Coming Home

Coming home. It was 29th December. Imagine waking up and finding yourself in a foreign land, alone and partially paralysed. Many thoughts will go through your head.. But what do you do? That was how it was, in Slovenia. Problems with communication, so the only thing was to get back to the UK and get help.. One way or another.. That was the day just short of the Austrian / German border that our 14 year old 200,000 mile veteran Mercedes Van died.. Ouch. The irony here though is having faith.. I needed medical help, it was freezing and snowing and darkness approaching fast somewhere.. Not knowing as the Sat Nav also was dead.. But trust and faith regardless of the obstructions is paramount.. This was an ordeal and many ways a nightmare that was uncontrollable.. The breakdown could not find us, as I was to find out later the co ordinates were out and it just got colder. So you just have to stand in that place and trust.. Well done to the folk at the KrankenHaus Rotthulmunster for giving me treatment and yes, our NHS here.. We still have something which is more than folk get in other countries.. So please stop knocking it and be thankful for what we have, not what we have not…. The AA European Breakdown cover then tell me, that the Van will not be recovered.. You now have a diagnosis of Bells Palsy, taking steroids for 4 weeks and just 2 hours sleep a night and it’s a question of going somewhere in Austria and driving umpteen 100 miles for home.. Just not possible, even for a crazy like me…But beakthrough and thanks to the Automobile Association CEO, Mr Breakwell. The Van is finally coming home and free of charge.. Talk of blessings… It’s a miracle. Thank you and also all those who helped along the way Van
