Addictive personality, moi? Well maybe a tad, so everyone keeps telling me, when it comes to my fascination and desire for those fabulous inventions called…VACUUM CLEANERS!
I absolutely laughed my head off on Sunday when this picture pinged through to my phone with the caption “It’s them or us!”
Let me explain: I had just taken possession and was positively drooling at the thought of opening the box and setting off with the Dyson DC44, the one most vitally needed of James Dyson’s inventions that was missing from my stash. With root cyclone technology, Dyson’s digital motor V2, 20 minutes of cordless run time plus a boost mode, 2.3 kg in my hand. “Want want want, need need need” were on repeat in my head at the mere thought of it all.
Would I like to test-drive it prior to the TSV on Thursday? Those words were barely out in the air before I feverishly snatched it (as much as one can snatch a large box!) out of Paul’s hands. I was utterly thrilled, as I had wanted one so much and tried to explain to Dan unsuccessfully that we NEEDED it. Here was my chance, the divine moment to prove it to him!
As I was working over the weekend, they took it upon themselves to open that box and use it…BEFORE me! Oh my goodness Joe, you are treading on thin ground my son!
What can I tell you that hasn’t already been so ably demonstrated on QVC? It truly is a magnificent mini beast! The edges on my stair carpet which collect muck constantly…simple nozzle on and muck was sucked into the DC44. My new drawers in my new wardrobes (six weeks in and STILL not finished…more to come later!) sawdust, dusty bits, delicately and again in a flash, gone, AND I can see in my Perspex barrel all the dust, it’s weird I know, but I love seeing that!
He then saw the genius of all the heads included in our TSV package and he was off – toys, shelves, floors…he was addicted too, like mother like son!
She has no plug point out there, you see, and with all the different heads Joe got in all the nooks and crannies….so much better and easier than a dustpan and brush!
Three and a half hour charge meant loads of cleaning was achieved.
So much so that when I went to do the boot of my car the battery was ready to recharge. Now, even if you have you have a face like this….you still get a boot like this!
No problems as our TSV has a special wowie car charger as a sooper dooper part of our package. I’m so happy with that, as when I wanna clean, I wanna clean!
Also, maybe it’s just me, but I don’t have time to clean the car at home. It’s always when I’m out, picking up the children from here there and everywhere, that I want to do it – a five-minute window to whip out the Dyson and clean up our filth in the car is five minutes well used, I say!
If you have the same addiction as me, stand up, proclaim it and be counted!
DC44 you are SPECTACULAR!
Claire, with love xxxx
