Four years ago on November 7th 2012 I was involved in a serious head on car collision resulting in severe Pelvic and hip injuries as well as broken bones in my right foot, eight broken ribs, a punctured lung and deep lacerations to both my knees.

Originally in 2013 when I first explored the idea of ‘blogging’ it was to help form part of my recovery in that I could maybe help others, by reading my posts avoid the mistakes I made along the way to get up and walk normally again.

Naively I had not realised that while in the process of an insurance claim your life is not your own and therefore every aspect of that life is under scrutiny with or without your knowledge. I was advised against any activity, virtual or otherwise that would jeopardise ‘my case’!

My years of gardening previous to that terrible day have stood me in good stead and rather like the ‘veggies’ growing in my kitchen garden my journey back has seen success and disappointment in equal measure!

A long time coming but finally I can post freely. This is my blog!
