Glad all went okay Mick, you seem to have been well looked after.

Thereís nothing much you can do to stop the hair growing back. I had to wear an ECG for 72 hours and needed an extensive shave. I had to be careful which polo shirts I put on as some caught the fledgling hairs and made them itch more. Glad the procedure went well and youíre good to go for a few more years.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Good to hear that it all went well. I'm sure that Blackpool is very nice at this time of year for a mid-week break.

Take it easy for a few days and keep playing trains.

All the best,

Chris

Well, we've had some entertainment here.

At about 17:30, we had an ASDA delivery. The driver has since told me that their company rules are that the van must remain fully in sight at all times, except when delivering to flats and if it must be parked facing the wrong way, it should be parked so that no cars can pass to avoid them being hit by a passing car when accessing the side doors.

Anyway, he delivered two crates and went back for the other two, when a large, black, 4x4 appeared and the driver started telling him to move. We are on a residential road, not a main road and he only needed to get the two crates together. He tried to explain that he'd only be two minutes and she started shouting. Then her daughter appeared and started having a go. I went to the end of the drive to suggest that she either wait a couple of minutes or go through the next road. At that point her male passenger jumped out and tried to assault the delivery driver, but thought better of it when the driver took a swing at him in self-defence (and missed) and the woman started turning her car around and shouting that the van had CCTV (whereupon the passenger put his hood up) and for them to get back in the car.

In the midst of turning, she jumped out to shout again, leaving her car in drive and having it hit my car! I tried to get my camera on on my phone, but was too slow. Then she drove off, but I had memorised her registration.

About 90 minutes later, I saw her outside and went out. She was very apologetic and had already left her phone number under my wiper, but too late, the ASDA driver had reported them to the police for assault and I'd spoken to them on the same call about her leaving the scene of an accident.

The insurance company can chase her about the repairs.

Some further information - it's with the insurance companies now and the police are not taking it further, because she came back. However, we have since found out that she is the headmistress of a primary school! What chance have the kids got with staff like that?
