So we are getting there slowly. The boat is beginning to look more homely and tidy as I go on endless trips to Target to buy yet more plastic storage. If there is a gap, I can find a box to fit in it!! The girls are very pleased with their cabin, which is looking lovely thanks to a sale on quilts in Target – their bedding was reduced from $90 to $25 and the wall stickers were only $3.50! Eleanor is beginning to spot the bargains too. They have also hung up little LED fairy lights which run off AA batteries to add a little ambience.
I’ve had a complete overhaul of the galley area too as we are quite tight on space. Tight is probably a bit of an understatement, even when compared to a quarters kitchen, but having thinned out the crockery and cutlery a bit and rearranged the cupboards, it is surprising what room there is. Spring cleaning is so much easier when your kitchen is so titchy, tiny! This is a very good thing as I think I will be having to do a full clean more often in these hot climates and for those who know me well, you will know just how much I love cleaning!?!. Again plastic, airtight storage is going to have to be invested in.
