The self-emptying bin for Vicky arrived, so I've set that up. Also the Bissell Crosswave arrived; I've assembled that and put it on charge. We might use it tomorrow.
And the carpet cleaner arrived, the Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution, which is a bit of a mouthful, so I think I'll just call it "Bissell carpeter". That probably won't get used more than once each year, but our carpets haven't been cleaned for 12 years, and in some places you can actually see the dirt.
The Crosswave will replace the mop-and-bucket that we've used since always; ladysolly is quite excited about it. It should be easier to use, and faster, and cleaner.
