Casting away . . .

In 1987, Sue Lawley chose an ironing board as her luxury item on Desert Island Discs.

Let me be clear.  I like Sue Lawley’s work.  But, I’ve never understood her choice here.  The thought of ironing, even on an idyllic island, fills me with dread.  I can always find much better ways to spend my days (desert island or not).

But who am I to judge?  My own luxury item would have to be a choice between a dishwasher (I know, I know) or Radio 4 – I think R4 would probably win.

Oh well . . . it just goes to show . . .
