Lovely to hear you had such a nice time Chopper

Always nice to spend time with family

I just made the appointment to have my winter tires installed. I was going to get steel wheels, but the guys at Swedish Auto said I didn't need them. They are really good about trying to save me money.

So I asked about it at The Volvo Resource: brickboard.com. It's a forum for Volvo owners. All the replies suggested that I get used alloys as winter wheels, rather than steel wheels. They won't rust, they won't need wheel covers, and they don't weigh as much. And yes, having winter wheels is better for the tires than putting them on and pulling them off every year.

So, today I ordered the winter tires (Gislaved, made in Sweden), used alloy wheels, winter mats, and winter wipers. The used alloy wheels only cost $25 more per wheel than new steel wheels. w00t!

Happy Tuesday

This morning I am going to start moving some peebles and bricks from around our water feature in the garden as we are taking it out this weekend

As lovely as it is, it is a place for mozzies to breed and hang around, with water just there all the time and there are always so many of them out the back and they love me, but I hate their bites, so it must go!

We are going to replace it with a large plant or a couple of smaller ones and then cover the area with bark to match the surrounding area

Then I have to go to the shops for a stack of fruit...we are changing our eating habits to be even healthier

Then I am going to visit mum for a coffee

I keep a small amount of fruit on hand. I hate fruit flies. And they seem to come from nowhere.
