Thankful Thursday - A brand new sucker

Yep you read right.  Today I am thankful for the brand new sucker that joined our family this week.

And by that I mean this


That is right ladies and gentlemen (yes I do have male readers, this is one of them) I am now the proud owner of a brand spanking new upright vacuum cleaner and steam mop.  And O.M.G, cleaning just went to a whole new level.

Now those of you who know me, or have even just stopped by here before, will know that cleaning and I are not exactly the best of friends.  In fact there is very little that doesn't come before cleaning.  Well at least that is the way it used to be.

Since these wonderful fangdangled machine entered our house at the start of the week the floors have been vacuumed and mopped more than what they have the entire six years of living here.  Ok maybe not quite but I am pretty sure it goes close.


The best part of all of this is that it is not just myself who is enamored with them.  I have had to battle with Miss 11 over whether I could have a turn.  Ok maybe I didn't put up as much of a fight as her and my requests may have just been a ploy to test her keenness, but either way she was not giving up control of the floor cleaners to anyone.

To say I am thankful for her sudden desire to ensure the floors are clean at all times is an understatement.  It feels more like a dream come true.  Oh how I hope it lasts and is not just a novelty due to the newness of it all.

Oh and in case you were wondering this was not a sponsored post, I really am just excited to own such a flash vacuum cleaner, perhaps I need to start getting out a bit more...
