Our biggest fan


Thanks to the unseasonably warm weather we've been enjoying in the UK lately, we've been running a fan in our bedroom at night to circulate the air. It's kind of noisy, even when on low and after seeing a Dyson Air Multiplyer in action a few months ago we'd been fixated on getting one. The Dyson was shortlisted for a People's Choice Award as part of Wallpaper's annual Design Awards last year actually.

Fortunately as our 12th (!) wedding anniversary was looming this seemed like a good opportunity to get one for Rob. He was suitably delighted and can now enjoy quiet, non-buffeted air all night long.

FWIW: My annivesary present was a Flip video recorder. I guess normally this would be exactly the sort of thing I should get excited about, however about three weeks ago I'd said to Rob the reason why Flip was shutting down production was because HD video was available on smartphones now, making the extra device redundant.

Funnily enough that conversation was ignored/forgotten and I now find myself with two phones, an iPod Touch, a camera and now a Flip to take on holiday.
