Those of you who follow me on twitter might have noticed that my journey home from work was somewhat eventful last night. details under the cut for those who didn't see live tweets )

Anyway, I just got a phone call from the driver's friend, who told me the driver's been discharged from hospital and the chest damage I was worried about was just bruising, not cracked or broken ribs/punctured lung which is what I was worried about. He's in a lot of pain, but his life's not in danger so hurrah for that.

In terms of thanks: people who tweeted at me and stopped the adrenalin surge turning into a meltdown once it was all over included: @MrsREJC, @zoeimogen, @abjtal, @A_C_McGregor, @shinydan, @LoyaulteMeLie, @DavidCloke, @SarangaComics, and poor old @vulpeculiar, who was on the bus with me LAST time I ended up giving someone first aid. I should also give massive thanks to [personal profile] matgb and [personal profile] magister who were at home for me with hugs and calm and comfort, and Douglas from work who provided support by text (we HAD been texting each other about work LOL). And a special mention for @BradfordBatman who had this to say:Coming from you, man, that means a lot.

You guys helped me to not have a nervous breakdown, given that I was pretty frazzled anyway BEFORE I got on the bus, so thank you. Although I'm not sure if the rest of the world will be so grateful I'm still here and capable of typing... ;) I'm tired and aching all over today, but I'm otherwise fine. And I'm really glad the driver is going to be OK.

.... O-o

Yesterday was something of an emotional roller coaster. Having spent Monday night gently corrupting the eldest Duffettling (he's only 14, so it was verbal corruption only ;) ) I got up on Tuesday and went for my awkward lunch date. Which started off pretty awkward and got progressively less so... Which was good, I think. But then I went back to chez Duffett to get my stuff and was on the end of a few phone calls which it probably would have been politer not to take in Helen's living room, and which involved me being berated and then apologised to and then discovering that my great aunt had died. Which was a bit unexpected.

So I'm a bit emotionally fragile today, and although I have had lots of hugs and a lovely breakfast, I'm still going to turn the phone off and relax for a bit. Relaxing, after all, is sort of the point of having a few days away.

Tonight is dinner with [personal profile] djm4 (with apologies to Hailey and Laurie for picking him over you, but I need to stay in my safe zone for now, I think, and I don't want to be fretting about meeting new people - sorry JQP). Tomorrow is lunch with [personal profile] ginasketch and then home.

Right now? Right now is back to bed for a bit. Laters, all.
