Things are looking up
I managed to get the cooker working this morning. There are some lights that don't work, but hey...it cooks stuff and I didn't die when I turned it on. Here's some other good stuff that happened today.
Got some great presents for my birthday (really tomorrow), including:
"My Name is Earl" boxset, the laughter has returned to the house!
Starbucks coffee bean grinder and some beans to grind......now I can have great coffee in my living room.
Feeling pretty great just now (might be the coffee and birthday cake), and looking forward to the snow.
