After an evening of watching a good film in bed with sunflower seeds being cracked and eaten throughout it was time to retire and sleep as we were so, so tired. One last job was to take the glass bowl of sunflower shells out to the kitchen and empty in the bin. Oh I wished that had been done the following morning! As I walked past the bed my hand knocked on the bed headboard and the glass bowl slipped out of my hand hitting the lino. The glass shattered and the sunflower shells scattered all over the floor. It was out with the hand vacuum cleaner but that wasn't any good as the batteries were too low. Then out with the electric vacuum only to fin there was no suction as the bag was full. Finally it was a hand brush and pan that cleared the mess, and the morning we had to be sure to wear slippers before emptying the vacuum bag and going over the area again for glass splinters that were still lurking.
