August 14, 2009

Hi folks.
Chas and I had a fab day at my sister's today - Charlie and his cousins had a ball on all the old-fashioned rides, and then spent a merry afternoon on the beach, riding donkeys, flying kites and building sandcastles. The weather wasn't great, but at least it didn't rain! (Please excuse the rather poor photos - I forgot my camera, so these are from my mobile phone... only eight more weeks until I can get my iPhone - yippeeee!!)The only dampener on the day was on our way home - we'd just left my sister's house, driving happily along a main road, when a man waiting to pull out of a side road decided not to wait for us to pass him before he put his foot on the gas. Doh. He gave the passenger side of my car a real bash, and caved in the rear door and rear wing, as well as putting a pretty decent-sized scratch on the front door too.
Charlie and I are both fine - thank goodness - and two lovely people both stopped to say they had witnessed the accident and said that it was completely the other driver's fault. They both gave me their details in case the insurance company needs to contact them.
Anyway - I've spoken to my insurance company, and they'll be coming to pick up my car soon, and will be leaving me with a courtesy car until mine is fixed.
No big deal in the grand scheme of things, but it's just one annoyance I could have done without. But let's look on the bright side, eh - at least they'll probably valet my car before I get it back!!
