Listography - Inventions

The wonderful @Katetakes5 of Kate Takes 5 blog fame has thrown down the gauntlet, which I have decided to pick up and run with.

This week's theme is 'inventions'

Things I'd like to have invented no matter how wacky or hare brain are:- 

1- Self Filling Fridge
If you didn't catch it, here are by before and after pictures of my fridge from Monday. If you saw it now, it's back to looking like the before picture. My son (nearly 18) is six foot one, so skinny its untrue and eats for England. So keeping it stocked is almost a full time job.

I enjoy the going out and shopping for food and putting into the trolley, plus the cooking and eating bit at the end. But I detest the.....
 'unloading onto the belt, putting into bags, back into the trolley, to the car, unload out of the car, fight past the dog who wants to investigate every bag, empty all the bags onto the counter and finally find space in the fridge bit' in between.

I will be a happy woman when that invention comes onto the market.

Ironing Fairy

2 - Automatic Ironing and Putting Away Machine
 (I am sensing a theme!)

I have no problems with the whole washing and drying part of the cycle. But hate the ironing and then putting away.

I'm not allowed to do any ironing for a while anyway because of the operation (How long can I use that excuse for do you think? Answers on a postcard to .....) but something which could take the chore away would be manna from heaven.

3 - Self Clearing/Filing/Deleting Mailbox

In my working life I have 'co-ordinator' in my rather long job title. I have *gazzillions of e-mails everyday. Sometimes I feel a huge portion of the day is spent deleting or filing e-mails before I can action the new ones pouring in

I would like a tool which knows telepathically when I have completed the e-mail task request, and either files it in the correct place or deletes it.

It would also delete all the duplicate requests and the corresponding sent e-mails keeping IT happy with my mailbox limits & my stress within acceptable levels.

* Please note gazzillions could be an exaggeration

4 - More Hours in the Day (am sure I am not the only one asking for this!)

I have been off work for 3 months and return on the 4th of July. I have no idea how I am going to fit work into my busy schedule!

I thought boredom would be a problem while recuperating, how wrong was I!

I just want to have enough time to work, keep up with the cooking I have been enjoying, long walks most days, twitter and blogging. A 26 hour day would be lovely!

5 - No Regret Powder
I think a lot of people have regret in the lives. 'Why didn't I go to university when the opportunity arose?' 'I should have spent more time with my family.' ' I wonder what would have happened if I had branched out on my own'

We can't do anything about the 'what might have happened if....' but must live with what did.

Sometimes regret can stop us from moving forward, and living in regret doesn't solve anything or make a person feel any better about it.

'No regret powder', would empower people to live in the now with positivity and look forward to the future. It would enable a person to not feel guilty for choices made and enable them to continue their lives in a more fulfilling state of mind.

I have made decisions in my life which, with the degree in hindsight we all get after the fact, weren't the best, but there is no point in regretting them.

Everything which has ever happened to me, the good and the bad, has made me the person I am. I like why regret?

So on that rather sombre note (sorry guys!) why not jump over to Kate's list and take a look at what other people have come up with! 


  1. I'd like to use your self filling fridge, please? Just a few times a week?

  2. Well you're not asking for much are you Fay?!

  3. can you snort or inject or swallow the no regret powder, or just inhale. I'd like it now please!

  4. Yep the no regret powder would be great, even though my Dad always maintained that it is not a mistake if you leanrt something from it. I matched you on the time issues, and suspect my eldest is heading in the same direction as your son with the continual eating mode.

  5. I love the self filling fridge! It should also be self cleaning too!

  6. Oooh, the no-reget powder has struck a chord with me. Times I wished I'd kept my mouth shut instead of saying what I really think. Honesty isn't always the best policy. It's a great list, Fay. Hope your boy's on the mend.

  7. Can I put in lots of orders for the no regrets powder please? Fab invention especially for people who experience depression.
    And the putting away thing too, yes please! My husband will wash, iron, dry but never ever put away so I end up with baskets of stuff to get rid of and no motivation to do it

  8. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours lately, but I by no means found any interesting
    article like yours. It's lovely price sufficient for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the internet can be a lot more helpful than ever before.
