Baby needs new shoes  
I've been putting it off since late last year, while deciding whether to keep or trade my car, but now that I've decided to hang onto it a bit longer I couldn't put it off any more and had to get new tyres. The tyre place is within walking distance so I was able to drop the car on Saturday morning, wander home and potter about until it was time to collect it.
And they are rather cool tyres (if you're into that kind of thing :-) )
Had to laugh when the sales guy was explaining their tyre rotate-and-balance plan, done for free every 5000km; I could expect an email, he said, in three months' time as a reminder. Considering I do about 5000km a year I think the plan might actually outlive the car.

Yesterday, the shortest day, was a day for reflection on life, and general contemplation. I kept coming back to this one poem, and the closing lines which clench my heart:

Love the poem; it fits exactly my own emotional/mental state these past few days.

It got to me so much that I printed out the last two lines and stuck them to my PC monitor at work.
