Things People Live in

Thanks Cee for this part of a double challenge
Dan’s door challenge goes live on 3oth March so the link is in place but not active yet.

Hubby and I lived temporarily in a tent (4 weeks) then a 2 berth touring caravan (5 weeks) before buying the cottage in 2007.  The cottage was originally the village school and had been built in 1847. It was converted to a private residence in the 1950s with a few extensions added over the years including a bathroom, third bedroom and kitchen.
We sold the cottage in 2014 and ended up buying a narrow boat!

We were liveaboards for almost three years and it was a wonderful experience.


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.

    Wow, we lived in a caravan with our two dogs while travelling around Australia, and space was an issue, that looks even more difficult

    I love the creativity people have when loving in a van to a canal boat (I don’t actually know the name for those boats 😂).

    • Hi Lucy, thanks for the follow and commenting here. Canal boats are usually narrows like ours was, but you can have barges, houseboats, or wide beams which can be more like floating apartments.

    Adventures galore! A former coworker lived in a yurt in her backyard for a year to escape her father’s drunken rages. It worked as he didn’t know she was out there – thought she’d left home to live with her brother. She moved back into the house after he died. A sad story but it explains much of why she was the way she was….

    I did spend just a week on a ‘barge’ on the Norfolk Broads back in 1978 but that wasn’t really long enough. We just sort of went from pub to pub! so, I’d love to spend more time on one to see more sights.

    • You can have boating holidays. We met quite a few when we went up to Stratford, one couple nearly sank us in Luddington Lock!!

      • glyn40wilton says:

        Yes, remember ‘Hoseasons Holidays’? There were eight of us on board but none of us fell in! Which was a surprise 🙂

      • That was one thing I never did, fall in, though Hubby did in one of the locks and I was left dangling from a ladder trying to get a foothold on a boat that wasn’t there! Luckily we were in tandem with friends so they were able to help us out.
