Wow – for the first time in ages I woke up without that meal hanging over me! It went as well as could be expected. There was a bit of a timing issue with the others which affected my timing, but I’m a decent cook, and what might have been ruined was pretty well salvaged. Only the broccoli was a little soggy, and people still ate it.

My reward – more biscuits! but very kind, and some nice presents. I’ll post a list of at least all the Christmas book gifts later…

Thanks everyone who thought of me yesterday!
