Hello peeps! First of all - thank you so much for your good wishes re. Hubby's recent accident - I really appreciate your messages. He is absolutely fine now - the head wound is healing OK - he is just awaiting x-ray results - the GP thinks his collar-bone may be chipped, but it isn't painful thank goodness.
