You never know what is going to happen next.
Almost two weeks ago now I was tootling along on my way home. A very loud bang and there I was in a field having done a 75% turn. Car wrapped in barbed wire. The farmer was there before the emergency services. a)to check on me and b) presumably to check on his fence. The vehicle that hit me had come out of a side road and has admitted it was their fault. Although of course all this was going on while I sat there in shock.
This is the Fire Brigade removing my car door to extract me. I was then carried to the ambulance by the Firemen and woman. (In every cloud there is a silver lining!)
After checks to make sure I was not about to expire I was taken to casualty and diagnosed with damaged ribs. As if I didnt know. By this time I was in agony. Far worse than childbirth. Told to take paracetemol 4 hourly.
So here I am. Alive. Pain of ribs very much eased . Very, very lucky.
