Thought people would be interested in my mini debacle relating to an over zealous bid on a faulty DC27.
Usually I am fairly
restrained but I like my own DC27 very much and this has the mini turbine head with it. So I figured a bid for another to keep my current one company was in order.
I won the auction for not a lot and got the details for where exactly this broken hoover was.
Stuck the post code in google. Hmmmm not good. Staffordshire is a silly county and covers a lot of nothing!
Hmm 60 mile round trip
Not sure how I managed that.
In the absolute middle of nowhere, and I mean nowhere!
So on a Monday night, after a long day at work I am spending 45 minutes each way driving cross country for a shagged hoover. Bit of a FML moment really
Found the place after driving down miles and miles of single track roads and a couple of calls for directions. Deal done lovely!
So best part of 2 hours of my life I won't get back and I am home.
Mrs not impressed.
Eat my tea and half heartedly look at the not so sucky DC27.
Looks pretty good in the light. Hmm.
Filters are clean and recent.
Motor works a treat, no nasty sparking.
So what's the issue?
All is well that ends well, mint machine that doesn't even need a strip down bar the cyclone, happy days!
Silly story for today
