Prandora bracelet and personal update

Hello lovelies!
Some of you may know I was in a horrific car accident on Sunday.
I slipped on black ice and my car ended up with the front held by a tree and the back suspended in the air over a stream in a forest.

It was about 10pm and needless to say it was one of the worst experiences of my life.
My car is a write off and frankly I am incredibly lucky to have walked away relatively unharmed.

To get out my driver door was blocked so I got out the passenger side, fell out below the car into a stream and had to climb out of a ditch and through the forest back onto the road to get help. I was soaking and muddy and in complete shock. Saying that I am very sore from whiplash and have bruised and cut legs, cuts on my chin and arms but I count my blessings.

I'm very upset about my car but the airbags and bodywork compression kept me safe.
I am housebound for the first time in 4 years and going though all the usual crap with my insurance company.

I am on major drugs to get me on the way to recover so Christmas is going to be a very sober one. Diazepam and alcohol don't mix.

This bracelet is so pretty Ive named it the Pridora bracelet.
 Pandoras are everywhere...I own one my lovely girl friends bought me one for my birthday. It has one single charm and I adore it.
But I know many people cant justify the cost of a Pandora...so here I have a solution.

 This is from Primark for £3 and I think its so beautiful.
I love the individual beads and diamante.
Oh and I love gold
I think it is a perfect stocking filler and certainly looks higher in value than its actual price.

 The only criticism I can make is its a right bugger to put on yourself.
You ll need a nearby friend/relative to assist you putting it on!

Hope you are all getting excited for Christmas!
