But lost the dyson!

  1. Well I think you came out of that deal very well. But the animals without the Dyson is going to mean a lot of hair wafting around!!

    1. It sure is - our one dog moults enough by herself. In fact the last time husband vacuumed, he reckoned he'd sucked up enough hair to make a whole new dog.

  2. I got the stew pan only because his new girlfriend was a vegetarian

    Dare I say "That doesn't suck?" Okay, as Fozzie Bear used to say, "Bad joke, brain hurt."

    I'm glad you got the dogs and Albert and I'll bet they're glad, too. You're their human after all.

  4. Seems a good deal to me! I'd happily give up my Dyson and keep my dog.

  5. I find a Vax is much better anyway. X

  6. You got the better deal! A dyson can be replaced. (I took only what I brought.)

  7. I would rather cuddle up in bed with the dogs and Albert than with the dyson.

  8. One assumes it would have been difficult from a practical point of view for Chris to do otherwise.

    1. Indeed, the aim of the post was the impossible nature and fickle nature of the whole business

    2. Yes, that is how it is when you strip everything else away.

    3. I've had three Dysons and every one was crap!

  9. I literally laughed out loud at that! Well done - good deal!! x

  10. You are a master negotiator.

  11. Well, as Quentin Crisp said, “There is no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years the dirt doesn't get any worse.”

  12. I think that's called a result ...dysons replaceable animals not so !

  13. I definitely agree with the others, you have the better end of the deal there.

    Per Paula Poundstone . . . They say that housework won't kill you. I say why take a chance.

    The animals will be far more affectionate and loving than a Dyson. Time to let Henry (Hoover) into your life then!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well, if your house is anything like mine, you'll need another one of those IMMEDIATELY!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Congratulations. You got the far better deal. :)

  19. When i got divorced he got the house, business, savings and pension. I got the four kids!

    I agree with Rabbitquilter - get a Henry, or better still his sibling Harry designed for pet households. You can make new friends by taking him on a picnic with other Harry, Henry, Hetty owners (it's a whole new world!)

  21. An excellent bargain. No vacuum cleaner will give you a cuddle when you need it.

  22. You got the better deal...although I know you'll miss the Dyson! The Dyson can be replaced, though.

    Onward and upward from here, John.

  23. I've bought over the years 3 wretched Dysons: useless bloody things. If you have one with a 'belt' system you need 3 people to change it - 'won't lose suction' Ha ha, take a straw to the carpet instead. John, you got the beautiful, caring creatures who love you. And Winnie! (Joke, she's wonderful). What a fabulous result.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It kind of says something about your other half, doesn't it? You have the warmth and love of your devoted pets - a much better deal! There's cold comfort in a Dyson.

  25. In my divorce, he got the Porsche. I got the kids and the VW with bald tires and seat belts that didn't work.

    I must admit that I love my Dyson, way better than a Miele Cat and Dog....but Dysons are for Christmas whereas a dog, or cat, is forever.

  27. Who takes the pets speaks to integrity and compassion. As I told myself when I responded "Of course I'll take the cat."

    ReplyDelete
  28. I was going to say Dyson's suck, pardon the pun. I have a Sebo and a Dyson and I much prefer the Sebo. The Dyson gets blocked up all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Shouldn't they be a package deal, with all that fur to manage?!

    ReplyDelete
  30. And it comes to this... Anyway, of course you keep the dogs and Albert; but that should have been a package deal. You deserve to buy yourself a new and even better one.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Dysons are overrated imo. I have a Shark Liftaway and it’s wonderful and handles the fur from my two Pyrenees without clogging! Mirabile dictu, as we’ve gone through numerous vacs over the years

    ReplyDelete
  32. You've got the better deal. xx

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'd rather have the dogs & cats meself!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Pets will love you till they take their last breathe.....The choice between your girls and Albert and a Dyson, there was no choice, you've come away with all the love and I feel sorry for the person left with the Dyson (they're crap aa a hoover too) ☺☺ xxx

  35. Things can be replaced, Winnie can't.
    My ex insisted on the Sony-Beta-Max video tape recorder.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I agree - you got the better deal. However it is strange what a person fixates on in an "unweaving" of a shared life. For my ex it was some appliance- none of which he knew how to use. My thoughts were - they weren't worth fighting over and sure- you have those old no warranty appliances, I will go get new ones that won't come with repair bills,lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. Similar to my settlement, I got the dogs and lost the house and contents. Wouldn't have had it any other way x

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ours was supposed to be a divorce à l'amiable - my lawyer said it wasn't worth bringing up the domestic violence. BUUUUUUT when I saw that he was taking my Jamie Oliver cookbooks it almost turned nasty! He only took that stuff out of spite as he didn't cook. When I ended up cleaning out the house he abandoned I found a huge IKEA bag full of my cookery videos plus the video that went with my knitting machine left out in the snow. Oh well, it was still worth it!

  39. You got the good part of that deal. You can always get a vacuum.

    ReplyDelete
  40. You got the best part of that deal! The old advert, is the exact model of Vacuum my Mom had when I was little. It was a weird shade of rose/pink.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I got out with the clothes on my back, my six months old twin girls, my freedom and my life. He ended up with all the inanimate replaceable objects.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ooh, now you can get one of the new cordless stick vacuums that Dyson has. I love mine!

    1. Ooh yes! I recently got one, the Dyson Absolute V10 and I love it. Not as much as my dog though!

      Delete
  43. You most definitely got the best part of the deal. I have never had a vacuum which loved me. Or that I felt better for seeing in the morning or at the end of the day.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Ha! One is replaceable, the other's not! I like the comments about Warrantees, but Vet bills don't get covered either! It's a messy process, no matter how much apparent 'good will' there is. Kia Kaha - that means 'Be strong' in Maori.

  45. Dysons can't eat mini sausages and give you sloppy kisses lol. you got the best deal.

    ReplyDelete
  46. In all of this John it had never occurred to me that you wouldn't have the dogs and Albert!

  47. You could always replace it with a leaf blower.

  48. It makes me wonder what he needs a vacuum for.

  49. I think Chris understands how much you love and do for the animals and so it is only right to take the Dyson. No reason to remove the pets from a home where they are cared for so well.
    May this get easier for you as time goes on. Big hugs.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have a bloody great vacuum cleaner which is designed for dog hair if you want it. Re Dysons, stick to 240 volts.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Naturally you get to keep the animals you have always been the caregiver Chris did mot show the patience of cleaning up after them he seemed to think it was your job, so I find it odd that he would not leave you the
    vacuum cleaner rather petty I think.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Happy those “littles” will be with you!
    They wouldn’t want it any other way, you are their rock!
    We can all throw in a few coins for a new Dyson or whatever you choose!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Dogs and Dysons should not be parted.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Rather petty when he can better afford to buy a vacuum cleaner. I know that wasn't the point of your post, but the more I read, the less I like him, especially as he doesn't seem to have the face to return to Trelawnyd to sort his stuff and remove it.

    ReplyDelete
  55. You got the very best part!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Dyson Schmyson. We've got a Bush vacuum cleaner that's just as good. Howard once sucked up a live mouse in it that survived intact & with no obvious ill effects, to be let out in the garden near the compost bin.

  57. I will never buy another Dyson product because James Dyson was such a big Brexit supporter.

    ReplyDelete
  58. It is better for all that you keep the fur family. Set up a go-fund-me and you'll have a new vacuum in no time,
