Winter Wonderland

Brrrrr, it's just a bit chilly out there and everything is frozen but everywhere looks so, so pretty. Today we have a brilliant blue sky and it's as still as can be, so if you're wrapped up it's lovely to be out and about. The only downside is that before I got the chance to turn the water off and drain everything down, everything foze up. It's my own fault — I was too much of an optimist and I was hoping to keep the water going for everyone for as long as possible.

Yesterday we managed to get a couple of taps running on block C and E and put some short hoses on so we could leave them running and stop everthing freezing up completely which was great until I discovered this morning that someone, presumably meaning well, had turned them all off and they had again frozen up — I was gutted!!! The children have been here today and have beaten me down over putting up the Christmas tree — so now we're all tinselled out, baubled up and listening to Bing Crosby who's dreaming of a White Christmas.......how long have we go to go.............

DO make sure your boat has a CO alarm, DO check the batteries, DO respond if it goes off — open the windows and doors and get out of the boat. DON'T leave ashes from your fire inside the boat — even as they cool they can be giving off...
