The Cottage comes with a boat and so Sarah Hosking took me out on the River Stour to test my river legs. Here she is rowing like a land girl with the intrepid Daisy as our figurehead.
I discovered that Daisy was waiting excitedly for her big moment – leaping out of the boat and running across the top of the weir.
The River air cleared my head and the next scene, which had been crawling along, suddenly took flight. Getting time out in the fresh air is wonderful. I try to have at least an hour out every day.
