"March is a month of considerable frustration - it is so near spring and yet across a great deal of the country the weather is still so violent and changeable that outdoor activity seems light years away."
Have you ever had a special experience? Could you tell us a personal story that you will never forget and that makes you smile?

A strange moment etc....
One day a long time ago when I was much younger, my lady friend and I visited a colleague in the maternity clinic (she had got a cute daughter named Cathy). Whilst we visited her we drank a glass of champagne together ( I think it was only one!). In Belgium it is a custom to recieve a little present with candy in it from the baby. Cathy's father had made little sailing boats with candy in it. Cathy's name was printed on the sail.
When we left the maternity unit, we received such a boat. After that we walked to my car on the parking, I took my car key (it was a normal key, not with a remote control you often see nowadays) and I opened the door. We placed the boat with the sweets in it on the dasboard and I tried to start my car.
Nothing happened. I tried it again and again, but still nothing happened. Then my friend looked in the back of the car and she said: "This isn't your car! Look at all these documents!" And indeed it wasn't my car. It was what you could call a look-alike. We left the car very quickly and I looked around. Then we saw my car parked just a little bit further... I wondered if it had been because of t the champagne???? I don't know. But what I know now is that Cathy's sailing boat was still in the other car. What the driver must have thought !!!!
