Preparations made yesterday of loading the van should have meant our start this morning should have been easy. We had the fridge & freezer items to load and the final things like pills.
It didn’t quite work that way. I tried to start the van to bring it closer to home and found we had a flat engine battery. So after a trip to our garage to pickup some jump leads I soon had the car hooked up to the van thinking that this should do it. No such luck.
We then decided to call for breakdown services. We have ADAC membership ( the German equivalent of the AA). Quick call to Germany and the UK AA were on their way. About 90 mins later we were started and then a quick check around we were off to the garage for some gas. We left at around 2pm.
We arrived at the school at just after 5pm. Spent 30mins filling with water from a borrowed hose. Then we hot connected to electrics and started the job of sorting out the inside. Finding places for everything. How we manage I am not really sure.
Now in the hall having a chat with everyone. Paid our fees and collected the program … Looking forward to the festivities.
