This winter there were lots of accidents outside as we live on a slopping crossroads. here's a car which got stuck. This went on for a looong time, maybe I'll post up more of this poor woman and her son we videoed (but shamefully didn't help). She did get a lot of passersby coming to her aid though, and to be fair we were out many times giving a push to someone or other who'd come to the same problem.
Not a very good picture, This is News Years Eve. We went out to toast the new year with our neighbour ringing out the old year and ringing in the new one with her bell which she does every year, and looked up to see all these tiny orange lights. This stumped up for a bit not knowing what they were till we saw another neighbour lighting a Chinese lantern to fly up and realised what the lights were. There were literally thousands. This is the first time we've seen this, everyone seems to have had the same idea at the same time!
We had one left over from the summer so let ours up into the sky to float with the other several thousand - taking our wishes with it.
Ok, here's another from that crazy mother and son trying to get free of the ice. In the end, after a very lengthy try, they abandoned the car to pick up another time.
A couple of months ago - a helicopter ambulance. I don't know what was wrong with the person they took with them.
I think in this case someone had got stuck in one of the gardens down at the bottom of the school field opposite. The firemen were called to extricate them. Then were locked in till the headteacher came out with the gate keys to free them - bet they weren't expecting to be the ones needing help!
For a dull and scruffy area we do see a lot of excitement out here. What'll be next to photo from our window??
