I am on medical leave from work, and there are certain rules and restrictions that apply to staff members in my situation.

One of them is that I am not allowed to take annual leave, another is that I may not leave the Netherlands without permission.

Last year my outings were therefore few and restricted to weekends.

After several difficult months full of medical appointments and a few social engagements, all of them in our home, I was feeling more than a little house bound.

Little Mr was due to go on a camping trip to Belgium and since we now have a large car, we offered to drop off a few extra children as well.

Although the camp-site the kids were booked at was only ten kilometres over the border, I did not have permission to leave the Netherlands so we found a compromise that would please everyone. The children were to be there after school on a Friday evening, Himself would drop me off at the last Dutch town before the border then drop off the kids at the camp-site in Belgium, then return and join me for dinner. That’s how I ended up in the small village of Borkel en Schaft. Let’s get going southwards…

    • Carrie,
      Ha ha … now that you mention it, I can see it too … expect breaking roads and pavements any second as it “surfaces” and tries to catch it’s dinner (fleeing human beings) … Hmmm a Hollywood blockbuster movie script in the making? LOL
