Frightful? FRIGHTFUL? Blinkin’ treacherous is what it is! Had to nip out in the car with Joe, my son, to get some coal and wood for the stove the other day and very nearly didn’t make it back in one piece. Several skids, sideways slides (40kg of coal and wood in the boot does that, I’ve discovered) and near misses later we just about navigated the country roads safely enough to get home, only to get stuck at the end of the driveway… Joe thought it was a pretty cool ride. I don’t mind admitting, I thought it was pretty nerve wracking!
So, yesterday Joe and I ventured out again to the local shop to buy some supplies and this time we left the car at home, opting for an altogether more enjoyable mode of transport instead.
