    A woolly hat and gloves, it's Winter, yet again.
  2. Brilliant! I wish I could train the Wife to do it.

    A refurbished Henry HVR 160 II from MyHenry- UK. It was bound to happen. Rowena said "another vacuum cleaner?". I told her I was sick of getting covered in sh!t when I emptied the bagless ones in the bin in our windy back yard. Bearing in mind, she hasn't used a vacuum cleaner in years, she didn't argue. I banned her from using one when she tried to vacuum up water with a Hoover Junior in the 1980's.

    Shark are quite good by the reviews on the Tube, but I haven't seen one yet (come one family ).I don't know how good (or bad) they are. There isn't a perfect vacuum cleaner at this point in time, despite Mr Dyson's claims. Nothing is perfect, certainly not vacuum cleaners. But some I take a fondness of my friend.

    The DC59 is a v6 with a different motor(if Dyson is to be believed). I have two V6's and they are good at what they do.   I suspect you used yours almost exclusively on standard power setting, that's why you got such a long life out of the battery.   On high power (MAX), Dyson batteries get hot. The cells (normally Samsung) are designed for such high power output, but it reduces the life span of the battery.   If you got a third party battery it will certainly not be of Dyson's original spec and will best be used on standard power only. Imho, of course.
  6. I don't know what my vintage watches and my G Shocks say about me, however, I've never consider a watch a status symbol. Good luck to the watchmakers, I have a completely unique and original Roy Taylor watch.
  7. I doubt Cassie would be bothering with that.
  8. Rowena will insist on calling them blouses.

    They are John, but don't get me started on vacuum cleaners.
  10. That's just attention to detail. Or what has now become, erm, that new thing.
  11. That's not OCD, it's preparation and planning. Which may be …………… OCD in the modern world. Tomorrow, I will be addressing everyone I speak to as "citizen", just to make sure I don't offend someone. Although, that may not work either.

    A Henry extension hose and an extra tool adaptor.
  13. Thanks Wrench, great post mate.
  14. I put a new Hepaflo bag in Henry today, and it wasn't full. It seems all the fine dust he's got out of the bagless machines clogged his bag up very soon. Great work Dyson/ Vax etc (in fact, all bagless vacuums). The cyclones aren't efficient and the filters on most clog with pleasure. Every home needs a Henry, to clean out the vacuum cleaners of our own homes and those of family and friends. Not to mention the brick and plaster dust that would kill bagless machines. Yes, I was paid by James Dyson for this post. I'm waiting for the cheque. All in good fun, I have two Dysons which work as advertised, but it's great to have a Numatic to help with the maintenance routine. Move along, uninteresting interlude.
