The Mhinisteir was needing a new trouser press and so we bought one from John Lewis. Our new Corby Trouser Press was delivered to us just after the new year. As we opened the box that contained the new trouser press, I commented to the Mhinisteir that a Millenial will probably not know what a trouser press is!!! In the olden days, good hotels always had a trouser press but these days they are almost extinct.
The trouser press required simple assembly before we could start using it. The Mhinisteir is not good with his hands at all so he struggled to assemble the trouser press and decided that he will assemble it at a later date!
I on the other hand am good with my hands but the Mhinisteir wasn’t allowing me to assemble it as he was afraid that I might tire myself given my health condition.
Anyway, one week had past and the trouser press was still in our dining room waiting to be assembled. I was getting impatient and decided to take matters into my own hands. Yesterday was an exceptionally busy day for the Mhinisteir and because he was out the whole day, I managed to assemble the trouser press! I was pretty chuffed with myself even though I needed a lie down after that!!!
Now, the Mhinisteir can finally start using his new trouser press.
