When I say family I mean my immediate family; my two brothers, Jez's girlfriend, Mum and Dad, Nana and myself.
This year, one of my maternal Uncles, his wife and two of my cousins from Interstate are coming over on Christmas Eve... and therefore are coming over on Christmas Day to partake of our Christmas meal and festivities. They invited themselves down to Adelaide because they haven't seen Nana for a while.
I know I should feel like a terrible, terrible, uncharitable, Ebenezer Scrooge-like person for saying this, but; I really don't want them to come. I really don't want them to come. I couldn't want them to come any less than I currently do. I barely know these people, and of what I do know of them I'm not particularly fond.
I am working on my people skills, you know. I do try.
