I got a huge spider earlier YUk. I may leave dh to empty the hoover bag
And a TON of glitter and sequins after a box full of the stuff tipped over and none of the dds were willing to use a dustpan and brush on to rescue it
It'll be a sparkly scary bag at emptying time

I got about three hair bobbles when i did it just now...

Spiders die in the hoovering process, i have been assured!!! grin

So far:

DD1 gold earrings
spiders (I then let the hoover on for 15m to make sure the poor thing is killed!blush)Ifyoudonolikeboden, It sounds very mean to hoover spiders but I have such a phobia of them there would be no way I would free them. To my defence I only hoover them when I am alone at home, when DH and DC are there, theyusually take them out of the house and free them.
Magnetix(makes a hell of a noise)

friend of mine hoovered up her hamster

dunno if it survived, they have a low mortality rate in her house. Bit odd.

I hoovered up my watch by mistake once, generally good at getting stray sox too

Lego, Lego and more Lego. I've taken to emptying the dyson every time I use it to make it easier to fish the blasted stuff out.

Bits of DS's stupid playmobile that he never plays with, just scatters around the playroom.

I was too lazy to pick them up and put them away blush

bumbling Fri 28-Aug-09 11:28:16

Ahem. Dried cat sick.

brimfull Fri 28-Aug-09 11:28:27

Hi Mme Lindt-thanks again for the cds-am listening to the chill atm .

BlueKangerooWonders Fri 28-Aug-09 11:29:55

long silk scarf yesterday - I looked like a 3rd rate magician trying to get it back out (pity I didn't think of turning the damn thing off!)

MmeLindt Fri 28-Aug-09 11:31:33

You are welcome. Glad you like them. Is this weekend the party?

SpawnChorus Fri 28-Aug-09 11:33:59

I hoovered up a mystery thing in my bedroom yesterday. It sounded quite chunky and important, but I couldn't be arsed to fish through the bag of dead spiders

brimfull Fri 28-Aug-09 11:41:50

MmeLindt-yes on sunday
Have just done a massive shop for it.

Not me, but a friend disposed of a pile of dog poo when house sitting.

BubbaAndBump Sat 29-Aug-09 08:30:11

What is this hoovering business you're all talking about? hmm
