I wrote this in December but never posted it. Here it is.
Hi there! I don't know if anyone is even reading this anymore, but I hope so. Let's see, since I last posted, we had Thanksgiving, which was great. It was weird to have to work on Thanksgiving and the day afterwards, but it was fun to explain the holiday to Brits. I've always loved Thanksgiving, and I was afraid it wouldn't be a good one, since we were so far from home, but I was wrong. We bought a free-range turkey from our local butcher's shop and used local vegetables from our organic veg and fruit box from Abel & Cole. We had to rush home from work and start cooking, but it didn't actually take that long. We have a convection oven with a fan in it, and our 12-pound turkey took only an hour and a half! I have photos that I'll post tomorrow or Monday. Our internet connection still doesn't work at home, which means our prepaid international phone line doesn't work either. I might have to wait for a better connection.
