I decided to open a box of mini apple pies, took one out and put the box on the table. I went to put the chosen pie in the microwave. I was gone about one minute but came back to find the box on the floor and Filipos and Reuben devouring a mini apple pie! If it were cheese or something it would make sense, but Filipos adores pastry and Reuben has copied him!
The dishwasher washed the dishes after the temporary repair. The new part should come next week.
I thought my microwave had gone wrong too but luckily realised my friend took the plug out to make tea earlier.
The temperature is forecast to drop to the low 60's in a couple of days, hooray!
