    So this weekend was interesting.

    Saturday our four slice toaster died and we decided to get a new one through warranty, we decided to get extended warranty because we've had issues in the past. The toaster was nice but had one bad design flaw. For whatever reason you could only use one side of the toaster unless you were toasting four slices. So that one side would eventually burn out quicker than the other side, which is what happened. So we returned it.

    We couldn't find a toaster. There's a 'retro' trend in toasters at the moment which we don't really like. So they gave us a gift card to use. We ended up using that towards the Bose Soundlink Mini 2. We were planning on going for a Bose wireless system but we just decided to have two Soundlinks. One for upstairs, one for downstairs. It works. :)

    So you're probably wondering about the toaster situation....

    We bought one, probably the most expensive four slice toasters I'll ever buy. However, it matches our other appliances. It is very neat though but I need to use it more to give a complete review of it.

    Next will be the kettle... it's the only thing left that doesn't match. It's next. :P

    On top of that there was an international kite festival in town. I have some pics but I need to do some cropping, etc.

    Debenhams does carry some of the Sage stuff.

    We have the Quick Touch microwave, the citrus press pro, Smart toaster, Risotto Plus cooker and Kenetix blender. The rice cooker and blender we got for free, they were part of an offer.

    We're getting the Smart Kettle next.

    Edit: And I have the espresso maker... can't believe I forgot that!

    I'm not sure if the Sage brand is everywhere. It's the Australian brand Breville.

    We're thinking about getting a Dyson cordless sometime in the future. We want one with a HEPA filter but they're fairly expensive. We don't have carpet but they have some attachments for floors which would be handy.

    I got one from Singapore in 2011 and still works like champ. Primarily for the cars but the attachments made it somewhat all purpose.

    We were thinking the Dyson Animal to start with but now that's changed as the wife wants a HEPA filter which is only on one V6 and on the V8 models. They're not cheap so we'll have to wait for a sale.

    I think that's a good choice. I thought Dyson was overpriced before, my opinion about it has changed.

    I've done like 8 of them, only first two were introducing some new elements, other 6 were just practicing them. And yes, I also think it's a bit too much.

    Not only that they demand you to pay for insane number of classes, but the folks that supervise you, and who decide whether you get your licence or not, are very corrupted. Here's how it goes. First attempt to pass the exam is pre calculated in the price you pay to your instructor, if you fail that one, for any further attempt, you have to pay 100KM more (~40$, note that 40$ is not small amount of cash here). Now if you don't want to fail (and you will, trust me), you have to bribe them with 120KM (~50$). So you'll end up paying a bit more, but your safe to pass.

    I hate assholes who do that, and morons who take the money, I will never do such a thing, it's everything I stand against in a country like this. Sadly, bribing the commission has become a mandatory thing nowdays. Truelly sad.

    Some of these things are huge (and expensive) and you'd be smart not to fly them anywhere near a tree!

    Morning folks. It's a nice day not to be at work.

    Well, got some chores to do in an hour when I get home. The time away from work, while not as productive as I'd like, was definitely helpful.
