365 Day 229 - Blowout!

2013 started with a bang..but not in a good way. On Saturday Charlie managed to throw himself off a sheer cliff whilst chasing a bird. He fell about 12 foot and got away lightly with just a grazed chin and a broken tooth.

We decide to take him home today so that our vets could look at him tomorrow and if necessary operate to remove the tooth. On the drive back the left rear tire on the car blewout whilst we were doing 70mph near Bodmin, luckily a parking area was fairly close.

I changed the wheel but the spare was a space saver which meant no going over 50mph and a very long dull drive home. Of course all the tyre shops are shut new years day too!

the spare was under the luggage of course:

Glad you're all OK Chris!!! A blowout at speed is scary at any time!

Hopefully Charlie will be OK soon - even for us, it's no fun eating when you have a broken tooth. Keep us posted on this OK?

Welcome to my world. fence down through strong winds, leak coming through top of a window, and daughter flooded the bathroom, but on the upside this happened on the 31st, so 2013 has started good so far albeit I still need to do some DIY.
Happy New year Chris.

Sure Mike - will let you know how Charluie gets on.

Blimey Gary - maybe you had a load of bad luck left at the end of the year and you had to use it all up Wink
