed this... good on Harry hope for Farner George yet ... It must be amazing to see the conversion of your calf shed...
August 10th, 2017  
You have got Harry trained well Pat , my husband would not know where to find the iron
August 15th, 2017
