    Morning everyone.

    Not been on in a few days, on Saturday I had left work and a woman decided she did not want to be in the lane she was driving in so pulled over into my lane whilst I was there. She drove into my drivers door and then carried in driving down the front of my car. Was scary as hell sitting there and seeing something get closer to you and you not be able to do anything about it. Then it looked like she was going to just drive off so I followed her and beeped asking if she would pull over. Eventually she did, she said sorry she just did not look, got her details but she did not know her insurance, so I got home, still in shock, hubby called her hubby and asked for it, he said he was in the middle of something and would call back in an hour or so with it. In the meantime I'm calling my insurance company to let them know, they do a search and find their insurance, then a bit later on her hubby called me asking for my policy number etc, I pointed out that the claim will be on theirs to which he said well we shall see about that. I said your wife admitted liability but he insisted nope, the insurance company would make their minds up on that. Also pointed out that where she hit me has cctv.so today I have to try and see if I can get hold of that as I feel that they are going to say I went into her, but if you see the damage to both cars, you can see what has happened. Also at the time I did not feel like any injuries had been caused, but later that night, my wisdom tooth cracked and part of it fell out.it had been fine up until then.

    How awful GF, that is really shocking. Getting the cctv will really help. I would also be cautious of them that's set alarm bells ringing for me, did you take any pictures at the scene?

    I had something similar happen to me last year they tried to overtake on a roundabout. The damage to their car was minimal but they tried to claim anyway and found out they had used a hire car for 26 days for supposed severe damage to the car. I had taken a photo of both cars as mine had come of worse and they didn't have a leg to stand on.

    So glad you weren't seriously injured, sounds like she wasn't even paying attention.

    It wasn't directly at the scene, after she hit me, it looked to me like she was going to drive off and ignore it, so I followed her, beeped and tried to get her to pull into a car park but she never, she seemed to be ignoring me, after beeping again telling her to go up another road (which happens to be behind the police station), she almost went up there but then gestured she would pull over in a retail car park which she did. I took pics of my car but the damage is minimal on hers and you can see what has happened and that it was not the other way round.

    I've called my insurers and put in the claim about my tooth and jaw/shoulder pain, called about the cctv but I cannot request that, only insurers, police and solicitors can. So now I am waiting a call back from them after they have discussed it with their insurers. Hopefully they are not trying to say I hit them and it will all be straight forward and sorted quickly.

    I feel like I should be doing something, after all my free time being taken up by the uni course, now I don't have to do anything I'm at a loss. Just waiting in on calls back from the insurers etc now.

    That's scary GF. I did once have an accident that I was sure was not my fault, but my insurers refused to fight it, they just accepted liability. I was crossing a residential street from one back street to another. I checked before I pulled out and it was definitely clear. When I was most of the way across someone went into the passenger side, really quite hard. My husband (then boyfriend) was in the passenger seat but fortunately wasn't hurt, the damage was more at the back. Thank heaven I had no children then. There were no road markings to indicate right of way, and I am sure that the other driver must have come down the road far too fast, but the insurers insisted that as my road was the more minor one it was my fault.

    Even the mechanics who did the estimate on the repairs were surprised that I was help responsible, it was clear from the damage that I was a long way across the road when I was hit so anyone approaching that I couldn't see should have had plenty of warning that I was there.

    OMG GF!! So glad it wasn't more serious and you're ok. Hope everything gets sorted quickly for you.

    Spent all night up with pickle and the morning at the gps. Poor little mite is having a reaction to something but luckily the reaction is only minor and we didn't need the hospital this time. Back home now and he is back to fighting his sleep and trashing the living room lol. Have to keep a close eye on him and if he gets worse go straight back or go straight to the nearest children's hospital.

    Evening all

    Hope you are all good. Had a busy clinic today, then got told I was on call which annoyed me as I am tomorrow but was not meant to be today, but turned out it was a mistake. Still no car so had to pick up a pool car from work, it's like a tin can even though it's a brand new car,

    Took Joseph back to baby signing today. We missed last term because the car going wrong meant I couldn't afford it. I'm glad we went back, Joseph is so much more engaged in the class now.

    Thanks Elinor.

    Been back to drs today as mr mans temp got to 40 last night! Poor little pickle has an ear infection for the 6th time in the past 10 months :'(. At least they remembered he needs the higher strength meds this time. Fingers crossed he is better soon. He is still having reactions daily as well.

    Morning everyone.

    Busy over the weekend people???

    Well I was having a fab night out on Friday night, was an amazing bunch of people I went out with. It as our instructor from the gym hen night, so was mostly gym people. We danced so much. Then when we went to leave, I went to get my bag and coat and my bag had gone, had my money, cards, phone and boat ticket in. We searched everywhere, someone done a search for my phone and it came up still in the area, we ended up going, and one who was staying over was going back in the morning to check to see if it had been handed in. The others paid for me to get back to the island. In the morning I checked on tracker and still in that area, so I then thought I won't cancel cards etc yet, maybe one of the ones staying in the hotel very close by had it so put a post up about it. I rang the club and they were going to look as well. After I got off the phone to them, suddenly I am getting messages to say it's been found and our instructor had picked it up in her drunken state. Phew!!!!
