The old was was half way in the dusbin when I came to my senses and realised that 'this isn't an old ironing board cover it's a new........' - and came to a halt, it's a new what?

    I think that's called scraping the barrel, Squeaks

    Erm - you could sit on it and use it as a sledge - even better when you slide down the sides of hills on the long grasses. I have done this using plastic bags, but metalised ironing board cover would be the height of luxury - ooooh, shouldn't this be on the 'it used to be posh' thread

    if you know any primary school or nursery school or playgroup staff, offer it to them as material for space costume, for the dressing up box or performances.

    you might also try cutting it up into sections and slotting it down behind your radiators, as insulation/reflector.
