Two young swans regularly visit the houseboat in the morning. They live on a floating reed bed on South Dock Marina.
We’re slowing ticking jobs off the bathroom to-do list fitting jobs in around work, travel and play. Next up grouting, then painting, paneling and flooring.

St Paul’s Cathedral from the river
The Thames Clipper is one of the best kept secrets on the River Thames. The river boat service run daily and stops along the river from the West End to Woolwich. This is a photo of St Paul’s en route home on the last service of the day.
Work in progress
The bathroom in the midst of the refit. There’s a new toilet to be fitted, and tiling and panelling to be completed. And then a new floor.
It’s all about the plumbing
The first thing people want to know when we tell them about the houseboat is how we deal with the cold and damp. It’s all about the heating and plumbing systems. This is a new dehumidifier, pressure hose and macerating toilet going aboard.
