You see the lovely lady and I went away for the weekend and it became rather eventful. On the Thursday evening (the first night of our adventure) an elderly lady drove into the back of our stationary car forcing us forward about 3 car lengths. I have no idea how fast the elderly lady was driving but I do know that the Police Officer attending the accident stated that it was, "not a low impact collision." I also know that as I watched her approaching, in my rear view mirror, I only had the time, from the moment I saw her approximately 100 metres away until the moment of the impact, to disengage the handbrake. Then on the Saturday morning the lovely lady discovered that her identity had been stolen and the contents of her bank account emptied.
In any normal situation that would ruin the weekend but in a strange way it made it for me. As I stood, at the side of the roadside, watching the lovely lady tender to the elderly lady, even though she was in a great deal of pain herself, I thought to myself, "this is why I think you're wonderful." As, I watched her yesterday worrying about how she was going to pay the rent, and take the kids on holiday, I thought to myself, "this is why I want to be with you." And as I sit her now I can only be thankful for the fact she also wants to be with me.
PS It maybe hard to believe but, between the accident and the theft, we also managed to have some really great times and I am sure that I will blog about them another time, but for now I'm going to bed!
