Untitled
  • Erik breaking up from school – start of Christmassy stuff
  • Going to the cinema
  • Christmas
  • Baby being born (January some time)
  • My parents visiting in February

I think that’s quite enough for now :) Lots of fun things happening!



get back into regular exercise (read all 10 entries…)
I foresee a lot of walking in my future :)

Complete with pram and little one, once they arrive that is.



foster or adopt a child (read all 4 entries…)
I still feel the same way about this as previously

Despite being pregnant, I don’t see having adoptive children as an either/or. However, it may never happen due to financial issues (here in Sweden almost all adoptions are international, and the rules the countries have, particularly when it comes to ‘net worth’ are something we are not going to reach for many years, if at all). This is a sad state of affairs, I think, for all those children who are sitting in orphanages who aren’t being adopted because their potential parents’ house doesn’t cost enough, for example. Very sad.
