Constant Reshaping

I don’t do the ironing, very often

But when I do, I find myself

Wondering: Why.


The men of the world don’t

Club together and decide to wear

Something else.


Something less high maintenance

It’s not like anyone is going to judge them or

Pay them less


Based on dress.

That would be stupid, a bit like a garment

That needed

Constant reshaping.


I can only assume that the ones high up

Who might reassess the code for work

Have wives

To do their work instead.


(NB: I don’t iron much because my lovely husband appreciates that none of my clothing needs ironing, for which I am thankful ;-p )

I am an NCTJ qualified journalist and copywriter with a year’s worth of experience as a local hack, and just under two years’ of experience working in the marketing department for a highstreet retailer. I currently work at Cycling Weekly, previous to this I was the editor at Total Women's Cycling. I do a little freelance writing alongside my job, and have written for Runner’s World, Triathlete’s World, Sussex Sport, Basingstoke Gazette newspaper, the Brighton Argus, Steve Hart Photography and 2LK Design. I blog to record the activities in my life which I don’t want to forget when I’m old and wrinkly (let’s hope the internet never melts down – but it seems safer than a notebook) – to let old friends and family know what I’m up to, and because I enjoy playing with words. I’m always looking for new projects – and you can email me should you ever need someone with an energetic passion for word doodling.
