It’s that time of year.

Hasn’t 2013 flown by or is it just me?

We are now officially into Christmas mode with the tree and decorations coming out from their box and they are now adorning the boat. I do so love fairy lights.

Marmite has taken up her spot next to the tree and she has already shown interest in the baubles, so I can see her having some fun with them over the next few weeks.

I realise some may think we are early in putting up our decorations, but we always put them up on the 1st December.

I am so ahead of the game this year, I have already posted the cards etc to avoid the queues at the post office, well that was the idea, but when I got to the post office the queue was very long, but because I was in no hurry I did what us Brits are good at and I joined the queue and waited my turn, which was so Fifteen minutes later. My main worry about being in the queue was catching all the germs being coughed and sneezed whilst I waited. I found myself hold my breath every time someone coughed and then hoping I did not catch anything. What is wrong with people these days, they do not seem to know how to cover their mouths and noses when they cough and sneeze, and I did not see a hanky used by any of them. I always have a hanky or tissue to hand. Anyway I seem to have avoided their germs and I am so pleased I have done all I need to do. Now I can sit back and enjoy the run up to the big day.

What are you doing this Christmas and are you ahead of the game?

  1. Gosh I wish I was as organised as you. Apart from wrapping the grand childrens Christmas presents ready for when we see them on the 14th, I haven't even thought about decorating the boat yet. What you have done to Hadar looks spectacular, so warm and inviting. Hope you both enjoy the festive season and we look forward to meeting up in 2014.

  2. Hiya Irene and Ian. It is amazing what a few fairy lights will do. I think having the mooring has made me organise myself better for Christmas this year.
    May your Christmas be a wonderful one and we hope to see you somewhere on the cut in 2014 xxxxxxxxx

    So happy to hear from you again and see Hadar in all her twinkling glory! I miss your posts and all the news from the Cut. Hugs to Marmite and Paddy as usual.

  4. Hi Jo, it looks amazing. Roy has just come home with some fairy lights tonight so I am looking forward to watching him put them up at the weekend! Camera at the ready, not for the lights, just in case he falls in. Only kidding. This will be our first live aboard Christmas. Really looking forward to it. Love and best wishes to you both xxxxx
