My failed attempt at reading A Christmas Carol

a-christmas-carol

 

So I decided to read A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens over Christmas last year, I thought it’s Christmas I’ll have plenty of time to read this.

Boy was I wrong.

Christmas happened to be at our house this year, which ended up being the most crazy four days of my life. We had relatives coming and going all four days, we had meal after meal after meal to make and then came dessert.

I also had my cat sleeping in my room, which resulted in her waking me up at all hours of the night, leaving me tired everyday.

So in the end reading was the furthest thing from my mind.

But I’m determined to read it this year, it is now one of my new years resolutions. Third time lucky hopefully.
