    and, like Brave, no romantic interest. The heroine has her own path and her own story and no fella.

    Moved back into a terraced house with the back gardens divided by stupid dirty great privet hedges. Twice a year they'd be cut and all the clippings booted under the hedge to rot down. The back gardens received attention about three times a year. I ripped up and burned the privet and dug the beds over and made the gardens a bit more open plan:

    Haven't seen the trailer. I keep thinking SLJ does any old tosh but there's a pretty good film on Netflicks with him as POTUS who crases in a forest and is helped by a young Finnish hunter.

    Lie on your bed when you call in, lie face up and hng your head off the side of your bed so your head's upside down. Makes you sound adenoidal. Works well if you're claiming 'flu, not so much with a broken leg.

    The cabbies reckon this is an Evening Standard stitch-up, not a word about this has appeared in The Standard whose editor gets paid £650k a year as advisor to a firm with a half billion pound Uber stake. It's all very murky.

    In their evidence, six of the witnesses made reference either to Ms
    Purcell continuing after the collision, an initial impression that
    this was a hit and run, or that she was not intending to stop. She did
    stop, but you might think that her reaction to the event would be
    something to consider when examining her awareness of her
    surroundings, and whether or not she had been or was distracted.

    One of the four witnesses the police considered irrelevant gave
    evidence that Ms Purcell’s car continued up Regent Street, that he ran
    up the street after the car which was stopped at the lights, and
    “stood in front of the car and held out my hand and asked the driver
    to stop and pull over – I indicated which way to turn the wheel to
    help her park the car”.

    He said that his first impression had been that she was leaving the
    scene, which was why he subsequently took a photograph of the number
    plate. Remember, the police didn’t think he was a relevant witness.

    Other witnesses referred variously to the car moving on, thinking
    initially it may have been a hit and run, and the car pulling up at or
    through the lights, suggesting a somewhat delayed reaction to the
    thing which she heard but did not see, but which caused a dent in her
    car bonnet.
