feywood: Dean Winchester with a mouth full of food ((Dean) food!)
I'm spending a long weekend at my parents (and typing this on their qwerty keyboarded laptop, so typing is frustrating and slow) and it feels very odd. On the one hand, it definitely isn't like when I lived here and I'm not expected to do chores, on the other hand, I feel much more willing to do them (even the ones I don't do at home).
Most peculiar.

Spent Christmas eve here with parents, brother and his girlfriend. Foie gras, fondue and pictionary. And a massive amount of sex and cock jokes. Oh my. Also a lot of wine, this may have had something to do with it.
My brother turned out to know me quite well, present wise. He got me all of little britain and a book of cute amigurumi patterns. It's so fucking adorable. Then again, I did score massive points by getting him the magnetic thinking putty. I don't think he's let go of it yet. Don't know if I'm ever going to top that.

Christmas was... difficult. Large family party at my uncle's, too many people. My social battery was drained in a good two hours. I tried to keep it nice and polite and didn't resort to whining at mum about going home, but it was all I could do not to be running away from the table all the time to go and hide.
On the other hand, the food was amazing. Om nom nom bambi.

And now I've slept a lovely sleep, mum's off to work and dad has made croissants from scratch. Then lunch with leftovers (smoked eel on red beet/apple puree! raw tuna with raw courgette and ginger mayonaise! parsnip soup!) and then I go home again for a few more days off to very quietly celebrate my birthday. Good times.
