Right now my best friends are aloe vera tissues, vicks vapour rub and fresh lemon, ginger and honey tea. This weekend is disappearing under a pile of snotty tissues, and I think the highlight may just be purchasing a new vaccuum, which I’m hoping to do later today. There’s a half price sale and my vacuum bit the dust (ha!) this week. Is it wrong to be actually, truly quite excited about a new cleaning appliance? Because I’m quite looking forward to it. We have hard floors, and we’re after a bagless wonder that suits the job. The research has been eye opening to say the least – there’s a whole world of super suckers out there and it’s a little bit baffling. I just want to get my floors clean… but remote control handles…. really?
