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.
