Our entrance gate is no longer symmetric. The left-hand post and swinging gate are no longer in place, following a small difference of opinion with a car. Not mine; it was the chef of the restaurant down the road, who knocked on our door and apologised for having failed to follow the road and negotiate the turn to the left a few yards in front of it.
Not to worry, these things get repaired, although his car might be a write-off, on account of the (partially concreted) stone wall right next to the post. This also is not all quite where it used to be.
