About 20 years ago I had an old Reliant scimitar which I was new to driving.

I went round a round about on the Redbridge flyover in Southampton nr the docks, a bit too fast and hit the concrete barriers spinning and damaging the front and rear of the car.

I patched it up with several David repair kits and drove it for a couple if years before selling it for more than I brought it!

Happy days.

Cheers James

Just seen this thread, as I've been 'well crook'. Mrs Stumpy put the bins out Tues Night, and Wednesday the Garden bin was missing. I was going to contact the council but decided to leave it a day. That evening all was revealed. Our next door neighbours' parents had taken it in, thinking it was theirs, as our neighbours are self isolating. Mr Neighbour was out on t'bike, and going down a hill, applied the front brake rather too vigourously for the greasy road conditions beneath. He locked the front wheel, and went over the top, breaking a rib and collar bone. To add insult to injury, he believes he caught Covid in A@E, although it was quite a mild case, luckily. My test came back negative by the way.
So the moral of the story is........don't put your garden bins out when the roads are greasy , in a pandemic.

I've had quite bad symptoms from Monday lunchtime, tested Tuesday morn, results back 6 am Wed. negative. A coincidence that my neighbour had Covid, yet I was probably much much worse than him , by the sounds of it, yet he was positive, and we don't mix at all, Don't know what I had, worsest I have ever been, but no cough. Mind you, he has got a broken collar bone and rib, so maybe evens. :wink:
