Well, Thanksgiving dinner was a success. Cathy's boyfriend John was working away in Edinburgh, so she brought her friend Katie instead. Everything was ready at roughly the same time (shock!) and it all tasted really good. My father-in-law didn't start to get annoyingly drunk until just before they left, which was also nice. Dylan was a super star. He stayed up a little bit later than normal, so he slept until after 8 this morning, which was the best of all.

I was SO tired by the time we were done cleaning up and everyone was gone. Martin and I both went to bed at 10 pm, and slept for 9 1/2 hours straight. Pregnancy really takes it out of you!

So the fridge is full of leftovers, the house is reasonably tidy, and Dylan is sleeping soundly in his crib upstairs. I am indulging in some relaxation time, and have jsut finished my delicious lunch of Turkey, mayo and cranberry sandwich. What a fantastic day! Martin is working tomorrow night (private party) but he has the day off. It's the Barton Christmas Fayre, and we'll be taking Dylan 'round it. We're also going in to Scunthorpe to pick up the last bits and pieces for making Christmas gifts. It's been a good week, and it's going to be an even better weekend.

Life is really good right now!
