I sympathise heartily.

I have lost a chuck of henry's tube, so have to bend at 90 degree angle to Hoover. Tis a pita

Really! How did you manage that? Unplug it, then start taking it apart with a screwdriver. BLoody funny thread title.

it's stuck completely.
i've taken apart all the pieces but the stuck bit is in the bendy tube.
it's a henry too.

hmm

could you cut the blind chord then sort out the blinds later?

i decided it would be quicker hmm to run the hoover along the window sill than use a duster and the whole thing shot up the hoover before i could stop it.

it's a rented house (not our blinds) and the removals men left an hour ago with everything but the hoover, some cushions and my laptop.
i do have scissors, a screwdriver, some rollerblades and lots of tiny pieces of lego.

It's the best place for it.
That'll learn you for doing housework at this ungodly hour.

fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuccckkk.

scuse me.

Ah, so between us we may have a functioning Henry!

all is well again. i performed a procedure similar to a laparotomy i once observed. i squeezed the tube until i could find the blockage (the big sort of tag on the end of the cord) then sort of manipulated it very carefully as it was jammed tight and nearly making a hole in the tube.
it turned
it came out
i am victorious.

and i awarded myself a nap.

thanks smile
