To everyone in histoland,


This is my last full week at work. From next Tuesday I will be retiring
from my job at Cambridge University. I have thoroughly enjoyed my chosen
profession as a research technician specialising in histology. I realise
that because I have always worked in research my experience is somewhat
limited: I haven't been asked for the same range of techniques that you
find in a routine clinical lab. However, I have enjoyed my work and have
learnt and devised some techniques for a range of interesting samples.
Now it's time to learn something new! 


I hope to spend more time with my lace pillow and learn to do it
properly, maybe learn to do Northamptonshire lace which I believe is a
variation on Bucks point. (I come originally from Northants) I have had
a go at Bedfordshire and will learn more, it is very pretty. I also plan
to travel; my next trip is to New Zealand in November. 


I won't go on. I just want to say this: You are all great guys and
girls; you share your experience and friendship with great generosity,
which I have always felt is what a scientist should do. Thank you for
your comradeship and help over the years. Maybe I'll get to meet some of
you by chance during my travels.


Best wishes to you all and a great big Thank You,






Miss Margaret Blount
