The future’s bright, the future’s a robotic cleaner

We just bought a robot vacuum, it solves so many issues…

House chores some people hate them, some people love them. Either way, I can think of much better things to do with life than cleaning the house.

That may be a terrible statement but its true. I was a spoiled child who got to skip household chores. That means today I rebel against the idea of me cleaning.

My partner is the opposite and had house chores during her childhood.

Cleaning duties in our house are sometimes like war.

Until yesterday I had two main tasks in the house.

  1. Washing dishes
  2. Vacuuming/Washing floors

I know it isn’t much and I can’t complain.

Still, there has to be a better way. It’s not like cleaning adds value to our time after all.

There are only 2 of us, so when you take the energy consumption of the dishwasher into our lives. It’s not a worthwhile trade-off.

Besides washing dishes from 2 of us, takes 5 minutes.

It’s the vacuuming and washing floors that need to go.

Not just because I hate them. I’m human and so far from consistent.

The solution may have arrived…

Again there are only two of us. Neither of us grew up particularly wealthy so no cleaner. We don’t feel that’s the correct choice for us.

Instead, we welcomed a new robot vacuum and mop into the house.

Already it’s proved its value. No more lost time, or time doing something we are not interested in, and no more inconsistency.

Once our cute little robot has been around the room once, it built a map. After that tell it which room its in and walk away.

After it has mopped or vacuumed it sends a notification.

It’s a fantastic little thing and a huge time saver.


Yes I know it sounds like a waste of money, but its build to the same standard of a high-end vacuum. It costs a similar amount of money, and I don’t need to drag it around.

Life is busy, things that bring us no joy get in the way.

We work, we have hobbies. Anything that gets in the way gets cut.

This is an extension of that outlook on life.

The future is here, it’s robotic, what an interesting time to be alive!
