Simply domestic: a new vacuum

My husband, the resident geek, got into his best geek mode recently and decided it was time to invest, and I do mean inve$t, in a new vacuum. Our new bagless Dyson DC17 Animal (for homes with pets) vacuum arrived in time for our move this weekend.

(Our son is wearing Dad’s ankle socks.)

Doesn’t it look like something out of a science fiction movie? “Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!”

We were using a Miele with a HEPA filter for the past 6 years, and despite that the house was vacuumed with the Miele a few days ago, this is how much dust, dirt and general junk the Dyson (which also has a HEPA filter) picked-up in about a 100-square foot area. That’s a lot of shorthair!

  1. Hey, I’ve got one of those, too! Except mine – if possible – looks even more like something from outer space. And yes, I had that same shock-horror reaction when re-vacuuming a recently vacuumed flat with the new Dyson… Seeing all that dust and hair (long, black and mine) made it all worth while, though, although it was bloody expensive.
