Felling very lucky

I feel very lucky I was on my way to work yesterday at 07:15, I had just turned out of my road and gone a couple of feet when a drunk driver came out of nowhere and hit my car.

I really didn't know what had happened for a few seconds and then I had to try and get out of the car.
I got out and looked around still not realizing what had happened I could only see the parked cars I had hit as I spun out of control three times and the debris all over the road.

I went and sat on the pavement. At this point there were lots of people coming out of houses trying to  help me and contacting  the emergency services.

And then I saw the drives car on its side in a garden. He was trying to get out which he eventually did. He stood there saw what he had done and ran away.

He was found a little later by an off duty police man and arrested.

I spent the morning at the hospital I banged my head,And hurt my eye but its my good eye so I cant see properly. But I will be OK soon. Some people are not so lucky.

People really shouldn't drink and drive. The driver could have changed two families lives yesterday his and mine.

I really feel that god was sat in that car with me yesterday and  thank god that I am still here with my lovely family. xx

My weekend

I had a lovely weekend I got home on Friday and found this on the step

I had a good luck in the box and it was like a bottomless box 

I read the card again and again 
Really didn't know who it was off. I kept reading the card and talking to friends and family about the gift. 

And suddenly I remembered I signed up to 
https://www.perfectstrangers.co/I happens twice a year. I now need to get cracking on my gifts to send. Because I forgot about it I have missed the deadline but as long as my swap partner gets a gift.

Then Saturday 

We went out for dinner at Dough at gluten free pizza restaurant 

And then 

I have to say Mick and his group were amazing as usual.

Please leave a comment so I know i'm not alone xx

Deck the halls

We put our Tree up yesterday. Mr Tulip got called out to Lancaster to go and help those poor people who's homes were flooded. I couldn't quite get into the Christmas spirit of it thinking about all the poor people that would probably be homeless this Christmas due to these floods.

So I just put a tree up in the living room, I usually put one in the dining room and the hall. I will send the money I would have spent to a relief fund that I am sure will be set up soon.

                                       November 2015

We have been to Corralejo in Fuerteventura, and I have to say after travelling to all the canary islands this is my favourite of the islands. There was so much to do and lots of lovely restaurants  and bars to try every night. 


                                                July 2015

In July we went to Zakynthos in Greece 
One of our favourite Islands and stayed at the lovely Family Inn in Argasi. Its such a lovely unspoilt resort with plenty of bars and restaurants and only  short stroll from  Zante town, where you can sit and watch the yachts come into port. 

                                                   February 2015

In February we were lucky enough to go to Cuba for my birthday, And it didn't disappoint it was exactly how i imagined it. We spent four days in Havana which was amazing.

 And then 10 days in Cayo Cocoa which was just paradise. 

          Happy Memories of 2015
