Only driven by a little old lady to church on Sundays ...

Just had a phone call from my mother.

She was reversing into her church's car park this evening, in filthy weather and poor visibility -- and the gateway to the church isn't very wide.
Well, perhaps it's a tiny bit wider now.
She says that she's scraped the wheel arch on one side. She felt it -- says it feels horrible -- and she'll have a proper look in daylight.

And that "little old lady" quotation? She drives it to churches all over the place, anywhere west of about Bristol or Bournemouth and all the way down to the tip of Cornwall, and not just on Sundays either. And she drives backwards and forwards across the width of the country for various purposes related to having a boyfriend in Reading. So this little old lady does about 20,000 miles a year.

Still, at least when she had her bump she was travelling at about 0.0001 mph.
