I heart my Roomba.

I only discovered them a couple of weeks ago and had to buy one immediately.

Honestly, it has done wonders for my mental health. I am currently in a bubble bath while it does the kitchen floor. When I go to bed Ill set it to work on the living room carpet.

Then in the morning,I can come down to nice clean house with minimal effort.

Will have to do it again tomorrow evening as I have 3 messy kids but no matter. They just need to invent one that does cooking and washing now!

Yes it's a robot Hoover. I don't know why everyone doesn't have one already!

I loved mine until I was constantly having to cut my hair out from the brush bar to avoid burning the motor out (again!).

Tis an absolute wonder for pet hair and short hair households, but unless you can be bothered with the faff of cleaning long hair out every time, expect a costly repair.

They are dear, but not as much as some top of the line dysons etc.
We got the basic £300 model it's absolutely fine.

I love my Roomba too - he is like one of the family.

I adore Bertha, and would replace her in a heart beat. With 2 hairy dogs and a toddler she is my bestest friend.

Dh hated her at first, and thought it was a complete waste of money, however since I am heavily pregnant with some minor complications he has taken over all the housework and has fallen for her charms too.

I did consider taking her on holiday when we borrowed a friends carvan for the weekend, but eventually decided that was a step too far!

Do beware if you have dogs though...

I knew you were gong to say Roomba grin

I wish I'd had one when heavily pg and then postnatally, as I was banned from hoovering for months due to diastasis recti. They'd be great for anyone who can't Hoover due to disability problems.
