    I can't stand doing dishes - An to make it worse I have a dishwasher in my conservatory that I haven't been able to use in over a year because of the piping/waste pipe! :cry:

    i need to be in the mood for ironing and that way i can stand for hours doing it but if im not in the mood it takes me about an hour to iron one of colbys t-shirts cos i make an arse of it :lol:

    but worst of all is putting all the clothes away after spending hours ironing then having to put them all away i just hate it :evil:

    I think it depends what mood I am in.....I LOVE a clean tidy house and love tidying up with my music blaring out....(you wouldn't know it to look at the house at the mo :( ) but I think the only thing I HATE is ironing, but tbh, we don't do it in this household, only if it REALLY needs it.....I think the ironing board came out 2 times last year :oops:

    My thing is pegging out washing. God, it's tedious. Actually don't have a washing line because I hate it that much. I use the tumble dryer and airer for everything. OH is keen on us getting a whirly-gig for when the babies come. :(

    I have the best oven in the world. It has this setting on it to clean it where it heats up to mega temperature for a couple of hours and all you are left with is a little pile of ash that you wipe away. Bliss! :D

    Ironing? Not likely. OH does his own and we just iron as we go. It's amazing how many things don't really need to be ironed at all. :lol:

    i find if you use a tumble dryer then the clothes don't crease that much.

    I have had my oven 1 yr and not cleaned it yet! :lol: The grill was smoking tonight so i better do it tomorrow.

    MY TIP...... Put and oven dish in with water and vinager and put it in the oven on full heat til it is bubbling and steaming, the acid in the vinegar heats up and softens all the crap with the steam and it all wipes off! No hassle
