I had to go to a nearby town and on a quiet single carriageway road the car in front of me stopped sharply & unexpectedly without any indication of turning
or stopping - that I can recall. This coincided we me glancing away from the road momentarily. I looked up and instantly knew a major impact was inevitable. My 3 week old Saab then performed exactly as intended. The air bags worked, the seat belts tightened, the Saab safe seat worked and the entire front of the car crumpled as the designer intended. After a short period (during which I suspect I had a little sleep!) I opened the door effortlessly and walked unscathed from the car. The other driver was also unharmed. The verdict is still awaited re whether or not it is repairable.
I developed a stiff neck later that the day which got worse overnight. Result? Three days off work - but not fit to work on the house either!
You just never know ................................
Next, ahead of schedule, the drive is completed!
The ground-workers decide to press-on and make good use of the fine (very hot) weather and complete the drive.
After my three days recovering, I set to work laying the oak flooring in the Entrance Hall
