If I could invent anything....

I don't know about you but I find it very hard to get my husband motivated to do any sort of 'house-work'. We made an agreement when we started living together that I would be responsible for keeping the inside clean and tidy and he would be resposnible for keeping the outside neat and tidy. 18 months on and I have done everything from nag to threaten to call VIP to get him to mow the grass (why can't I you ask...because I clean the toilet and everything else that's inside!)

So, to that end, I would invent an automatic lawn-mower, you know, like those automcatic vacuumm cleaners, except this one you chuck in the backyard and it mows the lawn for you. That way I can stop nagging the hubby about the fact that the grass is taller than me. And then with all the time I save by not nagging I can invent my husbands ideal invention...an automatic beef-jerky maker. Like an industrial toaster, except you put a steak in one side and out pops the beef jerky on the other.

The other thing I would love to invent is something to hold Christmas lights on to a window that doesn't leave marks and inevitably fall down every 2 days! I love christmas lights and I have quite a few, however trying to come up with a way of making them stick to the window without using an entire roll of sticky-tape is proving impossible! And those suction cap thingy's...a waste of time!

  1. Ooh, we could totally use an automatic mower! My fiance is like your hubby, which is why my garden is severely overgrown!
