Got my new tyres. And now I'm 14 kNOK(1 kGBP, 1.3 kUSD) poorer, :-(
But the sun is shining and I'm feeling sexy dressed in leopard print.

After breakfast at IKEA I drove to Fornebu S to exchange some books at the free library there. Then I took a walk to Fornebu Gjenbruk to see if they had any skirts, dresses, or jewellery that I couldn't resist. Didn't find anything interesting enough except a leopard print dress that was just too small.

Still it was a pleasant walk via the old control tower.

When I started driving to the sculpture park I noticed a tyre pressure warning on the dashboard. The rear right tyre was down to 2.5 bar, the others were at 3.3 bar.

So I drove on instead back to the tyre fitter. He checked and couldn't find a leak. Declared that it was most unlikely to be a nail or similar because the pressure was still 2.5 bar after driving about 20 km. So he tightened the valve, topped it up and said come back if it drops again. He always retorqued the wheel bolts which is generally recommended here after driving 50 km.

So now I'm back at IKEA, which is in the opposite direction from home, partly because I want to drive a bit to give the problem a chance to show itself but mostly to have what might be my last napoleonskake this side of September.

The area immediately surrounding the old control tower is park land with some artwork.

There is a pleasant water feature. Just the thing on a warm day

There is a couple with a small child, perhaps 18 months old, sitting at a table about six metres away. I can tell without looking at them that she has just started breastfeeding the child because he started griping and then there was that characteristic sound that a child makes just as it latches on.

That has to be one of the pleasantest sounds in the world.

I'm trying to use Yandex Disk on my mobile but as I can't read Russian it's a bit challenging. So I searched the web for instructions on how to switch it to English. The problem is that all the instructions for changing the language assume that you are starting from English. Not much use telling me to click Settings, and then Language, etc. because I have no idea what those words look like in Russian!

Well, I have to say the new tyres aren't showing in that outfit!

@22Michelle Thank you I 💋

sorry for your expenses / that is a lot

@robertsnj It's the price one pays for driving this kind of car. If I drove a smaller, lighter, slower, less comfortable car tyres would be a lot cheaper. So I'm not really complaining, except in the general sense that I'm sure I could find something more interesting to spend the money on :-)
