my life as is

OMG serious – “My people perish for lack of knowledge” – Hosea 4:6 and serious. One of the chores I totally hate is vacuum cleaning OMG its a killer for me. It could be a number of reasons 1 – I have to drag this huge dust filled out dated hoover to do that 2- I have to be on the same spot to do it and 3 before we got married DH always used to do it and we sort of agreed that his thing so when he doesn’t I don’t and I only do it if I really have to.

So on my tea break I was reading my daily reads – other people`s blogs and this lady is going on and on about her irobot. What is that you may ask. It an automatic vacuum cleaner. It vacuum cleans everywhere on it on. The moment i read that part I started googling and came across this great review

“Okay, so the Roomba was designed to vacuum whilst you are out at work or off doing more interesting things. It fails at this – there is no way you’ll want to be out of the house when this little beauty is doing its thang! It’s far too much fun watching little “roombie” toddle about, working its way around your furniture and belongings and then wandering off into the next room. I think I would have paid £200 for that alone… however, the bonus prize is that Roomba is also a workaholic. As I type he’s just taken himself off into the bathroom to clean in there (good luck to him!).

If you’re thinking of buying a Roomba you probably have some questions and I’m guessing they’re similar to the questions I had:

1) Does it really vacuum?
– The short answer is yes, it really does. Perhaps if you’re the sort of person who regularly throws dirt about your home then this might not be for you – but for the rest of us who just have the normal everyday kind of stuff to vacuum up then it’s perfect. The suction might not be as great as with some of the heavy duty manual vacuums but the fact that Roomba goes over the same spot a few times in its journey means that so far it has cleaned everything I have asked it to.

2) How thorough is the cleaning?
– I’d say more thorough than you are I ever achieve with a manual vacuum. I’ve watched Roomba for quite some time and it uses a combination of diving across to the other side of the room, circular motions and following the edge of the room. So far I haven’t noticed it missing anywhere. My flat is in 2 halves, joined by a long corridor. I had thought this would confuse Roomba and I’d probably have to do one half one day then move it to the other half manually. No siree – Roomba works its way back and forth without any trouble whatsoever.

3) Does it get stuck?
– Roomba really knows how to get itself out of a jam! I have a lot of furniture in my flat and Roomba has worked its way in and out of all of it. In particular to get under my dining table and chairs Roomba only really has one or two routes (because of the way I have anything positioned) – every time it’s gone under there it has found its way back out again with very little problem.

4) What about cables and other things lying about?
– Every review I read prior to buying Roomba said I would need to move these out of the way. They were all wrong. Yes, cables are a tad confusing for Roomba and sometimes it takes a few seconds to work them out, but every time it has come across one it has managed to climb over it or get itself untangled again in a few seconds, without any intervention from me.

5) Does it damage furniture or knock things over?
– Nope. I see no damage to any of my furniture and despite watching Roomba hurtle into my floor-standing plant pots several times I’ve yet to see it knock any of them over.

Honestly, Roomba is great. I shall never vacuum again!”

That`s right. This is my next purchase and wow it’s not cheap either but im loving it already. It means no more dirty house geez my house can be dirty at times well most times really actually all the time . So with this baby I will finally have a clean house well not clean house per say but at least dust free carpet.


I got this a couple of weeks ago. Had always wanted one and when it was special offer I picked it up.

Thought it would be something nice and romatic to do with DH. So decided to make this

and turned out to be like this

First plate didn’t look so neat it was dry so the chocolate was running but second plate looks divine man. I totally loved it. And enjoyed them. DH did take some or was it one not sure he clearly didn’t like them wierd who doesn’t like chocolate and strawberries later on chocolate strawberries. yep its one of those things I love and to him they are just passing by.

They totally made my Sunday taking another one on my way to bed.
