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...
Very nice machine and clever work on piquing Miss 11's interest.ReplyDelete
Yes I never thought I could be so excited with a vacuum cleaner. I hope it lasts!Delete
Oh wow! I'm so jealous! Enjoy the cleaning enthusiasm bug while it lasts! xReplyDelete
Yes fingers crossed it lasts a while!Delete
I have a little bit of vacuum cleaner envy right now! My floors would thank me for a good suck and clean ;)ReplyDelete
yes mine have been very thankful for the attention as well. I actually had no idea they were in such dire need!Delete
ps i have to know where you bought it! did the steam mop come as part of the package?ReplyDelete
yep the mop was part of the deal, I actually got it off the TV, which is so unlike me, I am generally a hands on shopper, though I just couldn't face going to the shops on this one. I hated vacuum shopping 6 years ago when I got my last one and just couldn't do it again so this all worked out wellDelete
Ha ha! You sound exactly like me! Everything comes before cleaning (just about), but I got a bit excited about my new vacuum back in April! (You can read about it here if you're interested - http://blissamongstchaos.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/sunshine-and-lollipops.html) :)ReplyDelete
I've had a steam mop for a few years now, and I love it!! I will never again have the old spongey normal kind! Uh uh, not for me!!
Hmmm, don't know what happened with all of those spaces! lolDelete
One word: awesome.ReplyDelete
That is all :-)
I'll gladly volunteer my floor to you when you run out of floor to clean at your place. I'm generous like that.ReplyDelete
I love a bit of reverse psychology - and clean floors!ReplyDelete
Ooh la la very nice! I TOTALLY get excited by this stuff ;)ReplyDelete
