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 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.

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