Firstly the driver, he's being charged with driving without due care and attention but according to "victim support" who I really didn't think I needed a visit from the police are putting a suspension of sorts on the drivers license until he gets his eyes tested and suitable note from his doctor to say he's fit to drive.
I also asked how I'd get a bike with bent forks, buckled wheel, cracked A-frame, damaged crank with a broken arm to a bike shop, after 5 minutes of being on hold the idiot told me to send in a receipt of original purchase and I'll get a full refund it was agreed new helmet and lights too...what a hassle for a small amount.
Some suggested (including victim support) I should sue. Nope, I've done it before when I was hit head on by some idiot whilst I was driving a van, I got a huge six figure (sadly hundreds of thousands not millions) payout and placed on a database of personal injury claimants, bet you didn't know insurance companies did that, this in turn made it/makes it hard to get cheap insurance. It actually as a driver made it hard for me to find employment after I got better as it was flagged up by the insurance company of potential employees and in turn increased their insurance bill.
My boss came round with my personal bits n bobs from the cab of my lorry, no it wasn't to check up on me, he's a good boss and had arranged through our companies health care programme some private physio, the first appointment at our local hospital went OK with a nice looking Portuguese woman. I have one today but seeing as a lady is being currently tested for Ebola at our hospital it should be interesting....look out for a moon walking Douglas if there's a lot of media hanging around:-)
To be honest I'm going stir crazy, I prematurely blitzed my record collection in the first few days. The TV is driving me bonkers to the point during the days I'm spending time either walking my greyhounds one at a time over the local park, watching a solitary female Goosander. Or sat in the shed.
Obviously the rest of my time I spent in the shed watching the birds at first but couldn't resist trying for some images. I have very little movement in my arm and trying to lift even the light 300mm,f2.8 is impossible without agony.
My next post will be about interesting things to do whilst suffering from Cabin fever, apart from Moon walking.
