Sounds exhausting! Take care of yourself! It will be settled soon (I hope!)

Cheryl Seaman said...

This has to be so stressful for you! Hope it works out just fine and that you and Steve can find a way to make your new lifestyle work for you!

I hope you're feeling OK in yourself and Steve is calming down a little. Hope your move to your permanent home goes to plan. Good Luck

I love your blog and its the first place I go in the morning to check on your housing progress. Over the weekend I found a new series entitled, "Cruising the Cut" about a man who (in 2014) gave up his job and sold his home and bought a used flat bottom boat. I've watched two of the episodes, and although parts of it are very technical in his explanation of electrical and other types of refitting explanations, I do love it and it gives me an idea of your boat and problems with storage - Now that I can picture what you've dealt with, I may go back and read some of your older posts.
I hope you and Steve are settling in and relaxing before the final move to your new home.

Thank you for the update. I hope all is going well, I look forward to reading about it.

A Smaller Life said...

Good to hear it :-)

Hopefully soon everything will be sorted out for you both and life will start to feel a bit more normal again. Even writing that makes me think 'Is life EVER normal?' oh well you know what I mean. xx

PatsyAnne ... if you like Cruising the Cut but find it too technical perhaps try 'Narrowboat Liberty' as well. Just a couple and their dog Milly cruising the Lancaster Canal, it's lovely to watch.

Well, thank goodness you're off the boat, I know it's not 'home' yet, but at least some proper progress has been made.
Is Steve a little more settled now that he's back on dry land, or is he still being an awkward bugger?
I'm just relieved that you're somewhere which is a lot safer for both of you, it's such a shame that you've had to call time on your canal life, but as soon as Steve had the stroke, I feared that this day would come sooner rather than later.
Just be proud of what you did though, the majority of us who read your blog have only ever lived on dry land, and you've had adventures that we can't even imagine!
Onward and upward now hey?
Take care, Col X

Best wishes. Take a deep breath and find some peace now.

I hope things are easier now for you-Is Beano Ok and enjoying his walks?x

Debby said...

I'm glad that you won't wpend another winter on that boat. To be honest, it sounded like a very difficult season.

I’m glad that you have found somewhere to stay while you are between boat and apartment. Hope that you are also having a chance to rest and take things easy.

Rambler said...

Do you have a date for moving into your own home? It must be quite expensive to rent a holiday place in August. Has Steve adjusted to land-living and hopefully feeling calmer? And Beano must be loving the extra space to stretch out or find a cool place. Hope it won't be long before you can settle for good in your forever home.

Settling in.

We're getting sorted slowly and are down to the last couple of boxes. These have Steve's name on them but if I don't want to be ...
