Please, please, please label depressing Christmas/death/other world stories either as such or as part of some competition or the other!
I desperately try to avoid such for obvious reasons. I have just read Bo’s by mistake, no doubt a laudable attempt but too bloody close to home to actually appreciate the composition!!!
I do my damnedest to keep my days far too full to maunder, an activity of which I strictly disapprove, but festive seasons are pretty bloody grim however hard one tries.
