Merry Christmas to everyone at home, hope your Christmas will be warmer than mine. We wanted a white Christmas but we didn’t want this much snow! Yesterday the vet, 2 farriers and now the electrician have all run off the road just coming down the driveway and needed to be pulled out of the snow! At this point we are unsure whether we will be able to get to the show at Mechelen on Sunday, hopefully the snow disappears in the next two days.
Many buses, trains, boats and planes have been stopped or delayed, and we need to be in England by 8am on Wednesday 29th for Donnabella to go in to quarantine. If we don’t make it, Donnabella won’t be able to get on the next flight to Australia. And with flights only going to Australia once a month, it looks like we could be stuck here another month!
At this point it looks like we might not even have any food on Christmas. Mum tried to catch a bus to the shops, but no buses were running because of the snow. So someone from the stables offered her a lift but before they left the electrician ran off the road and was blocking the driveway! After he got pulled out of the way, they tried to go again but found the car pretty much bogged in the snow! With mats under the wheels and four people pushing eventually the car got out of the snow. So now mum is on her way to the shops and hopfeully she returns with some Christmas food!
Anyway have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, hope we get back in Australia soon!
Megan and Donnabella
