The Driver's Birthday
20.09.2013 - 21.09.2013 18 °F
It's Ben The Driver's birthday but there's no peace for the wicked. Keys put on his new 'vintage' Volvo keyring (I know, my generosity is unstinting) we headed for Vaals in the Netherlands. We got there early. "'Sandwiches and coffee are waiting for you in the castle," said a friendly crew member. We found it. Thought...."this is a bit upmarket isn't it," and piled our plates. "It's a wedding party," grins Ben, moments later, "and we are definitely underdressed." Mortified, I fled. Not him. He hid behind a pillar until every morsel of gorgeous juicy chicken and rice was devoured!
Scrutineering went well. Bianca gleamed, her official Rally plates and stickers in situ, Union jacks flying.
She was raring to go....and after a nice chap called Mark fiddled with her widgets....her 'pinking' is hopefully now 'plonking'...and to keep the third person in our marriage happy, we headed off on a 'jolly'...it was such a glorious evening why wouldn't we?
We found this place...
Not bad eh!
And stopped for tea and apple pie so I could 'work' on the route map! IT ISN'T ALL FUN YOU KNOW!
Dinner was entertaining....I wont bore you with the car talk. Early'ish to bed hoping for a good sleep before competition starts tomorrow at 0914hrs.
