For example I bought a spray mop in the black Friday sales and I was so excited for it to arrive that I used it as soon as it was delivered on Saturday morning. Just used it again this morning and it brings me so much joy I don't know why grin

Getting an early night for no reason other than I want to.

My lovely Henry vacuum. Always had very cheap ones, last one was ancient and the house needed to be mended with black tape every other time it was used, which was not often. Henry is so easy. He just works. And the cable is so long I dont need an extension cable.

My Shark’s amazing. It bends in places I could only ever wish too!

I recently had a day off work and was so happy to give the house a good clean as both kids were in childcare. I never had such feelings towards cleaning before kids

Having a cleaner come once a fortnight!
My spray mop (with you there op!)
My Dyson v8 animal hoover. After carting Hetty up and down numerous stairs for 9 years it changed my life!

When you make a great cup of tea and manage to drink it at exactly the right temperature. I have been known to tell people about this moment way after the event...

Waking back into rooms I have tidied and hoovered. I surprise myself with how nice it all looks!

Myshitisreal Mon 02-Dec-19 13:43:31

We've bought a new magic hoover which is charging. It's exciting 😁😁😁

Practising the church organ, especially loudly when nobody else is around - very satisfying. Doing it in the middle of the night in a deserted church, with all the lights off except the little one on my music stand - bliss!

The bloody shark hoover 💕

One of those motor window cleaners I borrowed from my boss and still haven’t bought one whyyyy

I bought a Vsc eindow hoover thingy for condensation.
I'm obsessed. Nowhere is safe from me.

Vac, window blush

Definitely a slightly unhealthy hoover dynamic here 😂

I got new cutlery last week to replace the two half-missing mismatched sets we had before. Everything matches and is nice and shiny now. It's a delight to open the cutlery drawer and look at it. grin

I also spent longer than I care to admit finding the right set for us (nice handles, stainless steel, no plastic handles, not too plain but not too decorated either, good weight but not too heavy, and including matching soup spoons without costing us a fortune, didn't realise I was going to be so picky over cutlery.)

@BuzzShitbagBobbly tea is life!

Kitchen remodelling. Addicted to youtube makeovers and Pinterest. Saving up to do the kitchen is at least 2 years away blush have done it once already in different house. It was so much fun from start to finish I actually scared myself a bit..

Making a big mess in the kitchen when batch cooking or entertaining.
Then cleaning it all up .

I appreciate the cutlery thing, parade. Not finding enough of the same set at dinner is a thing in our house. I think I want to look at your cutlery drawer too, tbh.

Mine is fancy tea towels and nice fabric.

My teenage daughter once claimed I shoved her out of the way very rudely while talking to her in a gift shop when a particularly nice design distracted me. "Oooh...pretty...."

I denied it but it's true. I did. It was visceral.
