Yes, believe it or not.

Sunday morning - an almighty crash. Opened the garage door to see my car buried in all the contents of the garage as four shelves fell on it. :(

Windscreen cost 260 to replace and still have to polish out some of the dents and make some new shelves

Wow, the windscreen must be worth more than the rest of the car? Or is it a new car?

It's my dad's old Honda Civic - still worth a few quid more than the windscreen.

3 more?

It was worse than that. My mum was staying. She is very sensitive about this car as it was my dad's. Anyway, the shelves crashed literally 5 minutes after she left the house. Inta and I had to dig out the car and hide the rest of the garage contents in the spare room and hope my mum did not choose to lock either in there or the garage.

We got away with it though.

Aw, bless. That's really touching. It's more like a pet than a hatchback, isn't it?
