Granny knitted a family heirloom this year when she churned out 3 wise men, 3 sheep, 2 shepherds, Mary, Joseph, Jesus, a crib and an onlooking donkey. This is right up with her efforts in the 80s when I commanded her to turn out some extremely complicated designs (way more complicated than pictured below but you get the idea of the style) in time for various social events. Anyway - the obvious problem is there's more than one descendant so I'll clearly have to up my efforts to get my siblings disinherited asap. So Mum it was Paul who cleaned my roller skates with your toothbrush, not me as previously thought. And despite previous admissions to the contrary it was Denny who painted the side of the house with orange enamel paint when Dad told me her explicitly that she was not allowed to touch that paint. If that doesn't work maybe I should just get in early and start sticking little red stickers onto them with 'cathy' written on them.
