    Badger totalled her car on Saturday afternoon (see pix below). It seems the brakes failed at a crucial moment on a bend and we ploughed into a wall and a Jeep. LittleBabyBadger was brave above and beyond the call of duty and still managed to flirt with the firemen. Thankfully we all walked away from the accident with nothing more than cuts, bruises and a touch of whiplash. Aren't airbags a fantastic invention?
    BMB, Glad to be here still.

    You poor thing! I'm very glad that you and LittleBabyBadger are ok and escaped without too much harm, crashes are horrible.

    Glad you are unharmed, but on the bright side. It was only a Daewoo. ;)

    Ow ow ow. Looks nasty BMB. I'm glad to hear everyone was OK and that only metal and paint was damaged, and the flesh and blood inside was relatively unscathed.

    Been to Doc this morning and am signed off work for a bit and given loads of painkillers... LBB and EDB seem to have got off more lightly.
    Not sure if firemen were pretty or not, didn't see much of them unfortunately, but they did give us a bottle of water which was very nice.
    In fact all the emergency services (and I think we were only missing the Coast Guard) were absolutely wonderful. Calm, reassuring and professional. The police have seixed the car pending a forensic examination so this is going to rumble on for some while, just got to sit tight and wait to see what happens.
    Must admit to feeling rather emotional and shaky still, so thanks for all your comments etc (except Rapier :tongue: :tongue: poor Daewoo!) and I shall just say I love you all and you're all my best mates. Going to have some time off so don't worry if you don't see me for a while.

    Ah, but we do worry badger! You're one of the few (no disrespect to any user) I can genuinely say 'tmp isn't the same without you' even if it is only for a while. Have another {{{{{{{{hug!!!}}}}}}}} in the meantime.

    Get well soon.

    Hope you're OK and soon feeling better, like Dave says the place aint the same without you BMB.

    Oh and I hope the Police don't find you were to blame, I can't honestly think that a lady driver would be anyhow.!

    You were certainly right about airbags, my daughter got out of her car with a cut on her knee..
    Take care BB3

    Hope you and all the other associated badgers are ok BMB. Looks like a nasty prang.
    Yes, good old Jordan for inspiring the air bag. :clap:

    Went to see my Remedial Massage Therapist this morning. Have done a fair amount of (non-fatal) damage to my neck, but will be OK with exercise and sense. He's an ex-paramedic himself and gave me a list of all the horrible things that would have happened if I hadn't had an airbag, given the impact must have been about 50mph.
    Cannot stress the wonderfulness of airbags enough. Although I do have a nasty bruise on my arm but at least it's not a ruptured aorta...
    Back to work next week. Oh the joys of VIth Form at exam time.
