Dodging The Showers On The Way Home…

My archive posts of our 2013 German adventures have come to an end.

We’ve apologised for the chaos we’ve caused in our friends formerly neat and tidy Frankfurt appointment and said sorry in advance for any stray Lego pieces left behind that they may stand on in the middle of the night …

…(although to be fair, Little Mr was fairly scrupulous in his efforts that none of his very precious Lego “babies” went astray).

He even willingly wiggled under their furniture in his quest that “No Lego Piece be left behind” so even if he didn’t turn up any errant pieces, their floors got an extra polish as an extra bonus.

I observed as we  added some Frankfurt foodstuffs to our already crammed vehicle that although the weather report promised heavy rain on the way home, that even if it unexpectedly snowed we were well prepared, with food and blankets enough to see us though any blizzard. It was one of these days where there are patches of blue sky in amongst the grey and when the blue sky is above you and yet you are quietly getting drizzled on.  We got on the road and headed homewards.

Just before the Dutch border we were hit by a sudden cloudburst and the traffic sprayed water all over the road, then it cleared and skies were blue again, but just as we were in the home stretch and almost back in the Hague the heavens opened once more.

We all laugh and conclude “autumn Dutch weather as usual then”…  I suppose that’s the best welcome home you can get…
