Sorry, couldn’t resist, lol!

Now, as for our lunch… “mum, how much longer?”

Happy Post Thanksgiving!

Well, I have to say, Canadian Thanksgiving yesterday was an utter hoot!

Looking at the house today though you’d never guess we’d been preparing a sit-down lunch complete with turkey for 23 people. At the last moment two people weren’t able to make it which was disappointing. Although when we eventually sat down to lunch… it could have been a good thing don’t you think?!

Don’t you just love Little Miss in the bottom right-hand corner who has all but covered her piece of turkey in cranberry sauce… gorgeous hey?! The aftermath in the kitchen wasn’t though, and this was just the tip of the iceberg!

As both children had sleepovers on Saturday night, Darling Hubby and I were able to sit down and fully appreciate… there wasn’t enough turkey. Thankfully the stores are open here until 9m six nights a week, Saturday being one of them, so we raced down to purchase another turkey and all the trimmings we’d had yet to think of… wine, beer, champagne… just the basic trimmings!

With all day Sunday to prepare before we went out to a Thanksgiving dinner that evening, we were well and truly prepared for yesterday so were able to kinda relax and enjoy ourselves and our company. The day was such a success many of us are now counting down to American Thanksgiving… “mum, how much longer?”
