It seems the "lost" adoption paperwork is actually fine. I received it yesterday and though it won't do us any good at this point it's nice to know that the Royal Mail isn't totally worthless.
On another note - I have the WORST luck, ever. I have to post about the day I am having. For starters - it's raining, again. Shocker. After dropping Kaneu off at school I decided to treat myself to a latte at Starbucks. On the way I accidentally stepped in a puddle and it splashed all the way up my leg. Disgusting and gross are understatements. I trudged along nonetheless. I bought the recent issue of TimeOut and had a nice coffee with myself BUT when I got up to leave I realized someone took my umbrella! I thought I was losing my mind, crawling around on the floor, circling the store and questioning the employees. The (£25!) umbrella was gone. What does a girl do? Well, this girl marched across the street to the store where the £25 umbrella was purchased and bought another one. The new umbrella was £10 and smaller, and I knew instantly it was a waste of money, but they were out of the £25 umbrella, which was a kick ass umbrella. This umbrella lasted me more than 6 months AND dried quickly AND was windproof. I loved it. Sigh. So, after picking Kaneu up from school and explaining to him what was with the new hot pink umbrella we went to swimming lessons and then to a last minute appt with the doctor. I noticed over the weekend that my lymph nodes on my neck were freakishly large, tender and visible. All it takes is a few clicks on Google and Brian was close to diagnosing me with a whole slew of cancers and other horrible diseases. So, to ease our minds I went and am SO thankful I did. It seems that the incision on my forehead where "mini-me/edna" was removed got infected. It didn't look strange until today - and I didn't feel bad until today. The doctor said it looked like I got kissed by a tarantula! I'm on meds and all should be better in a few days. OK, but the kicker to this story is that when we got home a little while ago I realized my new umbrella is broken! Can you believe it? I actually can.
