Thanksgiving with Rick and family

For the main event on Thanksgiving day, the Barkers really went to town! Megan prepared a feast of local cheeses. Liz prepared a soup starter of acorn squash, where the hollowed out gourds were roasted and used as bowls. This was followed by a main meal of Turkey with all the trimmings and finished off with an array of fruit pies.

Remote - check, Manhattan - check!

The Queen opens the new SSAFA HQ in London

The queen visited our office street to open a new headquarters for the armed forces charity SSAFA, a bit rainy out, so she didn't hang around too long for a walkabout!

We had Frankie and Scarley staying with us this weekend, and we took them to a bonfire party at Fi and Grae's in Westcliff. Everyone had a good time, if a little carried away with the festivities!
