Happy to be alive...

Sunday 13th February 2005

I was driving back from the shop today doing 60 up the main road when there was a huge bang and I could no longer see the road in front of me. I did my first genuine emergency stop.
The bonnet of my car had flown up in the strong winds we were having, broken free of its hinges and smashed the windscreen.
My two year old daughter was on the back seat.
While people zoomed past me at 70 odd on both sides of the road, I managed to wrench down the bonnet (now reshaped to fit the windscreen) snapping off the windscreen wipers in the process. I used the belt of my coat to attach the front of the bonnet to the front of the car and limped home at 5mph.
Happy to be home.
Happy to be safe.
Happy to be alive.

Tune of the day
