Not particularly coffee related, but our new robot companion arrived a few days ago, and he makes swift work of spilled grinds.

 

We're treating him well, so we hope we won't be treated too harshly after the machine uprising.caf8605c74586df38b4f74ff0de98b53.jpg

Ron started here last week! I always thought robot vacs were a joke but I am really impressed!

I think it's a bit like having a dishwasher: it's something you _could_ do yourself, but the feeling of just telling something else to do it for you is hard to beat, even if it might not do it quite as well.

 

NB: you're brave having a robot hoover and a dog: I've seen some horror scenes where a little "present" gets destributed all around the house!

Oh NO!! Ron is far too well behaved to produce presents and Minty hasn’t ever . . . !!!

 

It’s amazing how many other jobs I’m getting done now I’m not having to run the hoover round!

Nobody liked my 10-year-old Roberto upstairs, so it's roaming about the roastery now. Oh how do I love just putting it on and leaving the mess behind...!

Not so much the postie, more “What did the @coffeechap bring me today”!!

 

I didn’t make the meet up, but at least I got the grinder. It’s quite a beast but I’ve secreted it in the corner so hopefully nobody will notice

Oh come on, there’s a wee coffee grinder there. Worth every penny of the £34.50 :)

It’s just the *ahem* reflections!! I’ll give you the dodgy plastering, not guilty - would be a lot worse if I’d done it!!

I’m interested to know what you weigh with the scales on the wall surely that’s not the best way to use them:)
