The pic of you laid back with a silly smile as if the wine had agreed with you.
Yes those flexible 'tongs' and another has a magnetic end to it.

Our super bagless Hoover has 4 or 5 filters that need cleaning out. I end up like a flower grader cleaning them all out. Gimee the old paper bag type any day.

Those couches are the most uncomfortable things I have come across Ray, you canīt sit up on them unless you put umpteen cushions behind your back. They seem to be all the rage here, you donīt sit on the sofa anymore you lay on the couch with a blanket and the damn things take up so much space.
Similar to this one

Yes we hate them and actually right at this moment are discussing our rental apartment in Portugal next year and the uncomfortable chairs.
We like a head support and now have got used to foot supports swinging up level. Hate Chesterfields.

Funny but we were only just discussing dog hair! I have taken to grooming Georgia twice daily since we have noticed how much hair we have in the small space that we are now all living in. We kept finding dog hairs everywhere. Extra grooming has helped.

Chris's chest is still giving him problems so dog hair is a consideration in the mix of things that might be the culprit.

I reckon our Border Collie sheds enough to make a blanket over the space of a month.... we had to change vacs 'cos the mains Dyson could not cope, the one we have now needs daily emptying but has enough dog hair per day to make a square for a quilt, if only I could be bothered......

When we took him to our daughter's centrally heated very hot house over Christmas he shed for France and even her daily ministrations with her industrial vac struggled unless he was brushed and combed every two days - he had obviously reckoned that his winter coat was no longer needed so donated it to her.......

Thinking of ALL the front line staff working to try to help others;Doctors, nurses, paramedics, cleaners, NA's, catering staff, support services and all others. Their work is appreciated more than you can ever realise-keep strong and safe.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
