A lorry, towing a huge trailer filled with weighty scaffolding poles, had jacknifed across the dual-carriageway and the trailer hit Harry, who was going quietly on his way in the opposite direction. It completely ripped away all the passenger side of the car. Thank God Claire and the kids weren't with him. He is very sore - those airbags make their mark, but where would he be without them?
We finally got him home just before midnight. I think he'll feel worse today when the bruises come out. He'd only just got back on the road after a previous accident - also not his fault. It is odd as he is the safest driver I know. Does make you realise what is important, though.
We will pop in with shopping for them later but in the meantime, I must finish packing for Oz. My cousin is coming to house and cat sit tomorrow and then we are off.
I have packed my little printer and am looking forward to making up some sketchbook pages. I made the sketch book, gave it a light colour spray and used a pipecleaner to bind it.
Thanks for comments - particularly on the books. Welcome to Gwyneth - we had such a lovely time with you in Scotland.
Sue - glad you liked your comment being shown in the book.
Hope the garden survived Maybird
Will try to post from down under and hope to see some of you at the Perth show.
