This is all the knitting I have done in one whole week.
A bit embarrassing, I know. But my life is still very chaotic, the boxes seem to be endless and there is much do to before we are properly settled in the new flat.
But I had a very joyful milestone this weekend. I went to the opera and saw Il Trovatore.
Now why is that a milestone you might ask?
As many of you know, I have lupus and a lot of my symptoms are central nervous system related. Headaches, sensitivity to light and sound, etc. So big concerts have been out of the question for eight years now, and this fall is the first time since I fell ill, that I’m well enough to attend such an event. It still cost me though, my head is sore the day after, but it’s so worth it.
I had a wonderful time, the singers were great and I managed to block out the couple behind me that not only made very strange and disturbing sounds constantly, but straight out talked, several times during the performance. I was half ready to murder them, but the I relaxed and decided I was not going to let the spoil my evening. But still, one does not talk during Leonora’s aria. It’s just verboten.
