Today’s prompt is:  The time someone or something ruined your holiday season.

This is easy.
The award goes to my ex partner for getting so drunk after work on Christmas Eve knowing we were due to travel down to spend Christmas with my parents, throwing up in the middle of the road en route then throwing up again in my Dad’s rose bushes when we arrived.
He made it worse by sulking because we didn’t go down the pub before dinner, then told me we had to leave afterwards as he’d promised his Ex Wife to deliver the kids to her for Christmas tea and Boxing Day.
It ruined my Christmas as I saw my parents so rarely and knew Mum had pulled out all the stops for a three day stay.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    That’s one not to remember Di. Glad you moved on from that one.

    That has to go down in the annals of one of the worst Christmases from hell I’ve ever read about. Good job, and in only 120 words!

    • It was for me. I couldn’t make a fuss though because the kids were still young and I didn’t want to ruin Christmas for them, but when we’d dropped them off, I made my feelings known. He laughed and went up to the pub on his own.
