Friday 13th!

Saturday, 14 February 2009
Okay so I'm not superstitious at all - I even go out of my way to walk under ladders (although I haven't recently, honest) but last night I was just settling down to watch a DVD and get on with some stitching (DH was on a works night out) when there was a loud bang outside the front of the house.

It wasn't actually loud enough to freak me out but I figured I should have a look so I pulled the blinds back and this is what I saw:



The driver had failed to stop at a t-junction and had clipped another car and smashed into our garden!

We're all okay and I am trying not to think about what would have happened had he been going any faster as he may well have smashed into the house itself and Lia was asleep in the front bedroom upstairs.

Looking on the bright side, we've been wanting to get the front sorted for quite some time and at least now we can do it on somebody elses expense!

Oh God! Glad you are all ok, was the driver alright too?

I don't usually worry about the superstition of Friday 13th but there were so many accidents and disasters yesterday that I am now wondering.

Wow. I'm glad everyone is okay.
Have fun renovating your front garden.

13 is my favourite number, so usually Friday 13 is lucky for me.

Wow, that would sure make you stand up and take notice. Glad that wall and wrought iron were there to slow him/her down. Happy that you are all safe

WOW! Glad no one was hurt at your home, this is another reason I like living WWAAAYYY out in the country. I also like Friday the 13th...DH asked me to marry him on Friday, February 13th, 12 years ago!
