Out into the Cold!

I must be crazy, but I have to go out tonight, weekly weigh in you know.
Hubby is driving me, and rather than come back to the boat, get warm and then come out again to fetch me, he’s going to wait.
Such are the hazards I guess.
We already know it’s a quarter mile walk to and from the car park.
Add to that a dark night, freezing temperatures, a steep slippery gantry and frosty pontoon, there is no way he wants me walking anywhere by myself.

One thing we have noticed though is that when we get back, the boat is welcoming in its warmth and if necessary we can run the on-board central heating for just quarter of an hour and we are toasty and cosy.
Visions here of hot chocolate drinks with marshmallow toppings.

Shame we have neither  😦


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Nothing wrong with dreaming (about food and drinks)! πŸ™‚

  2. Those drinks look fabulous!

    • Oh they do don’t they. A few years ago we’d buy a bag of large marshmallows and some drinking chocolate and it was our treat before bedtime. The mallows were so big, only one would fit in the cup at a time. Sigh, those were the days.

    Stop teasing with the hot chocolate! lol

  4. I almost made myself a hot chocolate this morning after walking Choppy. I think after this post that I won’t be able to resist after our evening walk!
