Thank you for comments. The 'accident' on the motorway appears not to have been a traffic accident, rumour is that it was somebody (a pedestrian) jumping in front of a lorry. How horrible. I thought it odd that there were no mangled vehicles when we were finally allowed to drive past 3 hours later, just the 2 lanes and hard shoulder all coned off and little numbered markers placed everywhere, with lots of police milling around. There was a lorry on the hard shoulder, with the driver sitting on the barrier looking shell shocked - as he would even 3 hours later if someone had indeed thrown themselves in front of his lorry. Poor man. My husband had a middle aged man throw himself in front of the bus husband was driving many years ago...fortunately, he managed to stop in time. He jumped off the bus, dragged the man out of the road and gave him a tongue lashing for putting a busload of passengers at risk. The man was apparently startled enough to apologise and walk away...Husband still remembers it vividly 40 years later.
Sleep no better, still up in the (very) early hours, I'm sure it will sort itself out soon.
All my books have now been sorted, with another 2 boxfuls parcelled up to go to Zapper - Ziffit didn't want them! I have left just a dozen or so I really want to keep, plus another few that even Zapper didn't want that will go to the charity shop. 3 bags of clothes will also be going to the charity shop today. I'll start on kitchen equipment and crockery next, we have loads collected over the years that we no longer use. Decluttering is very freeing and strangely addictive!
I continue to lose weight, 1 stone 3 lbs so far. I now have a 'thigh gap'! Not had that for years, always had fat inner thighs rubbing together before. Oh, and whilst sorting clothes, I found 2 pairs of Next jeans, brand new with tags still attached...I'd bought them I think a couple of years ago, they didn't fit, rather than taking them back I obviously kept them thinking oh I'll slim into them. Ha, they got thrown into the spare room wardrobe and forgotten about. Well, now they do fit! So I have 2 lovely new pairs of jeans that I haven't had to buy (ok, so I did buy them originally!).
Raining today, and rain forecast pretty much every day for at least the next week. Autumn is well and truly here....And it's October tomorrow, hasn't this year positively galloped by, and it's not as if we've even done anything, life has pretty much been on hold for all of us.
