I don't do this often...

.. but I am going to rant! I am so very, very annoyed at the moment. I just opened a letter that came today, I know it's late but it got hidden by a pile of ironing. It was from my solicitors about the accident I had last July. Apparently, I have to inform them of any days I am not available in the next 6 months as it looks like I will have to go to court about the hire car that I was given at the time. From what I understand the other drivers insurance company are refusing to pay my insurance company the car hire fees so I have to go to court to explain why I couldn't afford to pay these myself at the time of the accident. What you need to understand is that I pay EXTRA each year so that I am GUARANTEED a like for like hire car in the case of an accident as long as the accident is not my fault and this accident was certainly not my fault. I was stationery waiting to enter a roundabout where as the other driver entered the roundabout at about 65 MPH, hit it, span round and hit me and then he was prosecuted for drink driving. I just can't believe that his insurance company think that I should have paid out over £4000 (no idea where they got this figure from) in car hire fees out of my own money!! Like I have that type of money sat in the bank waiting to be paid out because of some other w****s stupidity. The upside to this (if there is one) is that I will not be asked to pay any of the money at any point, this is just to help my insurance company claim the money back. Rant now over, and breathe.

What a nightmare, and you are expected to go to court and help them sort it out! Have they said which court it will be - they don't want you to go miles out of your way as well do they? Far enough to have a rant, I would have too.

We had your Caribbean Chicken tonight, it was delicious.
