On Wednesday morning I had to take the car in for service and MOT. I booked it into the nearest IN'n'OUT centre as the Camping and Caravanning Club were doing a special deal with them. I arrived at my allocated time of 10.00 and was told to come back for it in 3 hours! Luckily the centre is opposite Ikea so I headed over for breakfast. I had a Teams call for work and then spent the rest of the time looking round. Not difficult to kill 3 hours in Ikea (in fact you could get lost for days in there). I picked up a few ideas, took a few photographs and came out with just 2 hand towels and a pot plant. Very restrained! The car passed with no advisories and it actually cost less than I was expecting as the synthetic oil was included in the price.
Took the Christmas decorations down at night and put them back in the loft. The Christmas tree is still looking good, though a little bare. I don't really know what to do with it now.
