Craft [Oct. 11th, 2011|12:24 pm]
Tony Grist
I'm not very good at housework. Housework is a craft. I can push a duster along a flat surface or a vac across a carpet, but the results don't sing- not as they would if a proper crafts(wo)man were wielding the tools.

Talking about craft, I was watching a documentary about British pottery last night. I already knew I loved 17th century slipware, but now I love John Dwight's 17th century stoneware too.  

I'd love to be a potter, but only if I could skip the apprenticeship. I'm too impatient to be a good craftsman. I want the finished masterpiece in my hands, now.

I'm great at housework, but I just can't be bothered... That's why I've got a robot vac that just rolls around on the floor in random patterns and get most of the dirt; then I just need to wield the "real" vac when it needs to be completely spotless and I can let the robot do the weekly vacuuming.

I just need an appliance that can clean the windows for me, because I really can't be bothered and they are in dire need of attention!

To be honest, I can't be bothered either. Once in a while I'll realise we have visitors coming- and I'll panic.

I like the idea of a robot vac. Bet they're expensive, though!

It was about a hundred quid, I think. (Housewarming present from my mother-in-law - gotta love her!) So a bit pricey for a vac, but not Dyson-pricey... (Denis also has a Dyson that his mum bought for him while he was a student; what's with that woman and vacs? Still, I'm not complaining.)
