Friday night some friends and I were invited to Mike and Erica's beautiful (and recently renovated) flat in the Southside for dinner and champagne. Mike and Erica are getting married in a couple weeks and for a couple about to tie the knot, they seem calm and "totes" with it.

They made a delicious dinner of sweet potato curry (I think) and we finished the evening like total divas and sipped Vive Clicquot.

Ok, so a couple weeks ago, around 10.30pm, I was sitting in my flat talking to Paul on the phone. Outside I heard a loud THUD. Seconds later a woman let loose with a blood-curdling scream; a scream that I had never heard anything like in my life. I rushed to the window to see a man lying on the side of the road and woman being consoled on the sidewalk.

It was a hit and run.

The police were on the scene in seconds; the ambulance, however, took what seemed like hours.

Anyway, I never wrote about it because (a) I wasn't sure what entirely happened and (b) I didn't know if the man hit survived or what. Well, it seems he has survived but is in critical condition. The police and concerned friends are looking for help to find the asshole that hit him so please, if anyone saw anything call the number on the poster.

Now - for something a wee bit lighter: here is a video of wee Daniel, Paul's 2 year old brother, BEGGING to see pictures of Paul and I. Daniel is one person who cannot get enough of our holiday pics!
