    Hi, I live in the UK and my name is Sue. I have always been anxious but since Ive been living on my own it seems to have morphed into depression. I am retired now and try and keep busy but the evenings and weekends are the worse time for the mind to start doing its own thing. Would like to talk to people who are the same . I love watching sport on the tv and knitting at the same time !

    Hi and welcome!
    I'm a crocheter, but can't knit for toffee! However Magie, Sissy, Flo and Jaq are all brilliant! Can't wait to get to know you better!
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    Knitting toffee that's a sticky business , being sensible now Sissy, Flo, Magie & Jaq are all good knitters and Paula does cross stitch, me I sew on the occasional button.

    I think it would look better than the knotty mess that I manage to produce!

    Welcome Sue......I'm a knitter! Actually I find it very therapeutic when I'm anxious. It's something to take my mind off it with. Currently knitting a jumper for my daughter. I'm retired too. Live in Somerset with my husband. I do a bit of volunteering which keeps me busy. Would volunteering be something you'd be interested in? It can be quite rewarding. Look forward to knowing you better.
