Finally, a home: Reblog for Flashback Friday.

It’s hard to believe that it’s 7 years ago that we became liveaboards. It turned out to be an interesting and fascinating time for both of us.
Although it was only for a little under three years, we would not change it for the world and have fond memories of chaos, learning curves, and thinking outside the box (aka boat). We also have our own expression for forgetfulness, that being ‘boat moments’ as quite often within walking the 30 odd feet of one end of the boat to the other we would forget why.
Happy days.


Itโ€™s hard to believe we completed on the sale of our house six weeks ago. Now all that is definitely behind us, as we took possession of our new home yesterday. houseHubby then had to move it (with tuition) from our place of purchase to our new address. It was an interesting 3 hours, as I drove off with the dog, and he puttered off for the journey. Last night, all three of us had the best nights sleep for months. I think the lapping of the water and peace and tranquility of The Marina had a lot to do with it.

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.

  1. What an adventure, to live on a boat! I love the term โ€œboat momentsโ€, could totally see that happening to me ๐Ÿ˜‚

    • Hi Juliette. We certainly had a lot of those, and still do haha! It was a great life, and we miss the simplicity of it and were sorry to give it up, but decided to do so on our terms, not when forced. Our last trip was wonderful.

    Although this may sound ridiculous – I also have fond memories of your time on the boat! Everything was ship shape and you made the most of every single inch.
    An adventure indeed. ๐Ÿ˜€
