New Year New Boat New Life

I'm not properly keeping up with this blog malarky, it's been a while, but a lot has happened and at least I don't have any followers to let down so far, it's only me and my own desire to write this every week! Must try harder!

So the big news is - I'm going to have a little baby, that's all a bit exciting! It means we are moving on to a bigger boat as well, I shall probably get stuck climbing on and off our lovely boat soon enough, so we're moving on to our neighbours boat, which is a beautiful wide-beam one with an Heritage stove, like an Aga, a separate bedroom and bathroom, it needs some work doing to it because it's a brand new build and so the floor needs painting, bathroom tiling, pipes all need boxing in and steps into the boat need building, so we've got some work to do, but we're getting there, slowly!

We were meant to be moving on at the beginning of January but the pipe for the Aga to the diesel was drilled into the top of the diesel tank instead of the bottom and has caused a few problems, so we need to wait for the coal boats to come along and buy some more diesel and some spare so that we can work out exactly how high up the pipe is. Muppets in the boat building yard!

It's been one thing after another with this boat but hopefully we can get on there soon, be warm and dry and not damp and cramped and get the boat properly 'shaken down'. Can't wait to have enough space to lie down on a rug and streeeeeetch!
