The first thing I'm going to do when I get back is

... buy a Hoover.

Well, perhaps not the first thing, but pretty soon afterwards.

Younger Son asked, 'Why are you cleaning before you go on holiday?'
'Because I want to leave it as I want to find it when I get back.'
Younger Son gave me a John 'you cannot be serious' McEnroe look.
It's worth a try.

He'll have a good excuse, although I'm not telling him. The Hoover is working to rule, but whose rule I'm not sure. It gathers debris - mostly George hair - from the carpet, rolls it up and spits it out. It makes it easier to gather by hand - or mouth if George gets there first - but doesn't leave an entirely satisfactory finish to the carpet.

When in M&S this week I thought I'd try on a (comparatively) cheap bra. I know my size and M&S is renowned for its underwear. But now I know why I have to buy expensive bras: as Husband would say, my dumplings were well and truly boiling over.

A good Hoover is vital when there's animal hair involved. Fair play to George, he does try to clean up!

Cheap bras are a no-no. Mine are M&S and not exactly sexy, but I need them. "Dumplings" doesn't begin to describe the situation!

My hoover behaves like that, too!

My hoover did too!!!

Buy a new one, you won't regret it ;-)
