Another year...

Happy new year everyone. Hope you all had a lovely holiday season.

Ours was nice and quiet - a good thing after Christmas 2007's busy one with all my family here (way too hectic for me). New year's was pretty quiet too - I had to work at 7am new year's day.

I received some lovely pressies too - one big surprise from J and Chickie was a robot vacuum cleaner - a Roomba (looks like the third generation one shown in the link there). Normally I am not the person to appreciate whitegoods or household items as personal gifts. This however is like the best thing evah!! It cleans the floors - without me doing a thing (I don't even have to press the button since J and Chickie will be setting it off when they leave in the morning. So I can come home to a nice clean floor!

An added benefit is that all Lego has to be off the floor before they leave (cos it won't care what it picks up!). So not only do I get clean floors but I get Lego-less floors - bonus!

Happy New Year to you! Do tell about how the Roomba does. I knew a cafe owner who swore by them but I can't quite imagine it. They'd be the greatest thing even if you have to vacuum by hand once in a while. I hate that chore and would love to find a way around it!

Mine is called Mrs Doubtfire.

I love her more than life itself.

Happy New Year Caramaena and family.

I would really like one of those Roombas. Especially if they come with the added bonus of a lego-less floor

Nothing like treading on a Lego in the middle of the night with bare feet!!!
