  • What a week!!

    Well what a week I've had....

    Day off on monday due to working shifts over last weekend.
    12 hour day shift on Tuesday due to being short staffed, on the way to work in VXR tuesday AM a steel carrying HGV flicked up a large unknown object which smashed the windscreen.

    Late shift Wednesday

    Trip with work to Swindon on Thursday...13.3 hours, so another long day.

    Late shift on Friday although up early to sort NU out over the windscreen, promised me it was authorised and I duely took the car in.
    Garage loaned me a courtesy car as NU woundn't as it wasn't an authorised dealership!!!!. (see post in the Vectra section)
    Well on the way home friday night, I think I wrote the coutesy car off as I locked the thing whilst trying to avoid a rather large fox that wanted to play chicken with me, didn't see the final damage as I was carted off to hospital in an ambulance due to a head injury. put the car (Corsa) off the road but it bounced back and was sat on the verge, young couple who stopped and looked after me, so my sincere thanks to them, the young lady told me the front of the car is okay, but the back is totally trashed, I know the rear hatch window and the offside rear were gone as I'm covered in tiny scratches from flying glass. Wife came and collected me from hospital late friday night, bashed head, bruised left hand and an aching body. Been told can't drive for 5 days!!!!

    So all in all a pooh week... :?
