Tit for tat!

The car - which is only six weeks old - belongs to the farmer.   Although he insists on calling it 'our' car - he paid for it and I always think of myself as driving 'his' car'

Therefore I was a bit nonplussed last week when backing off the patio I caught the edge of one of my giant flowerpots and pulled a rubber bumper guard off the front of the car.   Luckily the farmer came and refixed it - knocking it in place with his fist - seems it had been put there for just such a happenening , so no permanent damage done (thank goodness).   However, he did tell me (quite rightly) that I tend to park too near the back door which does not leave room for manouvre.  (I can't dispute that - he is quite correct).

However, I couldn't help being rather smugly pleased this morning when he was mowing the lawns in the vegetable garden with his ride-on mower and he accidentally went a bit too far and cut off a clump of my white lilies (yes, I know it is a veggie garden) making sure they will have no flowers on this year.

At least it shows that we can both make mistakes.

Sorry for your mishaps
but I do admit, I giggled.

I had a similar incident with M recently involving him scraping paint off the car! Poor Polo - at least it was 9 years old when we got it.

It's a pity he couldn't fix the lilies by pushing them back into place! Ah well - these things happen.

Ahh, daily life can be such a leveler.

It's good to forgive or apologize, even if the timing might be a bit off.

My car has a few very tiny scrapes... I blame them ALL on Lady M.

Just hope there are no more such incidents (hope this is not tempting fate!)

I('m saying noting about the very long scratch on my car. I know how it happened, even if a certain person refuses to admit it.
