I wanted to start off this post saying how much I am looking forward to autumn. In typical blogger style, it is my absolute favourite season. Don't get me wrong I enjoy the warm weather when I can sit by a pool and sip a cocktail, but its not so fun when I am a sweaty hot mess on a bus or at work. So I wanted to spend the whole post where I wax lyrical about chunky knit jumpers, hot chocolate and cosy autumn catch ups (and there will be some of that tomorrow I promise)
Then yesterday on my way home from the gym we were driving down a dual carriageway when an elderly man turned right into the oncoming traffic and straight into the passenger side of the car (where I was) Both air bags went off with a horrendous bang and then strangely for a moment everything felt calm. I can't really explain it, but I looked over at Tom and he was looking at me and it was like for a few moments we knew whatever was to follow we were both alive and not seriously injured. I climbed over the drivers side and went to see if the other driver was OK. I wanted to be angry but I was confronted with a confused old man and so I think my nursing instinct kicked in and I managed to get him out of the car and out of danger. He went to the police station and surrendered his licence.
After spending a few hours at A&E being checked over we were both sent home, Tom with a possible scaphoid fracture and me with a lot of bruising and soft tissue damage. My mind keeps going to the what ifs, but I am just so happy to be alive.Im sore, but have a stash of painkillers and so lets get on with October. My goal is to spend my time working on my mind, body and soul and spending as much time as I can with people I love. Especially my husband, as after going through that I am so grateful.
