It seems I forgot to mention the bizarre hail storm that pelted the car on Wednesday! Felt like the car was being shot at (although I can only assume this as I've never been shot at, in a car or otherwise) and the accompanying rain flooded the bottom of my road.
Bizarrely the hail managed to last for 2 hours despite the temperature being around 18 degrees.
The other thing that happened that night was running over a dog on the way to Asda. Well I exaggerate, a dog ran into the side of the car when we were doing 30 mph up Norwich Road. I assume it was OK, Kath said it was just after she told me to put my foot down and not look back!
