A quick update on the case of the written-off Princess, but I’m afraid there is not much news. As regular readers of my blog will know, I was knocked off said Princess (my Pashley Princess Sovereign) as I cycled round a roundabout, the Princess was written off, and the driver of the car that did the damage drove off without stopping. This was in November, and I have not heard from the Police since they (eventually) took my statement in March. But last week I received a letter from the solicitors, informing me that they have served a court order on the third-party’s insurers. Hopefully this means the ball is now firmly rolling on my behalf, but I fear it will still be a long time before my claim is resolved, and I can buy another Princess.
In my last post on the subject, I said I feared it would be summer before I had replacement Princess, now I think it is more likely to be winter, or autumn at the earliest. In the meantime, I still cycle, and fondly remember my lovely Princess in her prime! Awh :(
