Thank you Jennie for trying and hope something soon looks right  Wink
Brrr it is a cold wind today but mainly dry and some sunshine although there have been a couple of hefty showers. Went for a walk on the beach and our pesky little dog found some gloriously smelly seaweed which was liberally laced with rotting fish to have a good roll in. She has been dunked and shampooed but she still has the awful aroma. Not sure what to douse her with next  Rolling Eyes

I shall have to google line dancing in our area Vonny, I know there is some 'proper' dancing groups which I am tempted to join but need to check out transport as we don't drive/have a car.
Actually that is a fib - my OH bought a classic car at the end of last year; it is an investment apparently but I think it is an expensive new toy. Problem is that he hasn't driven for several years so he will just be driving the thing in and out of the garage and persuading others to take it for a spin!  As soon as it comes out of the garage all these blokes appear to croon over it  Laughing

Well where do I start... we were woken by the doorbell at 6.30 by a neighbour. Outside was a mess. A car had smashed into the side of ours and our neighbours'. Our car was parked parallel to the road but off-street. This car was almost perpendicular to it ( I still can't figure out how she managed to do it) .Our road is not wide and the two cars parked on the road on the opposite side were untouched. The police arrived, we had 3 fire engines to try and get her out of the car, the road had to be closed off because it's a bus route and the car was blocking the road. I just can't believe what has happened. The people from all 3 services were incredible, at one point there were 15 of them trying to help ( she didn't need to be cut out but her side door was smashed in and I guess she was in shock she was refusing to budge). She is fine (well she will be when she has sobered up)and was checked over in an ambulance and then taken in a van to the police station.
Looks like all 3 cars involved will be written off but we will wait and see. We have another car but my poor neighbours only have 1 and 3 young children to get to school etc.

Oh how awful ! Just quite unbelievable that the driver wasn't injured.

what a terrible thing Scrapmate -but sounds like no-one was actually hurt. Your neighbours maybe able to use a taxi and claim against the lady's insurance -tho don't know how payout works if she was over the limit -sounds like there will be problems for you all for a while -did the media turn up to hassle you too?
MY day has been very quiet - too wet to go out so did a little stamping then some spinning
Didn't know you were admin Jennie -Miriam sent me the password etc but I said I had no idea what to do with them so I think she may write a simple users guide. At least everyone is able to log in and use the site even if a few things need tweaking

have just deleted the unwanted photos but don't know if it will save the changes- I right clicked on the photo then went to view the element -there was then a highlighted line of text that I right clicked on and selected delete. And I don't have admin access so i assume anyone can try this -hope it has worked  Smile

Oh Rukhshana what a terrible thing to wake up to! Hope that young woman realises how lucky she was and what a nightmare she has left behind for everyone else to cope with. Always amazes me what contortions and acrobatics cars can get into and do when the driver loses control.

Do you ever smile when newsreaders say the car lost or went out of control???  

Shall be so glad when this cold wind goes away. It still has a keen edge to it.
I have finally taken up the trousers our daughter bought for her dad last November! Do hate hemming!

What an awful thing to happen - hope the insurance company pay out quickly - your poor neighbour with three children and no vehicle for the school run.

Yes I do sometimes smile when the vehicle is held to blame but, it won't be long before that will be a truth - self driven cars will soon be on our roads....... Rolling Eyes

Well done for trying to sort the photo situation Vonny and Jennie

Quite a mild night out so far - be lovely to to have to scrape the car windows clear before I set off for my Arty Monday session.

Keep warm everyone
