It's the Winter Solstice so the days start getting longer from now on! We haven't been bothered by the short days since we moved onto the boat but when we were both still working the short daylight hours were a real problem. We'd get up and go to work in the dark, work indoors all day and then go home in the dark...miserable! Life is SO much better now.
We're now back in Tattenhall Marina, purely for the convenience of being able to safely leave the boat while we go off visiting friends and family. I don't like marina life but at times of the year like this it's a god-send. Today we went back to Manchester to see my Mother followed by my Sister and her family. Soon we'll be off to spend Christmas with our kids, can't wait, it'll be wonderful to all together again even if only for a couple of days.
I won't be posting any more blogs now until after the festivities so I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas. May Santa bring all your hearts desire and may you all eat and drink lots of wonderful stuff.
See you soon XXX Yvonne
