Helpful kitty

I spent this weekend rather vaguely trying to do some housework, the flat has been sadly neglected lately while I've been so depressed and I'm gradually winning the battle against the chaos. A friend of mine has been helping me, he comes round and helps me shovel the junk out and get the cleaning started - he's been a huge help kick starting me getting things done.
I decided to attack the kitchen cupboards and remove the out of date stuff that lurks folornly in the back of them, I didn't have to deal with it all alone - as you can see I had help!
The crocheted squares are plodding along and I'm now debating booking for Skipnorth next year.

Lost, one knitting mojo

What I have managed to do is find some satisfaction in crochet, even if only ordinary granny squares. I still can't concentrate on a knitting pattern to save my life but these I can do.
My return to work has left me really tired and I'm only just beginning to have some energy when I get home from work. In addition I'm facing at least one and possibly three more desk moves in the near future which is not helping my mood! I do, at least, like my new manager and I'm getting better able to concentrate on my work and being more productive.
I've even been working through the flat getting it sorted and cleaned after months of neglect.
The area where I live is deteriorating, a month ago there were 4 knife attacks in 6 hours one Friday night, this Friday a 17 year old was stabbed and killed less than 100 yards from my flat, all thoroughly depressing and trapping us indoors all Saturday while the police searched for the murder weapon.

Overall I'm much better but don't feel inclined to blog much as it would mostly be
1) got up
2) went to work
3) came home
4) microwaved tea
5) bathed
6) went to bed!
I will try and update this a little more often though so that people who eread this know that I'm still alive!
