Dealing With the Unexpected

t12Well our “winter in Spain” has ended and the ferry delivered us onto English soil and our disasters began. All roads nominated by the sat.nav. were closed. In fading light and occasional street lights we tried to pore over the map, whilst the sat.nav couldn’t understand why we were ignoring instruction and kept telling us to go round the round-about and join the nominated road. Very frustrating! A journey which should have taken us 3 hours took 5 plus hours!

First the A3 was closed as traffic piled off the ferry and in the dark diversion signs were either unseen of missing. We circled Portsmouth together with other motorist for a while, then the sat.nav kicked in and we headed north.

After 6 months of virtually clear roads in Spain the sight of car headlights as far as you could see, and bumper to bumper traffic, was a bit of a culture shock. Many other roads were closed including the A1M and 421 which was the route specified. Eventually the sat.nav. gave us an alternative route and we arrived in the early hours of the morning.

On arriving home there were more problems we had arranged with the plumber to drain the water system dismantle showers etc. this he had done but he had not returned to reinstate them, so we had no bathroom facilities or water! Not really funny at 3am.

At least the weather has improved in England from the visions we had seen on TV. In fact it is today warmer than in Spain so we have definitely brought the good weather with us!

So perhaps the moral of this story is check all instructions have been fully carried out don’t assume they will be. Also carry a torch and a large-scale map, in case problems arise, perhaps I should have been a girl guide!

We have enjoyed our first winter in the sun, and look forward to returning to our house in Spain in the autumn.
