You may have noticed that sometimes I go missing for a while. It's nothing bad, just a need to occasionally retreat into my shell.
It's been a strange week, with Brett away for a couple of days, multiple minor injuries and a run in with another car. Well, the other car ran into me. It was nothing serious, I stopped to give way before turning and the car behind me did not. It's ruined our rear bumper and I am not game to open the back door, because it's pretty bent and I doubt it would close again. No one was even a little bit injured, Samara says that she now understands why I am so fussy about them wearing seatbelts properly. Insurance will cover all our costs, so all's well that ends well. Of course, this happened while Brett was out of town, so it was a sleepless night until he returned the following evening.
Oh, and the photo was of a 'bunch' of flowers, roots and all, presented to me by Joshua. He's a dear, but I can't afford to get too attached to my garden :)

Glad no one was injured. And, the sentiment behind the flowers was very sweet.

Sounds like the bunch of grass seed stalks that Naomi presented to me... a broad hint that we need to mow the lawn?!?!

sweeter than sweet - my girls have done that too...

Poor you! Getting whacked from the back is such a shock! I've been hit in just that manner - stopped for a traffic light, stopped for a give way sign (and huge stream of traffic), and stopped for a stop sign - and been bit for my conscientiousness. The last one was a young P plate driver who had already been booked 200 metres earlier for turning right at a no right turn sign - and then proceeded to run straight into me when I stopped at a stop sign. Good golly miss molly! Glad you're alright and that the good old insurance will kick in. :-)
