It happened today and involved the Lada which has it's fair share of bad luck on a regular basis. From the 1st November to March the following year it is compulsory to use your headlights when driving during the day and night of course. On getting to the Skalitsa home on Friday evening the car wasn't touched in the garage until Sunday afternoon when we were due to go back to town. All set ready to go and the key turned only to find that the car dashboard didn't light up. My headlights had been on for two days and the battery was DEAD!
It was a full tow hours before we got another battery to start the car up and park on a hill with the dead one interested and call into a friends house for a battery charger that was fitted up to recharge the battery when we got home. The alarm has been set for 6:00 instead of 6:30 to sort the battery out first thing int he morning. This must happen to hundred of other Lada drivers when parking up in daylight with their lights on.
