INSPECTOR GADGET 😂

Don't know about you but I've got every gadget under the sun?

To help me ...open jars...pick thing up... Lightweight Hoover... steam cleaner...the list goes on.

So I decide to vacuum l/room. I lasted 10mins before I gave up and sat back down.

I hoovered the leg of my pjs ( yes I'm still in them) managed to fangle the louvre blind cord and broke it... Hoovered the cats dinner much to their dismay and nearly choked myself to death with the flex.

I thought it was a good idea to wrap it round my neck to save it trailing on the floor.

I know what your thinking? What an idiot!

Anyone fancy coming over to make me a cuppa ,I managed to put the kettle on but can't get up to make it.

Any offers???😰

I've just bought an electric can opener, bottle opener and knife sharpener in one, I don't know how I managed opening cans before without chopping my fingers off, this gadget is amazing. Unfortunately I've had to give up on hoovering 😃

best buy for me is a halogen cooker you know the thingy with big glass bowl

its got a timer then it switches itself of

so as long as i set the heat setting i dont burn anything although ive still managed to carbonise a cod in batter as i forgot the temperature was high on it . but overall im not burning as much as usual

have had three steamers in the last few months forget to put water in them they dont like it . but they are good two as they switch off and even if you over time it at least the foods not burnt to a crisp

Hi I also have a halogen oven but I burnt out the element. They are brilliant tho, so I will have to buy an element online. I named it the spaceship because of the way the light goes on and off. Great invention. 😺

Cream Cake,, nothing I loved more than a springy moist cream cake and a good cappuccino.

Can't do it any more with the wheat and dairy intolerance. A friend called back in July she is a fantastic baker she brought me half a dozen gluten free dairy free cupcakes she had gone to the bother of making. " Oh lovely they look divine,,," no soy in them by any chance ?" She was silent for a brief moment swore at me through her teeth. I thought she was going to explode at one stage.

They travelled 80 miles back home with her.

It was sad, but at the same time funny in that if you didn't laugh you'd cry and we all do enough of that!

Yes you chuck 1kg of potatoes in and it swirls them around and there peeled in the time it takes my son to peel one 😀

And I believe he asked ask Santa for it for me 😀

It's makes a racket it's easy to clean but he forgot to put my fibro head in mix they still boil dry unless I sit there for 20 mins and watch them ,😓just like the pizza that was creamated tonight 😅

I am now belt and braces when trying to cook anything with a wind up timer and also one of those beeping ones with the idea i might be able to ignore one not two but then I have to try and remember why I put the timer on in the first place.!x

My daughter abbi left me with 3 of those and they have all Brocken on me . And have just thought I have a spare alarm clock up stairs that would do the same job .

My son got me one that did a jig and bounced about it was revenge for all the unbreakable alarm clocks I bought him as a teenager ,as you can tell we have good fun these days at my expense revenge for the water pistol attacks when he would get up when he was younger 😇 I was the perfect mummy 😂😂😂😂😂

All mothers are perfect that goes without saying! I love the thought of the dancing alarm clock that your son bought you.

Off to bed now as thinking of alarms I did not want to get up this morning when mine went off as I had actually got the old limbs comfy but did not want to miss my Crime Book Club so did make the effort to get up. Glad I did as we had a great discussion and I even managed to go and have coffee with three of them. Mind you I have been absolutely cream crackered ever since but worth it. Hope you have a good night.x

I want one of those!

I had pizza tonight and it was lovely. Brian cooked it I might add.

I am banned from the kitchen having set fire to it 3 times.

I'm a hazard.

A friend gave me a plaque " When the smoke alarm goes off the dinner is ready"

I can burn stuff even when I'm watching over it a bit like you.

Need to investigate the peeler, sounds great x

Put in on a certain major internet shopping site Axxxxxxx

Stops the augment about who's peeling spuds when you have a house full ,and if you cut the carrots so they are the same size they will peel thoughts to .😀

Nothing like lazy children ages are 22/26/29 but still children when they are together such fun 😀

I told them all about my creamation teqniqes in court two weeks ago they didn't believe me asked why I couldn't pack salmon in a microwave that was the judge 😕

Your welcome I've got my late parents to thank for that. They both had a great sense of humour.

My childhood memories are filled with fun. So lucky!

I am so genuinely sorry to read that and I think that we all have days like that, I know I do! I also have a gadget for every occasion and they are so cool but only if I can actually use them. One of my favourites is my tumble dryer as taking out washing and pegging it on the line is almost impossible, and the dryer has a ready to wear mode whereby I do not need to iron it.

I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the bets of luck with getting this cuppa tea. Please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Ken

Do what I used to do many yrs ago. I tied a rope to my sons swing and sat on the back step pulling it.

I have to say he was only 1yr at the time and easy on the muscles. 😀

Reply

Yeah that's what we do! Tied a skipping rope to the swing and put a chair near the swing, play area is at the bottom of our bug garden, but the not the same and can't go so high now he's nearly 3!, my daughters nearly 5 but she can do it her self now sick if waiting for mummy to have a good day!

Cordless vacuum cleaners are a godsend but before buying check how long a charge lasts. Mine has 2 batteries which are supposed to give me about an hour but seem to last longer. My daughter in law loves seeing what gadgets I've found recently, I'm always on the look out for things to make life easier.

Ha, ha, ha Jan, thanks for the laugh, I can just imagine the cats looking at each other and meowing "What's she up to now??".

A wee place called Blantyre where the famous explorer and missionary. David Livinstone was born. Plus me.

The poor soul popped his clogs many many yrs ago but his birthplace is worth a visit.

Ps. I've also had a cordless one but I turned into a maniac and burned the battery out. Needless to say I done my battery in as well. 😂

What's your middle name..Lucky?? Lol

Sorry, Blantyre is a bit too far away from Whitefield, but I will think of you when I brew up for me and mine!

Latest buy is a hair dryer which attaches to a cap. Hair dryer is really small & light. Haven't tried it out yet but will update when I know if it's any good.
