Just recovered from Saturday's birthday bonanza. Three birthday parties one after the other starting at midday. An 80th a 50th then on to a 70th...phew! Thankfully I have been training for such events :rolleyes: Heavy gardening / landscaping again today. Potatoes and broad beans went into the new veg plots yesterday and the cats have been digging them up already....:(

Not a good start so far. Saturday went to London to consult with a surgeon about implants. Set of without the e-mail print out, oh dear, bad omen?.

 

Stopped at a service station on M1 for a meal but it was rammed, chock full with supporters going to the Man City game. Found a parking space well away from everyone else and trotted off. Place was heaving so ordered a burger (is that 'to go' sir?) and took it back to my car. There's a damn great SUV parked so close opening the door was difficult, nearside OK so sat in there to eat. Halfway through said burger SUV takes off, turned too early and catches the front of my car. Marvellous, wonderful, impressed I am not. After several imprecations relating to his mental state, parentage, IQ level and the need for Specsavers we examine damaged wing. It's not that bad he pronounces and thinks we can do it without insurance claims - 'a couple a hundred quid should cover it' he thinks.

One damaged wing, one headlight, one alloy wheel and he thinks £200? The headlight alone is over £1200... muppet.

 

Any road up arrived at appointment with 5 mins spare, apparently I need bone grafts to have the procedure I want and it will take possibly 12 to 18 months. This I do not want to hear.

 

This morning has not started well as I said. Now I can't remember who I'm insured with! Did it online and thought no need to print it out so didn't bother. GRRR this old timers disease is not funny...

Progress; the claim is in and a long conversation is now on the go. It seems Halifax hand over claims to claim management company. After jumping through the various hoops we came to the personal injury section. 'Can you lean back, bend to the side, put your shin on your chest without pain'? 'No no no. there is no injury'. 'Ah but the stress of having an accident may take time to show blah blah blah'.

I told her that I'm feeling very uncomfortable and she appears to pressuring me to make a claim and that it would fraudulent were I to do so.

Was that the end of it?, no, I now have till Thursday to think about it and she will ring me again!   What is wrong with these people!? I have had similar in the past but never this blatant.

 

One excellent piece of news. As of 3:30 this afternoon I was released from the  cancer clinic after 5yrs monitoring and declared clear of any trace.  wereno1

Excellent news Brew. Aren't they continuing your checkups any more then.? I thought my oncologist would stop checkups after 5 yrs cancer free but he said no we continue for life. Suits me fine.

 I go every 3 months with every 6 months an ecograph and Cat scan.

I must say I do feel safe.

All the best it's all behind you now.

Thank you nonna.

No need they say. They seem quite confident that due to catching it so early it has gone and not metastasised.

@Brew.  You certainly haven't sustained any whiplash injuries if you can put your SHIN on your chest!! (Unless you've dislocated your hip and knee joints). :wacko:

 

Pleased you've  now been discharged from the cancer clinic - you must feel very happy x

Thanks to all.

Although one tries to be a bit blasé about it, it is a relief to have official confirmation.

Morning! 

 

Brew.. good to hear you are 'cleared' of the 'Big C', but don't underestimate the potential for 'whiplash' type injury from relatively minor 'shunts'.  I got 'rear ended' ( Oooh -err Missus!!..) last year and was fine until the next day when all sorts of symptoms appeared, including numbness in arms/hands, sore shoulders and a very odd sort of anger/short temperedness which lasted for a few days.  It wasn't my fault so I claimed.

Strange day yesterday. (Mon)  Just home from my Mexico jaunt to find that Mrs Col's cousin had passed away from Cancer and went to her funeral Monday morning.  That whole side of the family seems to be very susceptible with four brothers and many of their offspring passing.  Not good. Then I got news that my wife's Brother in Law is in hospital and just operated on for some sort of bowel tumour.  He's 80+,   generally fit as a 'Butcher's Dog', regular cyclist and dog walker etc. Never sick a day in his life..  Latest news is he's doing OK.  His Mum lived to well past 100. Hopeful signs.

 

Most of us at the funeral were in the 70-75 bracket and it's a strange thing..  We're all now in the 'firing line'.. but mostly doing OK.  Assorted ticker troubles, strokes, cancers etc, between us, but we're all hanging in there. We count ourselves lucky that we've got this far.. and share a philosophical outlook on life. 'Don't worry..Be happy!.. and 'Do it now!!'

I was in a car accident a couple of years ago. My husband was driving and we were waiting to turn right when an elderly gentleman coming towards us ploughed straight into us. At the time I was looking left at some horses in a field when there was an horrendous noise and I was jerked forward. My husbands airbag deployed but the passenger one didn’t. We were in a zafira , he was in a smaller car but he wrote our zafira off, couldn’t believe the damage he did. He said he was only going 30! I had some pain in my chest where the seatbelt had held me but after being checked out by medics was told I was okay but if it got worse to go to hospital, my husband was okay. The next day I was in agony and had bruises on my chest following where the seat belt had been. The funniest (?) one was on my stomach, it looked like a smile! I ended up having 2 weeks off work but the other driver came off worse ending up being in hospital for a while. Our insurance company said the other driver admitted responsibility but suddenly a witness came forward and said my husband had turned into the other driver and hit the side of the other car, bit strange when the damage to both cars was at the front. We argued the case with the police but all we got was there was an independent witness and my husband was prosecuted even though the other driver admitted responsibility. We got a dash cam after that. I sometimes wonder if this is what set my husbands cancer off again as he had been 4 years clear by that point as it was a big impact.

I've just had another day spent largely in the garden catching rays, moving a few plants about and cutting the grass.  The weather here has been beautiful since I got back from Me-Hi-Co.  Not exactly sweltering, but certainly not cold out of the wind.  Today, I finally managed to get all of my holiday photos off the camera and onto the PC.  Need to get a few onto Flickr or somewhere, then I'll try to post a few without getting too boring.
