Five minutes walk from Fruit Towers, just past Buchanan's (our nearest sandwich shop), is an ironing shop. It's got nice bunting outside (we like bunting) and a big sign in the window saying ironing. I went to investigate today and found it did just what it says on the tin, or window. There was a nice lady inside with an iron, an ironing board and lots of piles of ironing. It smelt of that nice warm fresh washing smell, like when you were home sick from school and your mum was doing the ironing.
The lady told me it was £1.25 a shirt. You bring it, she irons it, you pick it up and pay for it. Simple as that. She’s definitely keeping her main thing her main thing. No wi-fi or free broadband while you wait. Just ironing.
I’m going to take in the shirts I never wear because I could never be bothered to iron them later this week. I’ll let you know how they come out.
