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.
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?
