12 Days of Christmas: Days 4&5


What is on your personal wish list this year?

What I would really like is some direction in life.

Failing that, books please.

Share a fond childhood Christmas memory…

My mum’s ex boyfriend’s crazy Irish father used to take cracker jokes seriously.  By this I mean that they would take up pretty much the whole of Christmas dinner. We would each have to read our cracker joke and then wait while everyone else at the table was forced to try and guess the answer. If you attempted to have another conversation during the guessing of the cracker jokes, he would yell at you.

He also had this terrifying claw hand. He chopped the end of his index finger off in some accident or other. I guess it must have been just below his cuticle, because this claw-like spike of nail grew out the end of his finger stump. It was pretty much as gross as you’re imagining.

  1. Oh my goodness, the description of your mum’s ex’s fingers is so terrifying *erases from memory promptly*
    I need some life direction as well, which is really sad since I’m already in my mid 20s XD I did get books though so it’s not too bad!


    1. Haha! I know right. It was quite something.

      Life direction is a hard thing to come by! Maybe in 2016 things will start to get a bit clearer? Or maybe we’ll just figure out how to have fun anyway, haha.
