Janet's Blog – October 2021

Where did the summer go? 

In fact where did this year disappear to? I suppose it is true that time becomes relatively shorter the older you get (think about that one). It's been so lovely to see everyone back on their boats and enjoying the season – even if it was a bit wet at times the mini Indian summer and the freedom of being able to finally get out and about did make up for it a little. 

My summer has been spent both at the marina and also driving either daughter No. 1 or No. 2 around to either dressage or shooting competitions. In fact most of August seems like a bit of a blur – a lot of time spent driving the wagon and sleeping in the middle of fields. Fortunately  daughter No. 1 did quite well this year and came home with a range of rosettes, prizes and qualifications.  The season culminated in a visit to the British Dressage National Championships at Somerford Park near Congleton. Three stables down from us was one of the British Olympic and European Dressage team members – it was really exciting spotting all the big riders and a fabulous experience to be there albeit at one of the lower levels. Daughter No. 2 finished off the summer with a visit to the National Shooting Ground at Bisley for the English Open. She shot her socks off and even made the semi final. 

And now, as things calm down I can get back to where I love to be – the marina. We've spent the summer building some extra caravan pitches, a lake, an outdoor gym and my favourite bit – some railway themed glamping wagons. I'm really excited about the fact that this now creates a lovely circular walk for moorers and caravanners encompassing the old railway cutting and the marina – oh and you can stop off for a go on the outdoor gym on the way round! Not to mention my favourite new additions – a dog wash and our brand spanking new Camperclean Machine (should I be worried about getting so excited about something that empties your toilet cassette!!....)
