Well the weather outside is frightful…

…but the fire is so delightful. We’ve had that continuously sung in the boat this past week courtesy of the delightful Hannah.

This week, as many of us in the UK may have noticed, we had a touch of snow.

Dan & Sophia poke their head out for a second before quickly retreating inside

And yet again we watched the country come to a halt.

This weather, of course, made us long for the hot air system that we plan on installing. But for the time being we have been making the most of seeing how quickly we can make the dial on the electric meter turn.

Despite the weather we have managed to keep snug and warm and I have been pretending to be an ‘ice warrior’ by hiking to work through the snow as it’s been far too dangerous to drive (as the 4×4 that almost drove into me demonstrated). Other adventures included; Hannah’s pontoon snow angels, running out of water and the filling tap being frozen over, and the appearance of Hannah on BBC radio Sussex who were interested in what it is like to live on a boat in this weather (they asked some really stupid questions!).


The marina felt like a winter wonderland

I thought I’d leave you all with a picture of what our boat would be like if, instead of planning a voyage to the Caribbean, we were actually in the Arctic. Enjoy….
