I am absolutely gutted to say the least. I can not believe I did it.

I drove all the way to TCR the other day and had no trouble. Drove all the way to the Isle Of Dogs and back even though I had no idea where I was going without any problems.

But, I drive out of my parking space outside my house and hit a post. Not just hit a post, I scraped the whole of the side of the car down it. So I have managed to dent the passenger door, the back door and the rear wing.

I was on my way to pick DH up from the station, rather than stop when I heard the first crunch, I carried on. I tried to phone him on the way to tell him what had happened as I didn't want him to just see it when I got there but he didn't answer his phone.

I cried my eyes out, the poor kids, I heard them whisper to eachother 'oh, mummy's crying' and then they were silent for the rest of the journey.

I haven't got the money to get it fixed at the moment so I am refusing to drive it for now.

Oh kid - my mum did this to her car, and I smashed dh's new car up on the M4 when it was only a month or so old. It's horrible isn't it. Lots of sympathy coming your way!

thanks guys, I will have to make sure I only go out of the front door so I don't have to look at the stupid thing.

Just had a lool out of the window as I was closing DD's blind. I can't see the dets from there so maybe it isn't as bad as I first thought?

Plus my cousins may be able to fix it for me a bit cheaper than the local garage, just have to try and get in contact with them now!
