A Catch-up, and Christmas Wishes

Sorry for my lack of posting lately. I’ve been a busy little bee!

First, my daughter and I were in a car crash. That was pretty scary. The scariest part (after hitting the side of their car at 80km/h, spinning, and realising we were not badly hurt) was that the other people were trapped in their car, unconscious, and we thought they might be dead. It was terrible to look at them while we waited for help. Even though we were not at fault, it still would have been terrible if someone had died… however they recovered enough to start abusing the police later, and one was arrested. Another got taken to hospital, apparently with a broken leg — thankfully, that was the worst of it.

People were very kind to us, especially the staff at Ginger’s Roadhouse and the tow truck driver.

The really bad news was that our car was written off, so we’re struggling a bit right now. We were a bit dazed and sore and bruised for a while but are back to normal now.

Since then, I’ve been occupied with visitors from Germany. After a couple of years of chatting online, we finally got to meet a very special couple, and did the touristy, sight-seeing thing with them while they were here. We all got on amazingly well and had a heap of fun together, and it was very, very sad when they returned to Germany.

I am unlikely to write again till after Christmas so I’d like to wish everyone a safe and very, very happy Christmas (or other holiday you might celebrate) and I hope you all get a nice break and refresh yourselves, ready for a wonderful, prosperous year in 2006.
