.... I'm back! Hopefully!
Apologies for my prolonged absence but I've been ill, constant bouts of the bug that laid me low at Christmas. I've had lots of sick days, though have managed to keep up with my teaching commitments, but apart from that I simply haven't had any energy for anything else. If I've not been teaching I seem to have been sleeping, so lots of things have fallen by the wayside, this blog being one of them. Physically, I'm almost back to normal but emotionally am still not right. I'd been hovering on the brink of crossing the line into depression before Christmas but the inevitable happened and I'm now focusing on putting this latest depressive illness behind me. I still have a way to go but do feel that I'm making progress. I have the support of the people around me and my doctor is aware of the situation so I'm as optimistic as I can be, that this aspect of my life will improve soon.
Despite being ill and having no energy, exciting things have been happening in the garden so I have lots to tell you but that's for later in the week. I also have my camera out for the first time in months and will be back with an update tomorrow - it's 'a photo an hour' today and I'm joining in for the first time in I don't know how long. So I need to go and do things so my photos aren't too boring!
