Not my usual topic.....

You may have noticed I haven't been posting much on here lately ~ there's a reason for that. I haven't had such a great time since Christmas, firstly I had an awful virus which left me with very little energy for a couple of weeks so I didn't do much of anything. Then there are the dreaded quakes ~ we are still getting them and we have decided to move out of our home ~ a decision which was made after a giant blue gum tree fell in the garden missing the conservatory by a couple of meters last week (after the water heating system crumbled to pieces and flooded parts of the house a few weeks previously, the cracks up the walls getting wider and wider, the list goes on and on) this house really shakes and rattles even with the slightest quake which I think is due to it being a 2 floor home.... my nerves can't take much more of it!

So we have placed an offer on a cottage a few kilometers from here which seems to have withstood the quakes far better than this house, just 2 chimneys were damaged and taken down. It needs a lot of renovation work but it's in the most beautiful setting.

I haven't done any knitting for weeks and although I have been dyeing up yarns for my yarn clubs I'm not dyeing for the shop at the moment and won't be for a while yet due to the house move ~ I do have a few skeins to list in the shop but these will be the last for the time being. I will post any updates here.
