Simon and I are still working on the huge amount of written work to do for our adoption application – we have set ourselves a goal of the end of the month to complete this (not sure quite how realistic this is, but we are certainly trying for it). We had a glorious evening out last night, though – we went to see a production of Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (for those keeping count: yes, that is two Monday evenings out in a row, we are a bit feast or famine here with these things!). It was a very wet, dark evening, and we actually toyed with the idea of not going after all, but happily we did go and both really enjoyed ourselves.
I’m still knitting red squares for the Children’s Society’s “big stitch” campaign. I am currently on my third (my aim was to complete one!), my knitting is still slightly wonky but improving with each square!
