Chertsey's undercloth 'glamping' accommodation has been evolving for a while now, slowly and quietly, but I think we may have reached a watershed on the Brownhills trip. We have transitioned from obviously makeshift arrangements in the hold of an unconverted boat to something that is starting to look worryingly like a 'normal' boat, albeit one with red oxide steel walls and inconveniently low doorways. And this transformation has been achieved by the simple expedient of forty five quids' worth of carpet roll end.
Enceladus Sarah, 'a glorious ‘home within a hold’ – dry, cosy, full of perfectly
curated pieces drawn from all sorts of eras that yet manage to form a
beautifully congruent, consonant – and now, newsflash, carpeted – whole' Why, thank you :-)
In Brownhills, I also bought a new kitchen bin. We had previously been deploying the gorgeous bucket that Blossom painted for Chertsey when I first bought the boat, but its capacity was rather limited. Two problems have now been solved at a sweep, as the bucket has become the vegetable storage facility.
