Well, this morning didn't go to plan. My younger daughter was driving to work and had an alteraction with a bus. The bus won.

Thankfully, no-one was hurt and there were no passengers on the bus (or we could be looking at 90 whiplash injury claims), but it was quite exciting as it happened on a roundabout and held up a lot of traffic until the police came and managed to move her car out of the way.

I took my daughter to work afterwards, then spent half an hour giving details to the insurance company. Bye bye no claims bonus. For some reason, the music they played while putting me on hold was the theme to Game of Thrones, which is fine but a little dramatic for someone reporting an accident.

The people at the bus company seemed quite reasonable, so I don't think they'll be claiming for a new bus, just for repairs.

Here's a photo of the damage to my daughter's car:

I don't think that's going to buff out.

While we were waiting for the car to be towed, another car pulled out at the same junction and clipped a lorry carrying pallets.
