I need new tyres on my car. This can be a Good Thing, as I also need air in the front tyres, and I HATE putting air in my tyres - always worried that the gauge might be faulty and I might overdo it until they burst - (okay there are weirder phobias, don't judge me!) so new tyres nicely circumvents that problem. Hopefully the new ones will be right for another five years, or at least until I sell it.
I haven't had to install the new battery yet that I bought for my mobile. Ever since the new battery arrived, the old one has been playing nicely and holding a charge again. Typical.
