A rubbish start to 2019

2019 has not quite got off to the start that I had hoped it would. Today, like any other day, I left the house and went for a walk whilst my partner rang on his lunch break. We usually have a little catch up and it encourages us both to get some exercise whilst we walk and talk.

Today I was chatting away completely oblivious to the events unfolding on the other end of the phone. All of a sudden there was a lot of muffled voices. I asked my partner what was happening only for him to reply with ‘a motorbike’s just hit me’.

At this point I’m not quite sure how my legs didn’t buckle from underneath me. We were both in shock and he was talking to the people around him.

Eventually he told me he was okay, it was just his knee and ankle that hurt. He had been crossing at a zebra crossing, he saw the bike in the distance and thought it would stop so he began to cross. The next thing he knew it had hit him. Said bike driver then drove off.

My partner has given a statement to the police and assured me that he’s okay, just in a lot of pain with his ankle. I won’t be able to settle until he’s home and I can see with my own eyes that he’s okay. I hope that he’s being truthful with me and not trying to play it down because he knows how worried I am.

I thought that sitting down and writing about it might help to calm me, and it has. There’s nothing worse than being miles away on the other end of a phone and hearing something like that happen to someone you love.

I hope everyone else is having a better day!

      1. I also suffer from anxiety. I get scared of doing things because I think I’m already going to fail. It makes it hard to enjoy the things I usually do. Sometimes I can power through it; sometimes I can’t. Thanks for letting me share. Also thanks for liking my Some Much Needed Rivalry post.

      2. You’re welcome ☺️ I’m glad you felt like you could share! You’re not alone, we all either feel like this or different variations of this!


  1. Thank God he’s ok. Same thing happened to my hubby few years ago, a lorry hit him and drove off. Really makes your heart belly flop when you get the call. At least he has someone like you to look after him and I hope they find the a hole that done it xxxx

    1. It’s so scary isn’t it 😫Worst feeling in the world hearing that something has goodness to a loved one. Fingers crossed they find him 🤞🏼xxxx


    1. He’s been in a lot of pain and has found that it’s had quite an impact on him in terms of mental health. He’s also now not allowed to cross any roads on his lunch break haha. Thank you for your comment 🙂


  2. Well done for being so brave. Your honesty is refreshing! Sadly some people just don’t understand mental health:( on the plus side, that photo of you with the oasthouse in the background is fabulous! How glorious! I live in Kent too! Keep up the blog! Xxx
