Bedsocks and Broomsticks: a reblog

I thought I’d reblog this for the Friday Flashback as this was our first Christmas on the boat and we were finding our feet as liveaboards.
One pair of those thick woolly socks gave up the ghost a few months ago but we managed to replace them. Hubby is still wearing the other pair, and the warm tootsies are still apparent, and he has a new pair in reserve.
As a little note here (and I did do a post on it after this) the blanket over the doorway turned out to be not such a good idea as the condensation on ‘the cold side’ was like Niagara Falls, so we took it down.

Our boat was aluminium, not wood, so although we saved money on maintenance through not needing it blacked every couple of years, we had a steep learning curve in keeping our condensation issues at bay.
Happy days though, and we still have our little Christmas tree which was made for us by my niece (the same one who painted the dolphins and whales) in 1990 because we ‘only had a little house’.
Fred our owl, duly decorated for Christmas, and our tree that lived on the cooker as it was the only free space we had for it.


bedI remember Bedknobs and Broomsticks from the 1970s, one of the many Disney part animated offerings that were very popular at the time.

But my title is not a typo, I’m talking about the wonders of bed socks and the aid of a broomstick to keep warm.

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.
