Magic Carpet Reasons 2B Cheerful

I had the carpet cleaned for the first time in 10 years. My carpet is a large area rug in the living room so it gets a lot of foot traffic. DD eats at the coffee table sometimes while watching a DVD or playing. There have been spills of all sorts over the years and a hoovering once a week just doesn't do it. Added to that my old dinosaur of a hoover was suffering from all the ailments of old age (and maybe even dementia).

Having cleaned the carpet I was then treated to a new vacuum cleaner for my Hanukka present from my mum. I know that sounds a bit sad but seriously, it's what I wanted and needed. I chose a slim light-weight cleaner that stores away neatly in a cupboard and can be moved around easily. And the machine bit lifts off to become a hand-held vacuum for going over furniture. The accessories all fit into their own tote bag. I'm psyched.

So while you're spritzing on your new perfume, luxuriating in your new sexy underwear, showing off your new expensive jewellery, relaxing in your sumptuous bath oils and salts, or enjoying any of your fabulous Christmas presents from your loved ones; think of me and my brand new vacuum cleaner. I'll be zipping around the apartment zapping the dust with great gusto.

It's got red, shiny bits. :~)

Disclaimer: I was gifted this vacuum cleaner by my mum who has no connection whatsoever with the company who manufactured it or the shop that sold it to us at the same discount offered to all January shoppers.

I'm linking up with R2BC which is back at Mich's blog - Mummy from the Heart.

  1. I get this totally and intend to never have carpets at some lovely point in the future as total muck gatherers. I like GTech and am saving up for one. I love the humour in this post - made me smile a lot.

    1. Some of my friends have a robot vacuum that goes around on its own and vacuums the whole apartment while they're out - tiled floors and carpets. It's very expensive though.

    1. These presents are more life-changing than fancy bath salts. I wish you well to use your new dishwasher. xxx

  4. I must google this Gtech hoover and see what it looks like. I've never heard of Gtech although I have a Vtech phone.

  5. Guess who else is dreaming of a new vacuum cleaner? Yep, that would be me, and I have a Christmas voucher that is burning a hole in my pocket... I may even ask you for details of the make and model as it sounds exactly what I am looking for too xx

    1. When I've used it i'll let you know. We bought it because it was the cheapest of the light-weight hoovers with attachments.

  6. This comment is not directed at the blog entry. I am sending thoughts your way because of the "murder" of the soldiers in Jerusalem. I am so sorry that your country/people continue to have such violence directed towards them.

    1. Gosh, thank you Myra. I really appreciate your kind words. The Promenade where it happened is 10 minutes walk from my home. It's part of a big beautiful park but I never go there because I don't feel safe there. It's so sad. Four beautiful young people and others still fighting for their lives. Thank you again xxx

    2. Also thought of you two when I heard the news - then heard that it was a group of soldiers that had been attacked. So sad and so frightening - especially as it was so close to your home. Stay safe!

    3. Thanks Margie. That's why I didn't do that, 'We're safe' message on facebook because it was soldiers. Unfortunately here, every 19 - 21 year old is a soldier and we all have loved ones on the army. xxx
