Thinking of you, downsey, and so very sorry about the car. Speedy recovery to you, and I hope they can arrange a delay in your exams. Big hug.

It was great to meet you, and Harry Miles too. He's a tough guy - if I had dropped a rear leaf spring on my foot I would have had something to say about it :wink: 8)
