Another New Chapter!

Well here we are again, it's been a while since I last blogged.
My life is constantly changing, whose isn't?
I haven't felt settled for a long time. Always feel comfortable on Tickety Boo, she is my sanctuary, my big steel hug that envelopes me in her safe arms!
It's the outside things that have made me feel unsettled...

I am not going to linger too much on my last mooring. What can I say, it was fabulous while it lasted...until my happiness there was brought to an abrupt halt. Now this, 'Halt' was to me at the time a nightmare but as time has gone on it wasn't such a nightmare as a blessing!

I have many fond memories of my time at the club where I was moored for 13 years. I met some lovely people, who hopefully I will see out and about on the cut. I also, to my sadness, met people who shocked me to the very core with their actions! I shouldn't think for one minute these people would ever read my blog...personally I wouldn't want them to if I am being honest but the people in question know who they are. If they are proud in how they have conducted themselves it just sums up the type of people they are. Individuals I am so glad I have distanced myself from!

I refuse to go into anymore detail than that, as individuals they don't really warrant valuable space on my blog! My blog is for nice things, they are categorically not nice!

So, on to this new chapter. I am now in a Marina! I have always dreaded the thought of being moored in a Marina! Marina's to me always conjured up a picture of a car park for boats, how wrong could I be! I now liken it more to a village, a boat village. The atmosphere here is lovely, very relaxed and well run. All clean and tidy, lots of trees and greenery which I love, friendly people facilities are excellent and the Marina tea rooms are so relaxed and welcoming. You know when you go to a new place and it all feels strange, it takes a while to settle? It never felt strange here from day one.

I recently put a post on my face book saying that if boats could smile Tickety Boo would have a huge grin on her bow, but in the meantime I will smile for both of us!

Financially I have had to tighten my purse strings, but the extra expense is worth every penny for the peace of mind I now have, so much so I have decided to bore you all with my blog posts once more!

I have been off the past week feeling run down with a cold and all the stress of the past few weeks, not the nicest of periods in my life but now firmly put behind me. I once again have lots to look forward to.

I will over the coming weeks and months hopefully have interesting things to waffle on about on here so apologies in advance!

I have to add just before I go, aren't friends and family wonderful when you are having a tough time? I have such lovely people surrounding me and know how lucky I am. I have a lovely family who are always there for me. Also a lovely man who has been in my life for the past 4 years.  We are having problems and worries just now but I know given time we will get through it and it will be sorted one way or another. I am 60 in two years time and I want to live the rest of my life being happy, whatever that takes to achieve  I will strive towards...

Hi Debbie lovely to see you are doing a blog again.You were my inspiration in buying my boat last year and achieving my goal. I too Moor on a marina in Surrey and the folk are lovely the trouble is I am looking for my forever home ( residential mooring) and at times wondered if I have done the right thing but the minute I step onto boheme I know I have. I look forward to reading your blog and I wish you all the luck in the world thank you xxx
