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!

    How cool to live in an area where you can go to the theater. What a neat experience.
    Are ya’ll starting to get ready for Christmas?
    You know decorations and stuff.
    And I just wanted to say how worth it it is going to be when you finally bring your little one home. All that paper work will fade into the back ground.
    I look forward to hearing the good news.

    We are really blessed with all the entertainment opportunities and museums/ galaries in London – we’re trying to make the most of them while we can!
    I will post on Christmas preparations in a day or two.
    We keep feeling really bogged down by the paperwork – we have to keep reminding ourselves why we are actually going through all this!
