I don't have carpets, just one small bedside rug about 75cm square.
So my floors are cool and smooth and I like to walk around with bare feet.
But Adelaide is a dusty place and this dust gets inside via under door gaps, around window gaps, it comes in on my shoes, on the wheels of my granny trolley, and through the airconditioner which I now have. (yay, cool air!)
It settles on the furniture, which I can ignore for quite a while, (months, years) and it settles on the floors, and I can only ignore that for a few days, after that I'm walking around feeling the dust and minute gritty particles.
I tell myself I should vacuum, but that involves more work than I'd like. (lazy, that's me)
First I have to get the machine from the back porch, then connect the hoses, then I need to drag out the super long extension cord and plug that in, plug the vacuum cord into that, then vacuum the
Then when I've finished, I have to undo the whole thing and pack it away again.
It's really not that much work, but it is quicker to grab the broom, sweep, then pick up the dust with the dustpan and brush. Right?
But...(heh, always a but)....by the time I sweep the dust into a pile, then chase down the fluff bunnies that swirled away and bent down to sweep under the bed and couch, the time difference isn't all that much. And while sweeping, some dust will always manage to get away.
So by the time I'm finished I'm mentally kicking myself for not getting the vacuum and doing a proper job.
So, defluff the broom, pick up the pile of dust and fluff, wash my hands and sit down to recover, telling myself I will definitely get the vacuum out next time.
But do I? Heck no! it's too much work to get the machine in from the porch.........
