Well it is morning and I did not sleep too well on the floor in the lounge room! But ahhhh I think I had better get used to that!! Before heading to bed last night I surveyed the damage a bit closer!!! I think they will have to re-do our whole brick work around our bedroom!!! Here are some close-ups of the damage!!!
The first photo is from behind the cupboard that was up against the corner of the house that the ute crashed into!!! No sorry no photos of the Ute in my house as I had the digi's with me! Might try to get some off the police!

OMG I think I am still in shock!!! You read/see this stuff happening in the cities but you don't normally see it your own back yard!!! I am so glad that nobody was hurt or killed! I am actually kind of glad that I was still driving home in the car because I was a bloody mess when I finally arrived at the home after the car had been taken away! I am so glad the ute hit where it did hit the house!! It took out the last brick support for the verandah and crashed right into the corner of the house!! The accessors will be here today, the real estate people didn't even come and see if we are ok!!! Bloody slack!! Will let you all know how we get on!!! Baz was due to go back to work today but he has extended his leave to help out in case we have to move out!! Hope we don't have to move that will be such a big job!!! I don't want to move to another house in Collinsville!! How GAY!! would that be!!! I will keep you all posted Thanks for the well wishes!! Luv Shaz xoxo
