Accidental Thanksgiving and nice mummies

Accidental Thanksgiving


So, today was US Thanksgiving.

I had no idea but I cooked the full roast dinner anyway. Hmmm, maybe being surrounded by Americans here is rubbing off on me? The whole thing was a big accident from start to finish:

And the girls ate bucketloads of vegetables while the chicken was resting and I was making gravy and didn't even touch the chicken. Oh well.

And I forgot it was K's aikido day and he wasn't home till 10. Oh well.

Oh well, I enjoyed my roast dinner anyway and I'm thankful for the extra room in the freezer.

Nice mummies


While I was cooking today M and A were playing 'nice mummies'. What do 'nice mummies' do?

They dress to the nines (see above) and then they take their children out for the day. 'Out' meant passing by the kitchen on the way to the genkan so I got to hear all about their travels. Nice mummy travels include:

Going to the vending machine to buy juice.
Going to the pool.
Going to the park.
Going to buy ice-cream.
Going to the zoo.
Going out for a kid's meal.
Going shopping to buy 'whatever you like and not just one thing'.

And that was all one day's outing...

Wow. By the end of this I was thinking I am really not a very nice mummy after all.... Lucky they have a 'nice daddy' huh?

Wow! We should have gone to yours last night. Our Thanksgiving feast was the curry MIL sent home with Akinori last night, for which I was truly thankful :)
I'm sure the girls know in their hearts you are a very nice mummy, just like I know my husband is very nice deep within my heart but I still fantasize about him coming home and giving me a massage after he cooks dinner and does the laundry every night ;)

Happy (USA) Thanksgiving!

Nice mummy game. HAHA! Love it- they are very creative. That is a lot to fit in one outing though!!!

The roast dinner looks divine. Would love to have a roast dinner.

That roast dinner looks AMAZING!!!
I am on the verge of trying to cook a proper roast dinner as I now have a proper sized gas oven in my new flat. Will let you know how I get on! ;-)

Was greatly amused by the "nice Mummy" game. Would be nice to have the time/ energy to be a nice Mummy wouldn't it? The most I can manage most days is "not completely grumpy" Mummy.. ;-)
