The musings of an obsessive knitter and stash collector

Been a long time gone!

I owe anyone who still reads this blog an apology, I haven't blogged, knit or read any blogs since the end of April. I've had a rough year, it all started when I had a winter of endless chest infections and just seems to have gone from bad to worse. I can't discuss here how my job has added to my stress levels, but endless desk moves - around 10 in 7 months and issues with my manager resulted in the slight depression I was suffering from spiralling completely out of control. After 5 weeks off work on double the dose of anti depressants and some Valium I'm finally on the mend (fingers crossed)

I haven't had the concentration to knit, read or even watch TV for most of the last 3 or 4 months and I'm hopeful that I may be able to return to work next week after I see my long suffering GP again, she's been wonderfully supportive seeing me every two weeks to make sure I didn't get any worse. Hecate has mostly been a light in the dark place where I've been (in the first picture she's actually being wicked and nesting on a kitchen work surface, the second picture is of her watching the birds outside - she has a fond belief that if she could jump from the first floor window she'd be able to catch the birds in the trees.
