Have just ordered a Roomba vac cleaner. 

Love my Roomba. Needs to be used most days for best effects. I've also worked out that it does a better job if you give it a smaller area at a time to clean (ie my lounge/dining or a couple of bedrooms). If I clean the brushes & filter regularly it even picks up dog hair from previous home owners that my Dyson has missed!
I have a Facebook page with all things cooking, you'll find it here: https://www.facebook.com/What-Amber-Ate-1097437023601587/

Your home must be lovely Maddy with all the bits and pieces.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Are you sure the boys won't leave home though maddy ;D  Freshly brewed coffee sounds nice as does strawberries and champagne. Can you make one that smells like bread baking  ;)

Thinking of the new iPad air with 128 GB ........

Jam, your Roomba sounds good. Do you have to manually clean corners?

If you are interested in a robot vacuum Bzb I say do your research. Whirlpool normally has lots of info. When I bought mine we did tonnes. Even watched comparison videos on dust content/ time taken etc between all the models. At the time LG rated best and wasn't the dearest. I don't have to set boundaries etc I just turn it on and off she goes. If it runs out of battery  charge (I have a two storey house) it will go back to docking station to charge and resume from where it stopped once charged. It doesn't fall off stairs. So I can set when we are out.

128GB sounds perfect Gert. The bigger the better.

A good julienne slicer that doesn't take up too much cupboard space.
And my last egg cooker broke. I find these reliable and handy.
