Unlucky Break

If you are connected to me on Facebook, you’ll already be aware of the details of my road accident last Friday, 24th September, whilst riding my scooter home from work.  If so, there’s no need to read on, but several people have asked for information, so here goes.  Also, if I don’t blog about this...
