The bridge in the Snow

I have to confess I've not spent a lot of November in the office. Early on in the month I had to go into hospital for another op (hysterectomy — preventative — not much fun so lets not dwell on it). I've had far too much time on my hands at home and as I write this blog (last week in November) I'm chomping at the bit to get back to the marina — it's my happy place — somewhere I feel at home and comfortable. For the first few years of setting up and running the place I was there so much I might as well have bedded down on the sofa in the cafĂ© each night, but as time has gone on (and after a bit of a brush with the big C) I do now try to spend as much time with the kids and horses as possible (I should add that also includes Angus, however he is often heard muttering..."all you ever do seems to involve horses...") That said, I am still obsessed with the marina — I love to watch it change through the seasons and every year new things seem to grow. At the start of November the Autumn colours were probably the most spectacular I've ever seen and now, after the frosts, the tress are starting to look pretty barren and bare, standing tall still, but with that grey stark outline the winter brings. The winds getting up, rain is forecast and it's time to batten down the hatches, light the stoves, dig out the Christmas decorations and be thankful for the gorgeous weather we had this year — lets hope 2019 brings us more! One last thing I must do is to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and New Year — whether you celebrate the season or not I hope your end of the year passes peacefully. As for us — well daughter No.2's birthday is on New Years Day so we'll be partying right the way through!

Stay say this winter and check your Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Smoke alarms — it could save your life! Carbon Monoxide is a silent killer — it has no odour. DO make sure your boat has a CO alarm, DO check the batteries, DO respond if it goes off — open the windows and doors and get out of the boat. DON'T leave ashes from your fire inside the boat — even as they cool they can be giving off...
