Well here it is… the first serious snow of Winter and still only the sixth of December!
Sixhaven lies beneath a crisp white blanket and the roof of Centraal Station can be seen in the background. Today, kind neighbours of mine from Birmingham are going to drive into Zaandam nearby where they sell good old red diesel at one euro per litre. They are my saviours and have offered to help me carry some back.
Penny and David have become friends since meeting them a few weeks ago; it’s a shame they don’t live permanently on board, as they spend most of their time back in England. Much more sensible than me!
Well, every little helps as they say… and maybe there is a light at the end of this freezing tunnel. I haven’t noticed any of the locals stepping up and helping. Their major contribution has been to forbid the use of ‘Bilbo’ my wood burner. I hope their family Christmases are going to be warmer than mine.
