My Vacuum Cleaner Sux

Happy Christmas!

I don't know about you, but I've heard many women complain about receiving Christmas gifts that are useful, practical and/or housework related.

My Beloved gave me the gift of clear sinuses for Christmas, Bless his little cotton socks. And I couldn't have asked for anything better.

A new Dyson vacuum cleaner, wrapped in newsprint with a red shiny bow was under the Christmas tree this morning.

I've been borrowing Mum's because I was having some real trouble with my nose/throat, and it largely disappeared after a couple of months of vacuuming with a machine that actually removed dust from the bedroom carpet.

This was a small design fault in our last vacuum cleaner. The manufacturers may wish to look into it, as funnily enough, we purchased the machine with the expressed intention of removing the dust and dog fur from the floors. I feel better spending time vacuuming when I can see a difference where I've been working.

I hope you all have had a lovely day to celebrate Christmas in whatever form your tradition dictates.

And the chance that vacuuming occurred at our place on Christmas Day?

... OF COURSE NOT. (but I can't say I didn't read the manual and assemble it)

I think that's an excellent gift.

Givinya De Elba said...

Wonderful! I know how much you would have appreciated it!

Oh yay - that's a totally FAB present! Which model did you get?

It's a DC29 Multifloor. Which means it comes without a whole heap of extras, but can do both carpet and timber. (and apparently was on a super-Santa-special, meaning that the budget did very nicely with the purchase)

If it didn't come with it, I highly recommend a turbo head. Noisy, but highly effective.

Your hubby gave you a vacuum cleaner as a Christmas present? That’s so sweet of him! ;) Well, as a housewife, it’s really common for me to receive something that would definitely be useful in the house. Actually, my eldest son bought me a new washing machine! Hehe.
