Repair and conquer...

So I ran over the sucky end of the vacuum cleaner - and it hasn't been the same since. Who knew a large powered wheelchair with two 80 watt batteries and a fully grown adult could do so much damage?

I finally managed to track down a new sucky end (its the correct definition) and some new bags in an actual repair shop. Something pretty hard to find here in Birdyville.

New sucky thing - £25
New bags - £5

However -

Vacuum cleaner - new - £25

I guess I wouldn't have been able to get such a cheap one again, and repairing it is the right thing to do - but its easy to see why people discard rather than repair.
