Haven't been here for a few days because I went to see my son near Orleans. Drove up from Dordogne. I was driving in the dark and the rain on the motorway and there was a huge clunk as though I'd hit a rock. I managed to drive to the next service station, although the car felt strange and found a big pipe sticking out of the bodywork in front and half the bumper was missing. The breakdown man said it was a part of a lorry that had fallen off. Car is at Vierzon, 1 hour from son and 3 hours from home. They say it will be there about 10 days. That was Friday, got back by train this evening (Tuesday), took ages, car still in garage waiting to be assessed for insurance.
Couldn't post here from my son's as his internet is too poor. Could do emails, but the box for writing in for this forum was missing.
