As it’s been a while since I did a wish list, I thought I would take some downtime over the weekend to tell you about the electrical items I’ve been lusting after recently. Sure it’s a little sad to want some of these things, but this is coming from someone who once had a kettle, toaster and microwave for her birthday! Also, since my kettle had to be returned (it was recalled) I’ve been looking around for a new one and come across several handy items!
Okay so it’s not a huge list, but all of these things would definitely be greatly appreciated. Majority of these are luxuries not essentials, but some would obviously replace the items I currently have and are on their way out.
Steam Irons – while I do currently have an iron, it’s definitely on it’s last legs. With all the sewing I’ve been doing recently (and more planned) I’m going to need a good working iron to make sure everything looks at its best. Even the hair bows I make require ironing so it’s pretty much an essential – especially if my current one dies.
Hand-held Vacuum – this is both an essential and a luxury. We currently have two hoovers, a Henry and a Dyson. One is kept on the ground floor and one on the first floor but both are big and a hassle to get out. As we have laminate flooring throughout our downstairs, dust and hairs collect really quickly. A hand-held vacuum would just be so much quicker to grab, hoover and be done with once or twice a week.
Electric Pasta Maker – until recently I didn’t even know these existed. I’ve always fancied the idea of making my own pasta but it always seems like such a hassle, especially with the ones where you feed it in and turn the handle. These electric pasta makers look so much easier and I’d definitely like to give it a try. I doubt it would get much use, just like my stand mixer and bread maker, but even still.
Breakfast machine – I don’t think that’s its official name but it’s definitely what I think of it as. These are a bit of a gadget really and you can get all types of different ones. However I think it would be pretty cool to have one machine that sort of did everything when it comes to a cooked breakfast. It won’t feed the whole family but it might mean I’d get breakfast in bed more often!
Sewing machines – last week I mentioned that I might be needing a sewing machine soon as mine is definitely not what it used to be when I was given it for my 18th birthday. I’m not exactly sure what I’m looking for when it comes to a new sewing machine though but making sure it looks pretty would definitely be a factor! Also buttons instead of a dial might be a nice change.
Dulux PaintPod – I’m sure other people make these but Dulux is the only make I’ve seen for sale (usually in B&Q). With doing so much decorating (we’re on our fourth room) and more to do I can’t help but feel like one of these would make life so much easier. We bought a wallpaper stripper very early on but these look like they could be a godsend. That said, you don’t see them for sale as much these days so maybe they’re more hassle than they’re worth.
As well as all those things, I would also live an iKettle (control the kettle with your iPhone, hell yeah), a breakfast sandwich maker (can you see a theme here?) and a tap that boils water for me (imagine, instant tea!!). Honestly I should probably just enter the Gadget Show competitions and then I’d have a hell of a haul!
