Mig: "William vil du være sød at hjælpe mig med at dække bordet?"....
William: "Hmm..nej, det vil jeg egentlig ikke lige nu".
Mig: "Nå men jeg har ellers hørt at vi får besøg af både en abe og en kænguru til middag...Og du er jo SÅ god til at lave et fint fest bord.."....Jeg kan se at der tændes et lys i hans øjne og fantasien får frit løb...og vupti begynder han at sætte tallerkener osv frem på bordet... #livingwithkids#play#chores#imagination#motherhood#consciousparenting#itsakindofmagic
An audience with the High Comissioner Mr. O. London. On this occasion; less poetry; more storytelling at the T&T High Commission in London speaking briefly on my yet untitled new collection of tiny-artworks based on the easily forgotten micro-moments that make pre-adolescent rural Tobago life, so sweetly serene.

I certainly feel Fridayish today. I've had the day off, cleaned the house, done the laundry, cleaned my make up brushes and am now sitting down to read my book and have a cup of tea #productiveday#getshitdone
Ok so here's my opinion of the Shark Rocket True Pet.... it's flipping awsome!
To be honest I was dubious when I first used it, sure the suction is amazing and even after I had vacuumed with my Vax and followed after with my Shark the amount of dust it collected was rather shocking! But it still seemed heavier when pushing than my upright and the fact it's corded means it isn't as easy to press and go liked I hoped BUT now I'm a bit more used to it, the weight is fine plus the cord is so long it doesn't really matter that it's corded. It also means I can hoover the whole house in one go without worrying it will run out I also worried I would need to empty it every 5 minutes as we have 2 kids plus me with long hair and a malting dog... yes it needs emptying more often than a full upright but by having to empty it often I'm hoping it makes cleaning the filter easier! I've just hoovered the girls bedroom and the dust it collected was just unbelievable. If you have allergies I recommended getting a shark because what that pulled out of the carpet can't be good for anyone! The only criticisms I really have is that the extender bit for nooks and crannies (I also use it to do the stairs) isn't as robust as I would like and seems quite flimsy (hopefully it holds up to constant use!) and the other criticism is that when vacuuming the stairs it's hard going on your arms, because your holding the full weight of the unit as opposed to just the hose on an upright it can get those muscles going. Saying that I managed to do them in one go but it's something worth bearing in mind if you have arm weakness and are looking to completely replace your upright.
So overall the suction lives up to they hype. The weight is fine once your used to holding it differently. The head is amazing and can easily do under bunkbeds, corners and swivels with ease. The light may seem gimmicky but is brilliant for corners and ceilings. The attachment selection is brilliant, the hardwood floor attachment is fab (we have a lot of non carpeted areas) the cord is long and the dust compartment is easy to empty. The drawback is stair cleaning BUT it's manageable 🤗 #shark#sharkclean#vacuuming
