hi every one, i've had the week from hell.. Tuesday the hand brake failed on my husbands work van and it ended up in a ditch, hubby stopped on a hill when he thought he'd hit something and almost got run over by it when he got out to check. Wednesday our boiler broke. And Thursday afternoon after taking mum, Baby Ewan and myself christmas shopping on our way back a motor bike heading towards us started to over take another car and lost control of his bike, and we had a head on crash with the bike, i tried to swerve and avoid it, but ended up in the hedge, the air bags activated, and i lost alll brakes as the bike had ripped the cables off in the impact, i couldn't understand why the wouldn't stop. the car filled with smoke/talc from the air bags and i thought car was on fire. mum was shouting asking if i was ok, ewan was screaming, i said just get out iof the car, passers by helped mum get out of the door as it was in the hedge and i hadto get ewan out from the other side as he was on the passenger side. i was terrified ewan was hurt, and i thought i'd killed the biker, as i went over the top of his bike. the ambulance checked Ewan and he was given the all clear, he was smiling at the paramed! and he loved the police lights. All i can say is thank god he was in a good car seat, it did its job. But we all waliked away unhurt including the biker. gods know how he really cheated death that day! So i've lost my christmas spirit but glad we are all ok. i think i would have gone mad if i'd lost my mum and ewan in the accident. As you can see from the pics my car in a write off, but we have now bought a frontera 4x4, as i am not working we couldn't afford to get a equivalent car again, which is a shame as i really liked my skoda! we are a bit stiff post accident and i've got a very bruised boob which so far hasnt affected breastfeeding. think we all got away very lightly. Anyway i hope you all have a better christmas!
