Got a crash course in charging the van battery myself.
Unloaded six children (made them keep on their shoes and jackets).
Sat by the living room fire and read while we waited the prescribed amount of time for the battery to charge.
Waited an extra ten minutes - just to be sure.
Loaded those same six children BACK into the van.
Foolishly I didn't try to start it again until AFTER they were reloaded and re buckled.
One click, a dashboard fully lighted, then...
Fifteen minutes of waiting to try again.
A bit more "oomph" this time.
We read another story - while sitting in the van...
In the garage...
Unload six children more resilient than me.
Remember: "Flexible... flexible... flexible..."
Cups of tea for everyone.
Lunch and a Nap.
I think I can live with that.
"...Flexible... flexible....... flexible........ . . . . . . . ."
