Well that is done and dusted for another year and here we are entering Boxing day. Boxing day last year we were moored at Foxton and after a very quiet Christmas day suddenly the world and his brother turned up wearing the 'boxing day sweater' - every few minutes another group of legs went past the boat. Children's voices uttered the "Do people live in there Dad?" as eager little faces were pressed against the portholes to check on this new and fascinating environment. I have aleady been asked, 'Is is warm in there?' and 'How do you wash?' - the latter question because I looked scrubbed up rather than in need of a dowsing I hope?
I fully expect that today we will find ourselves inundated with walkers and families eager to escape the confines of the house and there will be many more little faces pressed against the glass for a quick recce asking Dad if people live in there?
And of course we do, lucky blighters that we are!
