It was a gloomy, rainy day today. This is the sort of day we expected the Winter to be like. I definitely preferred it when it was much colder and frostier but not raining. I want to make sure I include photos on the blog of gloomy days as well as pretty ones. I should probably try and get one when it's pouring rain!
I did a big wardrobe clean-out. I like to take all the clothes out, refold them and put them back every 3 or 4 weeks. It gives them a good air out. We've had several people warn us about problems with mold in boats but so far we've been ok. I have noticed that the back wall of our wardrobe gets a bit of warmth from the central heating boiler behind. That's a bonus.
We've also decided that some shoes and a couple of other bits and pieces will go back home with Mick in February. We've had to buy a couple of pairs of Winter boots as nothing we had at home was suitable for such cold weather. That means a pair of walking boots each, that I thought would be ok for the cold, will go home again. We'd need to wear two pairs of socks for them to be warm enough but they aren't big enough for two pairs of socks. We're learning as we go.
