Amy dropped eva off the sofa at 3 weeks old,  she was fine...

Miele is on low,  its sort of working,  but he is hungry. Not food time yet

The new wand makes it look 158% better!





This sticker came from the old wand, and looks OK from a distance, I'll leave it up to you wether to scrap it off when you see it in person, you can tell where it peeled off on one corner



Done! Mvacs - PM incoming!

It deserves a dust free retirement where people can look at it,  not locked away in the loft with me scared to touch it.

Of course the hunt is now on for another!

Well,  the dc03 is no longer sat in reception at work,  so hopefully ups are not smashing the shit out of it as it wings its way northwards!

It arrived this morning. Slight cracking where the handle joins the canister, but certainly the best one of these I have ever seen. In fact, I have never seen a complete one that wasnt smashed to bits.  :thumbsup:

Our chap said, "He does a nice job that Beko bloke" and asked what wax you use. :chuckle:

Aah no,  im so sorry about that! Bloody ups!

Youll have to have it at a jaunty angle in the case to hide it...

Thanks for the feedback! It was a labour of love,  but worth it!  Just try not to get it too dusty,  or youll have to buy some microfibres and buff it back up!
