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.
You can see what I mean from the above picture of our little tree on top of my cooker as there is nowhere else to put it.
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.
These are only 4 inches square, so I didn’t need a lot of trimmings.
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 ………………………………..
