Listography - Inventions

This weeks theme over at Kate Takes 5 Listography this week is inventions that would make my life easier. I am looking forward to meeting Kate in person this week, it'll be weird as I feel like I know her already from reading her blog and taking part in Listography link ups from time to time.

Here is my list . . .

1. Automatic Nappy Changer

Something that will hold my little darling in place and change his nappy for me. I am at my wits end with him screaming and rolling over in an effort to escape me and the nappy. Now that he's crawling it's ten times worse!

2. A free dog walking service for rainy nights  (Hubby would claim that it's him)

We love our dogs but there is nothing worse than looking out the window when you are about to take them out and it's pouring! Dog walkers can be expensive and we wouldn't want one all the time but it would be nice if one magically appeared when it was raining!

3. A Quick Dry and Ironing Machine

Something you could load your clothes into which dries them and irons them. My biggest annoyance when we have weather like this is that I can't get my washing hung out. I hate it when clothes are hanging all over the house in an effort to dry them. I also hate ironing and I do as little of it as I can get away with. Apparently it exists but I don't know if I'd be trusting it not to shrink stuff!

4. An eat yourself thin pill

Wouldn't it be great if you could just pop a pill when you had overindulged and it made you slimmer. No more diets! Eat and drink whatever you like and don't worry about it. Maybe it can automatically tone up your body as well, save time on exercise! Here I am tucking into something that looks healthy but it's actually a calorific caesar salad, yum!

5. Weather Controls

I would like to have more control over the weather. It seems from no2 and 3 on my list that I am a little weather obsessed. It can spoil your day if the weather isn't right and it is something over which you have no control. No more drowned out weddings and festivals, no more loss of crops due to drought and no more flooding. It might be a bit tricky if everyone wanted different weather but hey this is make believe, who said it had to be practical!

For more lists check out . . .



  1. Awesome list. Love every one of them. Of course we should all have a weather controller...and I can just picture the automatic nappy changer machine - though I'm not sure metal ankle and wrist holders would pass the prevention of cruelty to children test.

  2. Oh and I can't wait to meet you too!

  3. yes I'd like one of those pills! x

  4. Hello! My favourite from your list is the weather one, oh imagine! Love the pic of you and your little man, he is gorgeous x PS I am following you now, check me out if you get a chance.

  5. Oh, why didn't I think of these! Loved all of them especially the weather controller. For some reason just recently, I have noticed the weather really affects my mood!

    Love your list! What good inventions....

  7. totally agree with you about the weather changing! I'd swap the dog walking service for taking my kids to school and kindy in the rain. The drying and ironing machine is just too sensational. I have heard it exists too but you'd have to see all your organs to get it I think!

  8. Great list, promise I didn't plagiarise your nappy machine idea! I'd like some of that dog walking action too please...

  9. Automatic nappy changer? Can't believe I didn't think of that one. A must - particularly yesterday when I wasn't really concentrating and put my fingers into some poo. Yuck!!!

  10. Good on you for even considering walking the dogs in the rain - my poor puppies don't stand a chance, lol :)

  11. Some interesting inventions.  I would sign up for the dog walking one especially as I have more than one dog.
    Lots seem to have various "get slim easily" inventions this week.  Like the dry and iron one lots but can it put away too please.  Weather - I like the surprises.  Did Listography for first time this week and really enjoyed it


I love to read your comments . . .
