Pat E - hope you're all OK now and reassured by the tests.
We get our winter tyres fitted once temps get down to 8C and below on a regular basis. They give better grip in winter wet and, of course, when it's icy or snowy - an excellent safety system for us as gritting can be very hit and miss here and if it does snow heavily we have to rely on the farmers to shift it from our country roads.
B3 - our fridge door fell off a few months ago and we ended up with a new fridge because a whole new door and its housing was ridiculously expensive. Pain in bum and wallet!
We have two filter coffee machines on the go - one for leaded and one for decaf for after midday. Brew a pot and turn off. Microwave a mugful as needed so it doesn't get stewed.
It is still cold and wet out there. I got soaked just going from SM to car - all of 30 metres - and Rasta doggy came back from walkies looking and smelling like a wet, woolly sheep. Hair cut on Saturday should sort that out.
Possum's kitchen curtains now done. Using spare fabric to cover kitchen chair cushions. I'd forgotten what a pain it is making the ties.
The forecast for tomorrow is dry but cool. Typical. I have patchwork class all day.
