As Tara traverses the country on an epic holiday, she has sent me a blog post about a hoover. I kid you not. Here it is…
Hoover OCD, Margo from the Good Life & my cat Gaius
You may think these title subjects a bit odd for a blog post but I just had to share them with you to see if there are any other like-minded people out there! I have a Miele Cat & Dog hoover, not very exciting I know but I love it! I also have a beautiful cat called Gaius who runs a mile whenever the hoover comes out as he is scared of it! As I am typing this, he is sitting next to me purring away on the arm of my chair, he has just come in from the wet weather and wants me to dry him off I expect! Anyway, I digress, back to the hoover. I am not embarrassed to say that I am obsessed with my hoover and use it at every opportunity! Even if I don’t need to hoover I still do, perhaps I need to get a life?! Also, I am feeling more and more like Margo from the Good Life and find myself saying “Shoes Simon” to my husband! Poor thing! He is so untidy whilst I am the opposite (think Sleeping with The Enemy) and I find myself following him round the kitchen with the dustpan and brush and a cloth to wipe the kitchen work surfaces down after him! As soon as anything touches the floor it’s in the wash or washed up before he’s even finished with it! I know I drive him mad but I can’t help it! I don’t look like the picture of Margo in the Union Jack apron however when I’m cleaning! Maybe I should change my outfit!
Now, onto my cat Gaius. I didn’t pick the name by the way, my hubby did. He is named after the Roman Emperor Caligula “Little Boots”. He has the same sort of personality too, although last night, he was so just so sweet. Curled up by the fire sleeping peacefully like butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth, bless. I just wanted to share this with you.
