What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived.
It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.

Car Crash

12 months ago, while my partner was driving out of a jammed up T junction to turn right, she stoped 1/2 way & checked for oncomming traffic. There was no oncomming traffic, as she moved forward a foot or 2, her car impacted on some crazy woman driving down the wrong side of the road. The wisdom of the courts (after a 12 month wait as the crazy woman had trouble getting her story straight) found the crazy woman on the wrong side of the road, should pay for her repairs, and that my partner should have been expecting the crazy woman racing down the wrong side of the road and that we had to pay for the repairs to our car.

The courts attitude to the expression of "let cost lay where they fall" is a very easy option.

Many years ago, a driver waiting to turn right to pick up his daughter, decided to cross my path of travel when I was about 4 seconds away from him. My options were either to travel in to oncomming traffic (never a good idea unless you can see there is no traffic), or clobber his rear end. Althought he cut me off and I had no option but to crash, the court decided to "let cost lay where they fall".

So if you get cut off by a crazy CD and crash, you will understand she just cutting you off before you do it to her!

What the heck

As you know, I love tight shinny clothes but never ever wear them together as it just becomes to much. Unfortunately this morning, after not being out for a while (and after HE and the family had checked out the beautiful clothes in Newmarket yesterday) I decided to be a alot crazy for a couple of hours. I did however revert back to my normal politely dressed self when I visited the shopping centres.
I feel the need to get out more as at this stage, I'm lucky if I get to spend 4 hours a week as myself and I'm getting bored with traveling out to East Auckland, maybe next Saturday I'll head north for a change.
