Great news!


I hope she's ok - cars can be fixed - do you have one of those courtesy car insurance ?

It could have been worse .

My wife has been driving to Inverness then Elgin every day for the past three weeks - two weeks ago a car overtook a bus on a bend and narrowly missed our car then last week a French tourist overtook on a bend and was coming directly at our car , if it hadn't been for Jen's quick thinking in swerving right then left the French woman would have hit her and so would the car that she had overtaken - our son was very badly shaken as was my wife - the tourist just drove off , didn't bother stopping or anything . It's that time of year up here I'm afraid .

As long as your wife is fine then it's only a hunk of metal , it can be fixed .

Best Wishes to you all .

Aye, no major biggie in the grand scheme. She’s pretty upset, though - the other driver started shouting at her, apparently. Understandable, I guess, but still a bit unnecessary.

Car is a mess, but can be fixed. Just could do without all this needless bloody expense. <sigh>

I know I know , it's a bummer and I'm sorry to hear that the other driver was so unreasonable , no amount of shouting is going to bring either car back to its original state , what sort of bloke shouts at a woman after she's been in a car collision anyway ! ****hole .

Cook her a nice meal tonight , reassure her that everything will be ok and that it's only money . You'll get more of it before too long .

Take Care .

Don't worry about the car, it can be fixed, just try not to mention it in front of your wife's friends at every opportunity.
With regard to the washing machine, you took the transit brackets off right?

They should have labelled the b*stard things, rather than making them look like a normal part of the machine.

Bathroom cabinets above the sink so you bump your head when cleaning teeth.

When you back a horse at 12/1 and it comes in at 28/1, but you realise you backed it with an online bookie that doesn’t do best guaranteed odds.

Find the term 'holibobs' irritating cos it sounds so sodding domestic. 'Peeps' is another.
