Day 323: A Solution for My Broken Vacuum Cleaner and More Clutter Sold

Facebook Marketplace is serving me well at the moment. I haven’t advertised anything for a couple of weeks due to limiting my contact with people; however, I managed to sell something today that’s been on there for a few months and was so far down the listings that I’d almost forgotten about it. It was a Crystal Growing Kit that never got used by the girls so it was good as new. I sold it for £8. The man collecting it seemed pleased and said that it was a gift for someone. That’s one less item getting in my way and I’m pleased it’s gone to a good home.

Another few quick wins today:

A solution for the vacuum cleaner: I’ve been wanting to contact the company Shark about my vacuum cleaner for a while now but knew that I needed to go through the troubleshooting pages online, receive a fault code, ring them up, wait in a queue and then troubleshoot again with them on the phone.

I did all of that today and only had to wait 10 minutes in the queue. Then another 10 minutes on the phone and the result was that they are going to send me a new part which is actually the ‘main body’. He thinks that the motor is faulty. He said that the part might take a few days to arrive due to the pandemic. This evening I got an email saying that DPD are delivering it tomorrow. What a result! It’s all included in the five year warranty as well.

The sink area in the kitchen: The draining board area has been full of bits and pieces that shouldn’t be there, so today I cleared everything away and wiped it all down. With the nice tidy ‘under sink’ cupboard that I organised the other day, the whole area is now looking clearer and brighter.

Pile of clothes in the study: I really don’t want to start a habit of placing baskets of washing in the new study, so I went through the ones that I’d placed there the other day and put everything away. There’s a pile left that I don’t know what to do with e.g. bedding no longer being used from my daughter’s old bed, clothes that the girls don’t wear. It’ll probably all end up in the next charity shop run. I must get into the habit of getting rid of things straight away.

I made a mini apple pie this evening which went down well with a bit of ice cream. Photos on Instagram.

Now for a relaxing bath and then off to bed early.

Hope you’ve all had a good Wednesday.

Until tomorrow…

  2. Busy and productive, remember to schedule downtime even if it is only for 15 minutes, so very important.
