My parents were involved in a four vehicle pile-up on the M62. Thank God, they had their Angel with them (Daddy calls the Angel 'Toyota') and although injured and taken to hospital they are on the mend. But it made me realise how easily things could have turned out to be so different. Anyway, their car is a write-off and having got them home, I've been helping out where I could and more recently, ferrying them around. Dad has decided to start looking at new cars but he still swears that they owe their lives to the robust build of the Toyota.
I had planned to have our Christmas decorations all up and ready to 'switch on' the first week of December.
