Hello everyone. It's been a very strange day Indeed! Apologies for not getting round the journal's to comment, but I will do my best to catch up over the weekend.Today, I got a call at work from Mister Man, who assured me he was fine, but had, had a little accident! I froze as he went on to say he had just crashed his bike and thought his arm was broken. I don't know who got the bigger fright! He was heading off to the local hospital to get It checked out so all I could do was wait.
He called back to say that he had broken his elbow! Ouch! Poor soul. As the story unfolded It was like watching one of those Strange But True programmes. You see, Mister Man had just got his new bike and this was the first day out on It. He had made a flask of coffee and planned his route. He was turning a corner and the bike front wheel skidded on some oil and he, and the bike fell. He got up as fast as he could and dragged the bike to the side.
The strange part Is truly unbelievable! My sis Rosebud and her man had decided there and then, to go to the exact location mister man had gone to, and as they drove, they saw the visor from the bike, two headlight covers and a mobile phone lying In the road. Rosebud's man stopped the car and picked up the Items, thinking he recognized them and on opening the mobile phone saw a picture of mister man smiling sitting on his bike.!!
Of course, they got the fright of their lives and looked everywhere for him, phoning all the numbers In his phone being careful not to alarm anyone. They even rang me at work and just asked If he was away on the bike somewhere today. I said yes I thought that's what he was doing and they hurried off the line! I thought It was odd but never got the chance to question It. They tried the hospital and my home, spending about 2 hours looking for him.
Meanwhile, Mister man had sat down In a quiet part of the country road, to have a cup of coffee as his arm was so sore and he had got a big fright. He eventually got back on the bike and headed for my parents house struggling with the clutch. He walked the last part of the way and was stunned to walk Into the drive, and up to the car, where my parents, Rosebud and her man were standing, He had said that he had just crashed and they told him they knew!
Luckily he Is In one piece. This could have been so much worse and for that, we are so thankful. We see It as some kind of warning and realise we have been let off lightly. It really does go to show, that we never really do know, what's round the corner!.
Take Care. Back Soon. xx
