Today started with my coffee machine taking its own life. As I have an emergency backup, I still managed a cup of getoutdahouse.
Then Mrs Wife offers to drive us in as 14 had an exam. The car broke down. We got it back from a service on Monday and think it's related.
Finally the kettle, I am reliably informed, has joined the coffee machine in electronic suicide. Maybe they had a pact...
So car's back in the garage.
Coffee machine repair organised.
New kettle purchased.

Would have been safer to grab the coffee machine from his old job
