every year, the family asks what i want for a bday pressie. this year i thought long and hard, at first i asked for a new cake mixer. i desperately want a new one for myself. mom's mixer has been very good, but i think its time to retire it. but just 3 weeks before my birthday i changed my mind and asked for a vacuum cleaner instead.
the friends, rolled their eyes when they heard this. "like babe, so auntie!"
i try to explain- i do most of the vacuuming at home. i am also a clean freak that cannot see dust. so i end up cleaning quite a bit (have you heard of the time i cleaned the toilet at 1am, cos i just couldn't stand it anymore?). look it's not OCD. it's just that my dad mops, my mom cooks and drives people around AND does most of the families laundry, and i vacuum and clean the toilet. my sis usually makes a mess and my hubby is around for moral support! =P
i've had enough of the rubbish phillips vacuum that dad bought for about $100 few years ago, that is slowly dying. It sucks, and i don't mean literally. And we have a british short hair, and a carpeted staircase, so a good vacuum cleaner is sooo important! so i asked for a Bosch, i asked for a cheaper version, but my dad got me the Bosch Home Pro!
It is....*drumroll* absolutely amazing- i've been in vacuum nirvana since i got it! It's got a ten year warranty on a turbo powered motor (hubby was so excited, that we had a turbo something even if it was a vacuum cleaner! although he'd prefer the colt Version R turbo engine instead)
Its got an extra long electric cable which is a plus, it's light, it has fabulous stainless steel well thingees, it puts away nicely, it has a special head for parquet and tiles, and it's great with the carpet!
Only 2 things i thing can be improved, its wheels don't go over the electric cable easily. So if your wires get in the way of the vacuum, it takes a bit to get it to go over smoothly. And two, the handle isn't too ergonomically designed i think, my wrist tires quite quickly. But other than that it's FABULOUS!
