Have been back home for a few days, have just finished knitting Dad's tie and then am going to wrap things and head round to my parents. 

Exam was on Thursday. I hope it went okay. I know I f*cked up a couple of pieces of coursework this term (well, at least one, but an important one for that module), so I am a bit disappointed in myself about that, but really pleased that to most classes and everything in on time.

Did small Christmas dinner with friend in halls on Saturday, and stayed up till I fell asleep (we were aiming to pull an all-nighter and watch the sunrise, but I did not manage this given how late sunrise was at the time). Then mum came to help me pack up things, and we got the Oxford Tube home, then [personal profile] dollpart came round and decorated the Christmas tree with me (which we've done two years running, so now is a tradition I guess) and we drank much wine, and went for lunch. 

I've spent the last few days enjoying the solitude I haven't had for months, and reading stuff on my kindle (I am yet to connect my kindle to university internet). Now probably a few days of family stuff. 

Dreams are weird at the moment, as is sleep generally. I'm also in a wistful, slightly sad state which is not *that* bad, but unpleasant because I know all I can do is wait for it to pass or distract myself. As Christmas's go, it's not bad- my marriage hasn't just ended, I'm not on leave from hospital, I'm not flattened out the way I was for a few years. I have friends who care about me, my relationship with my family is a lot better than it was, I have a plan for what to do with my life for the meantime and people supporting me to do it, and I like all these things a great deal. 

Hope everyone has a good Christmas. Don't know if I will post much for the next while (I'd like to do a year review thing, but I might do that on LJ). Going to get dressed, make coffee, wrap things and go to my folks now.

I requested something from [livejournal.com profile] azdaja_dafema 
The first five people to comment in this post get to request a sketch of a subject/character of their choosing from me. In return, they are asked to post this in their journal (the LOLs coming from drawing what you can't draw are part of the fun).

and then I commented on this on [livejournal.com profile] madhattie34 , and now I cannot get the type out of italic



Leave me a comment and I will reply with why I like you. If I don't know you, I'll either make something up or tell you why I like your LiveJournal. You must pay for the privilege by posting a message like this one on your LiveJournal.

On the subject of liking you guys, anybody want a christmas/holiday card? It may be very late, I may discover that postage is ridiculous, but I will try.
