I repaired the washing machine by fitting a new drive belt. Something I've never done before and will probably never have to do again. Still, even if I could have got a tradesman to do the job on a public holiday, it would have cost a bit.
I updated the operating system in the phone without mishap. Well almost without mishap - of the hundreds of apps, the only one I lost was the app with all my new year resolutions in it. Quite convenient perhaps.
I found and drank a bottle of Batch Number 6 (a home brew lager I made nearly 7 years ago). A golden sparkling lager, and about 3% alcohol.
When I weed the garden, I like to put the weeds in a bucket and fill it with water. It slowly rots down into weed tea, for feeding to other plants. A month ago I spread the tea around the bottom of the garden. Today I noticed the ferns and the ginger were as tall as me, and the bamboo is up to the sky like a beanstalk.
