Had quite a shocking day yesterday, as I heard that my brother Peter and family – Chris, Caitlin and Brianna – were in a horrible car accident on the South Eastern freeway near Murray Bridge. Thank goodness they are all alive and kicking and not in quite as bad a way as I first thought on reading the news item, which said that Caitlin was injured and that Chris had been air-lifted to Flinders hospital with life-threatening injuries. It was rather tense here for a few hours during which I couldn’t get in contact to find out what was happening, but I’m sure it was much worse from their end. Everyone is now stable, apparently with some cuts and internal bruising, and after a night in hospital for observation they will all be reunited at home (except for the car, which makes its sad journey to the great car park in the sky). Hopefully my nieces will not suffer lasting shock from the experience. Lots of love and well-wishing coming your way Monks.
Now will anyone join me in supporting my car-free world manifesto??! (don’t worry Payne family I won’t make you sign it)
