Happy Thanksgiving

The good: We hosted our first Thanksgiving as a family, and I cooked a damn fine meal, if I do say so myself.

The bad: My wee daughter decided to share her cold with me. I woke up at 5:00 in the morning and my throat felt like raw meat.

The ugly: In the small hours of the night, my cat barfed up a hairball on the floor next to my bed. Which I stepped in when I got up to feed the baby at 6:30am. Not exactly an auspicious start to the day.

Overall, though, a satisfactory turkey day. Speaking of which, did I mention that I cooked enough food for a small army? Does anyone want some leftovers?
