Spent the morning at the Remembrance Day service with my daughter who is in The Brownies then a good few hours down my allotment with my mum in the afternoon.

Then taking my mum home I was waiting to turn right at a junction when there was a loud skidding of tires followed by a massive impact to the back of my car. When we came to a halt again about 60 foot further down the road leaped from the car, looked back to where the car that had hit me was sitting with almost no front end and pissing liquid all over the road.

Severe lower back pain so I rested against my car and stayed there til the ambulance and fire brigade turned up. They put me on a spine board, immobilised my head, lifted me onto a stretcher and into an ambulance.

The other woman had her car roof cut off and lifted out then loaded into another ambulance.

They eventually decided I had no spine fracture and let me go home, aching like f*** just about everywhere, my mum has whiplash and a concussion.

My car (a Mondeo) came off considerably better than her Ka, but the boot is deformed, possibly a back door, haven't had a good look at it yet. Going to be a fun morning on the phone to my insurance and finding somewhere to work out exactly what is wrong with it. At least my dad was able to drive it home and avoid the hundred odd quid it would have cost for the police to remove it.

Christ but I ache. Sore neck, shoulders, back, bruising across my chest from the seatbelt. But nothing that won't heal shortly enough.
