Not much here

In theory I'm back at work on Monday after yet another two weeks of a chest infection that was enlivened by conjunctivitis in both eyes as well! Once I could see to read again I enjoyed reading this autobiography of Bill Owen, best known for his role as Compo in Last of the Summer Wine he had appeared in many other roles before that and been involved in left wing theatre for many years.

I finally picked up the knitting needles, granted all I've done is finish off this eyelash scarf, but it's the first knitting I've done this year! I'm kind of hoping that I'll get inspired again soon but the return to work has me very stressed knowing how at risk I seem to be of picking up repeat infections, sadly an attempt to arrange for me to work at least part time at home hasn't come up with anything so I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that I stay well for a while!
Thanks again to the people who have sent good wishes by email or via the comments here - they are much appreciated.

I aten't dead yet

I'm sorry I've been missing for so long - thank you to everyone who has been in touch with me to ask how I am - I'm starting to feel as if I've been sick forever (in fact it's been off and on since last September)
I've no knitting to show you, I haven't actually picked up my knitting this year, life consists of going to work coming home and sleeping when I haven't been sneezing, coughing and wheezing my way through a seemingly endless procesession of chest infections. I still have a Christmas package to post to germany but I haven't been able to get to a Post office and I'm feeling thoroughly sorry for myself!
I'm off work sick yet again this week and I'm hoping that if I start to feel a little better I'll go back to a simple scarf! I'm just relieved that I hadn't booked to go to SkipNorth this year as no way would I have been well enough to go.
I'm sorry this sounds like such a pity party - even Hecate cat is fed up with me and I think would be happy tosee me back in work!
