Merry Christmas to all!
I apologise for being so absent the last couple of weeks. As with many of you, this time of year is particularly busy for me. And even those periods that I thought were going to be less busy have somehow become occupied.

It’s been an incredibly stressful couple of weeks; hence the lack of posting and updates. Mostly, I’ve been working or tidying or just stressing out. In fact, I’ve had maybe a couple of small meltdowns at home over the past fortnight.
And for this, I apologise to my darling Bear for putting up with me. I don’t mean to get so worked up or become so tense.

And, of course, the more that I want to go to sleep, the longer I will end up lying awake.
It’s gotten to the point where I’ve heavily invested in herbal teas. In particular, I ordered a lot of valerian root tea. It is well known for its sleep inducing properties, but it’s also effective as a stimulant to cats.
