December: Christmas Thoughts 12

Several of the boats in our basin have put up Christmas decorations. All are longer than we are and thus have more room aboard than we do.
We had decided to have Christmas aboard this year anyway, but are gradually getting into the festive spirit rather than give ourselves the frustration from hell having to move anything to do anything.

Hubby has put a chord up for our cards, and this is filling up quite nicely (we have 6).
I wrote our ‘local’ ones out yesterday and discovered I was a few short, so whilst Hubby was tinkering with some maintenance in the bathroom, I made a few more.
I made these in just over an hour and a half.

No doubt when we are sorting out the bench and under the sink we will find our Christmas in a bag and hopefully the battery operated lights we purchased the first year aboard. We wove them between the eyelets of the helm cover and the boat looked quite twinkly.
Now as to whether we will be putting up tinsel or any more lights as we did when we were house sitting ………………………………..

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    A chord for cards? Very creative I must say, but what chord…. or perhaps you meant cord!

    So cute and tiny, I love it!

    • It’s cute isn’t it. Made for us by my niece for our first house as it was very small ( 16’4 x 13’6 on two floors, so not quite as small as the boat at 41′ by 6’10) 🙂
