Thursday, December 31


Christmas this year was a bit worse than the year before. On Monday my mother called me, saying she had decided to cancel the Christmas celebrations this year. ‘What do you mean you’re going to cancel Christmas,’ I said. ‘Everyone in this country will celebrate Christmas, so why can’t you? Our plan was to visit my brother, who lives in a town near Germany. ‘Have you looked outside?’ she asked. There’s no way I can drive through this snow.’ I don’t have my drivers licence and the trains were not running on time. So I spent a few days sulking, had an argument with my brother and spent Christmas by myself in front of the tv.
