Sunday 13th Jan, we all got up early and went skiing, which was nice. We met up with a few other people, and although freezing and snowing managed about 3 hrs decent skiing. #1 is amazing, now; #2 getting there, and #3 makes up for lack of style with fearlessness. To the point of danger. Ah well. After getting home, I managed to sneak off for a 3 set UB, and then cooked roast joint of lamb for dinner. Yum. Then the car crash. More on that in a sec.
Today, Monday 14th Jan, Dog and I did 9.1k. On the way out, I tried to stop Garmin for Dog's ablutions, but unfortunately did not press the right button. We therefore did 26 mins out, 23 back, but more like 24 out I think. 2x chair. 30 mins on the static bike with 15 second sprints.
Mrs R and I were coming back from the Country Place last night - it was dark and raining, and I was in the truck and Mrs R had all the bags, kids and Dog in her car. I was about 10 mins ahead as she comes to pick me up from my parking (about 1km from our apartment), and then drops me, the bags and kids off at the apartment before parking her car (about 500m from the apartment, the other way). You can see how complex things are...anyway. I received a call just as I reached my parking from #2 who was hysterical. Someone had driven into the back of their car. So I drove back to them, instructing them to call the police - for the their safety as much as anything. I arrived at the same time as the Police. Turns out it was a big impact, but Mrs R's car (a 4x4 Volvo SUV) was virtually untouched. The poor chap's BMW saloon was absolutely totalled. Everyone had had a big shock, and noone was hurt, although the chap who had crashed into Mrs R claimed it was her fault. Difficult to claim, as she was stationary in a traffic jam at the time. The Police breathalised everyone to make sure noone was drinking - they weren't, and then made everyone fill in some forms, and we went on our way. The kids calmed down eventually, although Dog had been thrown off the seat and was a bit shaken up. Mrs R was a bit keyed up when we got home, but I think she'll be ok. We'll get the car checked to make sure no damage, and maybe inform our insurance company in case the other guy claims against us, but I think other than that we should be ok.
An eventful weekend!
