I'm feeling very lucky at the moment that I'm at home and able to write this
message. My brother and I were in quite a serious accident this evening. We
were traveling to see a comedian in Belfast and were on a back road and came
round a corner and suddenly the car started sliding as a patch of the road had
just been surface dressed and had loose stones all over it. The car kept going
until we were facing the way we came and then kept going over the hedge and down
a big drop and rolled twice before stopping on its roof. I just couldn't believe
it had happened! Thankfully we were both relatively OK - my brother is actually
fine, not a scratch on him! I have a couple of cuts on my face and my hands are
cut all over them but it's my shoulder that's causing the most discomfort at the
moment as I felt it hit off the ground on one of the rolls. Thankfully no broken
bones or torn ligaments - I went to A&E and they x-rayed my shoulder and face
and patched me up. A few paper stitches on my face and I have to wear a sling
for a few days.
We are both so so lucky to be alive!
