I loved him so much, he always had a smile on his face and he worked hard without complaint.
He was very experienced and happy upstairs and down, the only place he didn't want to do it was on the stairs themselves.
So I was cruel, I was unfaithful, but I wanted to have my cake and eat it. A couple of years ago at Christmas I asked my L&M for a small powerful handheld vacuum to use on the stairs, I wanted this as well as Henry.
Never one to do anything by halves he bought me a GTECH Air RAM cordless vacuum along with the small handheld version.
I'm sure the GTECH is a great piece of kit if you are bald and never have children in the house, for me it is useless, I have to strip it down every couple of weeks to unravel the hair caught in the rollers. It doesn't pick up the bits of paper left after the children have finished cutting and sticking so I have to sweep the floor with a brush and dustpan. As for the small handheld vacuum, it isn't powerful enough to clean the stairs.
So my poor Henry went to a new home and I deeply regret my unkindness to him.
