Family meals

I'm a firm believer in family meals, and tonight is a good reason why. Its election night and my daughter has just voted for the first time. Her voting strategy was dictated by the suggestions of the hottest local lad (but also her own gut instinct....honest....) and the conversation at table, while ranging from the availability of striped skirts and the feasibility of getting a meal in Preston train station in under 12 minutes to the rise of Hitler after World War One, also included a long discussion on what would happen in the morning, now that we've all voted. The kids decided - and I love this idea - that the results would be announced, and then there would be one giant National Awkward Silence......with one embarrassed cough.....

Now, that's worth laying the table for!
