Gesmurft !


Crap . Verleden maand mijn eerste snelheidsboete gehad. Ik heb altijd wel een zware voet gehad, maar om één of andere reden altijd uit het vizier van de snelheidscamera's kunnen blijven. Nu is het ook wel zo dat ik in de bebouwde kom ook wel me probeer aan de 50 km te houden, maar deze keer zat ik met mijn hoofd compleet elders. En dan krijg je midden in de dag natuurlijk een vriendelijk verzoek om je naast de combi te parkeren.

I was allways under the impression that there is no parking fee due in the weekends, but the spaghetti of the ever changing Belgian traffic law must have been altered again.

I'm not going to pay this, no fscking way.



Mr Murphy payed us a visit yesterday; while driving into a sharp road turn, we encountered an old man who was planning to turn his car in the middle of the sharp turn. As his car was positioned vertically over the two road lanes, an accident was inavoidable...
I got away with a few bruises, but Martine had quite some pain in the lower back. We went to see the doctor right away, and she got some prescriptions for painkillers. The car is taken away to the garage, and tomorrow we'll know if it's total loss or not.
