This prompt got me thinking - two years ago I had a crash - I was pregnant with Shaun at the time, I think I only had six weeks to go or something. But luckily it wasnt serious - it was my fault though, which was a total bummer. Due to the frequent trips to the loo in the night, and still working shifts, some twelve hour ones, I was shattered and not paying attention really. The day was 30th November.
Two years earlier, on the exact same date, I had another crash - this was a bit more serious though, in bad weather conditions I skidded out of control, mounted the kerb, and then a hedge, and then a wall, sort of ending up suspended in these conifer trees! Shaun was behind me in his car, and drove past - he didnt see me in my little hidey hole, my car disguised by leaves and things! Unfortunately the hedge and wall and tree belonged to a total A*hole. After I had dropped onto the pavement from the passenger side door, I was greeted by - 'what the bloody hell do you think you're doing???'
Err, well what it was, I really fancied crashing today, so I thought I'd pick you!!
What an idiot. Didnt even ask me if I was OK! He's there, with his camera, taking pictures! Did much to reignite my faith in human kind!
Its funny now - but at the time it was a total nightmare - I wasnt seriously injured, luckily. I narrowly missed a lamp post. But anyway, the point of this story is - dont forget to remind me, to be extra careful on the 30th November!! I think I might stay in that day.
Have a great day folks! Thanks for reading!
