I do love new gadgets in the morning!

There are times in life when you order something online, and you’re really looking forward to it arriving at your front door. Perhaps it might be because you’ve always wanted to get this, or perhaps it’s because you have an older version that no longer performs the way it used to.

Am I talking about an Akai MPC, perhaps? Maybe one of those lovely Novation things or possibly a brand spanking new synth to add to my collection in the studio?

Am I heck. No, I’m talking about getting a brand new Shark vacuum cleaner. My old vacuum cleaner has done a good job, but it’s had its day. I need a new one and I ordered it yesterday. It should be here on Friday.

Sorry to anyone who’s disappointed, but when you live in a house with three kids, there are things you can’t do without…
