Introducing Victor Suckerbag

20100926 Vacuum Cleaner 300x225 Introducing Victor Suckerbag

Drilling into MDF creates dust and I believe it’s not the most healthy of things to inhale. Fixing my mirror resulted in only minute quantities of dust but enough to warrant getting my vacuum cleaner out of hibernation. Well, he seemed delighted, if a little shocked! Good ol’ trusty Vic with his bug eyes, and gormless open mouth. I bought him from Argos several years ago and he’s still going strong. Also notice my slippers. I think they were given to me as a a birthday present a few years ago… Oh the joy. I don’t feel old enough to be getting slippers for my birthday. Saying that, I’m beginning to go thin on top. It happens to the best of us, I’m told. Hey-ho.

Bob’s my uncle

20100926 Monkey Clips 300x225 Bobs my uncleHaving lived in my new flat for over a month without a bathroom mirror, I went into town and got myself one. I had been using a small shaving mirror, which was inadequate to be honest. This particular mirror has little eyes that you have to fix to the MDF backing with self-tapping screws. Tie a piece of string between the two and Bob’s your uncle – you have something with which to hang your mirror off a picture hook! I have an uncle Bob. His real name is actually Bob, not Robert. Anyway, I digress… I noticed that these little eyes looked a bit like monkeys – with a liberaral sprinkling of imagination. Or psychosis. You decide.
