How could I have forgotten that for so long?

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 438

Last weekend was the knitting machine exhibition - delayed from March, to which I was invited.
It was not until I went to the stand where all the monthly magazines were laid out that I realized that I had not been getting them recently, and when I checked at home later on, I realized that 'recently' was from the time I was diagnosed, back in November 2016.
I have arranged for all the back issues to be posted to me, if available, and also for a subscription - but as machine knitting is my profession, and interest too I am a bit dismayed to think that I never noticed that I was no longer supporting the last remaining magazine in the UK.
I can only put it down to the effects of the Metformin and Atorvastatin I took for a few weeks up to Christmas 2016 - but it was quite a shock to think that it is almost 2 years, and it never occurred to me that I was no longer getting a magazine I have been reading for decades.
