Winter is almost upon us, and after a really mild November so far, the frosty mornings are starting to hit us hard.
Nothing like this yet, but it’s on the way!
When we woke up yesterday morning, both cars on MOH’s drive had icy windscreens. That didn’t deter us from taking the dogs out though, but we did get on our way after lunch as we didn’t want to get back to the boat in the dark.
We’d left one of our little rads on low to keep the chill off, and the first thing we did when we got back was put the heating on. This was to be a two edged sword though as it compounded our condensation problem as we hadn’t put the picture frames up at the portholes yet (we had however done our clingfilming bit a little while ago).We are well on schedule as we did this a year ago, all but 2 days. One thing about diarising boat entries on my blog is I can look things up for comparison!
This morning, we had ice on the inside of the kitchen windows, so priority of the day was to get those frames up. Tomorrow we will be off to get some new curtains for them as we can’t find the ‘screens’ from last year. Also, our towel curtains Hubby made last year have faded so need to be replaced, and this time we’ll line them.
We are still learning, listening to others and making notes on boat living.
At the moment, it’s raining, and will be well into the early hours. The good news is that at least it will be ‘warmer’, but we will still have some condensation, though certainly not as much.
Swings and roundabouts as always.
