I know it's only 3 weeks since I wrote that I don't do Facebook. I caved in today. The persuading factor was to view photos of my niece Helen shopping in snowy London in a bikini. It's true and she has photos to prove it.
I've also made contact with an old school friend who was responsible for me wearing a sari to a school dance in 1978 (ish) and who now lives in Malaysia.
I can see how it is a sticky site. I will try not to neglect this blog.
I've had two very conciliatory phone calls from the insurance co. I think they may be going to cave in too - and pay me the $2000 extra for my car that I threatened to take them to the Ombudsman over. They say there will be a decision by the end of the week. Watch this space.
