Quite an eventful afternoon here - I had to track down the owner of a lost handbag and car keys a couple of walkers had found outside our house, find the phone number of the owner and ring them up (or as it turned out, her husband), return said handbag when a neighbour knocked on the door asking about it (it belonged to a friend of hers) and that was that. Or so I thought. A few minutes later the owner of the bag knocked on the door and asked if I'd seen her mobile phone, as it was still missing. I decided to go and and help her look for it, only to discover that one of the little old ladies lying on the ground beside their car in shock (there were four of them, who had all been going out for lunch until they discovered the handbag was missing). Two of them had got out of the car and the driver didn't realise the third was in the process of getting out and had pulled over to park, resulting in said passenger taking a dive onto the tarmac.

I'd to help lift her off the ground - twice, as she tried to walk the first time and couldn't so we had to sit her down again and get a chair and blankets. For a tiny, frail little lady she didn't half weigh a lot!

Ambulance eventually turned up and carted her off to get x-rayed, mobile phone still not found despite further searches of the roadside. In the middle of all that a rabbit decided to take up residence in the middle of the road, have to be ushered off by a passing driver and then hunker down in the lay-by outside our house for a couple of hours (making the ambulance driver have to drive around it) and then quietly expire. If a fox or something doesn't cart off the corpse during the night I suppose I'll have to deal with it tomorrow.
