Isn't it a Ironic

This month I have driven to see my sister in Wiltshire, a 5 hour drive which  as there was just me and the kids it was all down to me, it was a relatively easy drive in terms of traffic, I decided on stopping for lunch via my sons in Oxfordshire which meant to our surprise we came in to Wiltshire passing Stone Henge which I totally wasn't expecting to see just there on the side of the road. We had a lovely weekend and was really looked after. It was bank holiday weekend and my original plan was to come back on the Monday but the drive down had taken it out of me and I needed to go back Sunday to give me a day on Monday to recover.

My OH and I were then going to a funeral in South Wales, again a 5 hour drive but at least it was a shared drive which wasn't too bad. I've seen the services on the M42 way too much this month.

On Friday evening I had been to pick T's boyfriend up and decided to call into a retail park on the way back as T really didn't have anything to wear for a family communion on Saturday which meant I came back home a different route to the one I normally take. Driving through a village about 5 miles from home a huge 4x4 in front of me pulled over to the right to park up I carried on driving and he just  pulled out on me and hit me. He was very apologetic and admitted responsibility, he just didn't see me.

The ensuing calls to insurance the next day, my car was deemed undrivable, hire car sorted, my thoughts were how ironic you drive all those miles and you end up having an accident so near home.
