No, not that kind of rear end!!!!!
My poor VW and I got rear ended on the way home this afternoon. We had been at quilting and decided to do a bit of shopping before going home. As there are roadworks on the highway down from our place and one lane is closed while they work on the other, there are stop/go signs…..well, I was slowing down to stop but the 4WD ute/truck behind didn’t ….let’s just say I’m thankful I was far enough away from the rather large vehicles in front of me not to be the meat in the sandwich.
But still, being hit at 60-70km/hour by a 1 tonne vehicle whilst you’re slowing down and still doing about 30kms definitely isn’t fun. I’m ok…..whiplashed but fine…..I’ve been checked over at the hospital and they say I will be very sore and sorry tomorrow and probably for the rest of the week, but the guy driving the other vehicle was fully covered by his insurance so for that I’m pleased!
However, I bet my poor VW isn’t too pleased….
My shopping??? Well, some of it flew out of the back window onto the road and most had to go into the bin as it was covered in fine glass shards and we just couldn’t risk it.
The other guy???? He’s fine…..he cut his hand from retrieving glass from the road and his poor dog that was travelling in the back learned how to fly….he’s ok though too……
His car???? Not a scratch, dent or mark. It had a full steel bull bar…..not even the number plate was marked!!!!!
My hubby pointed out that it was lucky I only took hand stitching to quilting today and not the sewing machine as it would have been in the boot!!!! Ever the optimist, my hubby!!!! Gotta love him!
And it’s true when they say most car accidents happen within 1km from home!
But on the positive side………
I made 3 spice trivets or heat bags, whichever you prefer! I actually made them as spice trivets for my MIL as, being Italian, we often have the most amazing meals with pots of wonderful foods brought to the table to share. These spice trivets keep the heat from damaging the table and as they’re infused with nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, you can imagine the scent that permeates the air when a hot pot sits on them!!!! mmm mmmmmmmm!!!
So quick and easy…a great gift idea!
Well, I’m off to bed with the hot pack….I can feel muscles I never knew I had!
