And in contrast to the friends ... the family

Something that struck me over Christmas, that I haven't blogged about: my parents. They were great. And have been great ever since I split up with Wickedex (who seemed to be the first partner they ever liked).
My dad lost his job the Friday before Christmas (great timing there from the bossman), but at no point was anything stinted. At no point was there any suggestion that the whole family and friends and in-laws shouldn't turn up and expect four course meals. That they should do, in fact, anything for themselves other than consume horrendous amounts of the food that frequently appeared in front of them. That we shouldn't spend half of our time on the phone or on the internet. No hint that we should pay our way as the thirty something grown adults we are.
Added to this, guess what my mum got me for Christmas?
A voodoo dolly of the Wickedex, and a set of pins.
What a great family.

Yeah, I'm not usually nice about people; feels weird.

I left the dolly just above the Slippers From Hell, in the packing pile.

you could use them to create an anti-shrine? or just burn, possibly :P

If she doesn't take them, it may be the only option left. Hopefully no potential house purchasers will walk in and witness the ceremony.
