Anniversary Mayhem!

So it was our anniversary weekend! We went out for a meal and it was lovely, we left feeling stuffed! The husband announced I could get the boots I had been after for ages (these) So we decided that Sunday we would go out and get them, and then go to the woods with the kids and wear them in!

Sunday was a lazy morning, we packed the car, oh so excited to get my Hunter wellies finally and Moo was excited for her McDonalds lunch! and then for some stomping fun in the woods, I said the husband as we approached a roundabout

What a relaxing morning we have had, its been lovely

Then, BANG.

Immediately I flung forward and hit my head on the head rest,Thor started crying, so I lept out, to check him, the pain was searing down my neck. The driver who hit us, ran over to me and told me to sit down, called an ambulance and we waited. When they arrived they checked me over, I was in a lot of pain, Thor had stopped crying and Moo looked on anxiously, they eventually moved them and the husband into the back of the ambulance as I didn’t want them to see me. I had to be put on a stretcher, the called for Fire service back up, for me to be cut out WOAH! I refused and told them in no uncertain terms were they cutting open my car!

I have 6 months left on it till I finish paying! No Way!!

We managed to have  little banter, and all the crew found it rather amusing about my Hunter story

You need to go to hospital Madam,

No! I can’t

Why? Where were you going?


Getting anything nice?

Yes, My husband promised me some Hunter wellies see.. Its my anniversary

OOOO lovely! Happy anniversary!

Yes, I wont be getting them now though will I?

Erm No.. You Need to go to hospital..


Cue tears from the 29 year old women!

We got out, I see the husband, give him a kiss and wish him a..

Happy Anniversary! This is one we shall never forget!

I went to hospital in the back on the ambulance, strapped to the bed, I felt sick, looking at the sky being jolted this way and that way.

When we arrived at the hospital they then said

Oh….. the coat….

I shout so load I make them jump

NO NO NO!!! Don’t you dare….. No, you see, my husband promised me some Hunter wellies, if you cut  this of, thats it, i wont get them, he will then decided the Hunter wellies are not needed, a coat is needed, so DO.NOT.CUT.THE.COAT.OFF

We are sorry but the coat needs to come off, and there is no other way.

Roll me, get the coat off, do what ever it takes.

We get the coat off, and it was excruciating, but I don’t need to but a new one so I am happy! The husband arrives and the nurse says he must buy me those Hunter wellies! It was now time for the x-ray,

Just a few questions, are you pregnant?


Are you wearing a bra?



Im in a all in one? crap!

Its ok I thought, one of the underwire bits was already out, so I will just take the other one out, easy. Nurse comes in with scissors.

Please don’t cut the thing off, do you realise how expensive these are? they hold me in!

Don’t worry lovely, first the coat now this, Don’t worry! we will get it off!

It came out no problems and the husband managed to eventually take the whole thing off over my legs, so actually the underwire didn’t really need to come out but never mind! A long afternoon in hospital on my back and a few x-rays later I am sent home with some bruised ligaments, torn muscles, sore neck and  back and a bag of pills. I am just pleased it was not worse and the kiddos were not injured!

It will definitely be one anniversary I will not forget in a hurry!

And yes I will be getting those Hunter Wellington boots VERY soon!

    Thanks.. to be honest I was not going to blog about it, But I actually feel better for it! The husband is off work as he is in a bit of pain today and I cant really do much with Moo and Thor. I am in a lot of pain still, and hoping the medication kicks in soon!

    Wow! You really have earned those Hunters! I’m so sorry this happened to you and hope the pain eases soon, but also so glad to hear you’re all ok too. It must have been very frightening at the time- well done for keeping a sense of humour! Take care x
